After the phenomenal reaction to his solo track “Wall of Glass’ and the emotional scenes that accompanied his first solo shows, Liam Gallagher can now announce that his eagerly anticipated debut album ‘As You Were’ will be released on October 6th.

The result is exactly what you would have hoped a Liam Gallagher solo album would sound like: the passion for the classic 60s/70s influence that he’s always had has been updated for the here and now.

“I didn’t want to be reinventing anything or going off on a space jazz odyssey,” says Liam. “It’s the Lennon ‘Cold Turkey’ vibe, The Stones, the classics. But done my way, now.”

The album’s cover features an iconic new portrait of Liam which was taken by the influential photographer, fashion designer and creative director Hedi Slimane.

Samhain Festival returns in 2017 for a massive fancy-dress Halloween celebration in a brand new location.

Just 20mins outside Dublin and with dedicated shuttles running, the site is fully weatherproof – so no need to bring your wellies!
