HARD SOUL CELEBRATES 20th ANNIVERSARY OF OASIS CLASSIC '(WHAT'S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY?'
Band to perform album in its entirety on exact anniversary of original release
ALBANY, NY – Emotive rockers Hard Soul have announced a special concert to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of ‘(What's the Story) Morning Glory?’ by Oasis, performing the album in its entirety on Friday, October 2 at Dinosaur BBQ in Troy, NY, exactly two decades to the day since the album was released.
"'(What's the Story) Morning Glory?' is an absolute classic record, probably one of only a handful from the last twenty years," said Johnny Salka, lead singer & guitarist of Hard Soul. "When it became clear that the long-anticipated Oasis reunion wasn't going to happen we knew it fell upon us to remind everyone how this quintessential 90’s Brit-pop classic shaped music history and changed the world.”
'(What's the Story) Morning Glory?' was released on October 2, 1995, transforming Oasis from indie rock heroes into international superstars almost overnight. The album spawned six hit singles, all penned by songwriter and guitarist Noel Gallagher, including "Some Might Say," "Roll with It," "Wonderwall," "Don't Look Back in Anger," “Morning Glory” and "Champagne Supernova."
“Great songs trump all else, and ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’ has them in spades,” said Salka. “It’s a forgotten legendary record that rightfully deserves recognition and a place in the pantheon of rock n’ roll.”
‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’ went on to sell over 14 million copies. Oasis released a total of seven studio albums, touring the world many times over until their break-up in 2009. Recently, speculation swirled over a reconciliation of the Gallagher brothers and eventual reunion of the ban, but never materialized.
In addition to a performance of the album, Hard Soul will also be performing songs from their latest EP 'Fairer Shores' which dropped earlier this year, including the newest single "The Sweetest Heart."
