VIDEO: Oasis preview Supersonic documentary

Oasis are sharing a preview of the upcoming documentary, “Supersonic.”

Directed by Mat Whitecross, the feature-length film traces the meteoric rise through the first five years of the Manchester band formed in 1991 and led by the brothers Gallagher – vocalist Liam and guitarist Noel.

The project is named after the lead single from the group’s iconic 1994 album, “Definitely Maybe”, which shot out of the gate as the fastest selling debut album of all time in the UK upon its release.

Oasis cemented their status as the UK’s biggest band with a pair of record-breaking sellout shows at Knebworth Park in 1996, where they played to 125,000 fans per night after 2.6 million people applied for tickets.

All seven of the group’s studio albums reached UK No. 1 before Oasis disbanded in 2009, as did a 2010 compilation of 27 singles entitled “Time Flies... 1994–2009.”

The band went on to sell more than 70 million albums worldwide.

"Oasis was definitely like a Ferrari,” explains Liam. “Great to look at, great to drive and it will spin out of control every now and again when you go too fast. I loved every minute of it."

“Supersonic” will debut in cinemas in the UK and Ireland on October 2 with a special event broadcast via satellite in theatres nationwide followed by a full cinema release on October 14.

The film will be issued on DVD/Blu-ray on October 31.
