The Daily Mirror reported over the weekend that Liam and Noel Gallagher have reached a "gentleman's agreement" to reform Oasis. NME has reached out to Liam for comment and was met with a "no comment" response. The Mirror reported, "It's early days in terms of the details, but Noel and Liam are back on good terms and ready to give things another go. Nothing is signed but it's what you might call a gentlemen's agreement between them. Ultimately they’re family and whatever has gone on before can be sorted out – they're very close beneath all the bluster."Noel has denied he would reform the band over recent months, no new comment has been made about the rumors.
