After more than a month of obscurity, Oasis have finally named a U.S. distributor for their forthcoming seventh album; The Gallaghers’ Big Brother Recordings has joined forces with Warner Bros. for the stateside release of Dig Out Your Soul, the band’s follow up to 2006’s Lord Don’t Slow Me Down, set to arrive Oct. 7.

The album, produced by Dave Sardy, the man behind the boards on 2005’s Don’t Believe the Truth, was recorded at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios, mixed in Los Angeles, and, in addition to arriving with a “more hypnotic” sound, says songwriter Noel Gallagher, certainly has Warner Bros. CEO Diarmuid Quinn all smiles.

“Oasis are a world class band with a remarkable history,” he said in statement. “Everyone at Warner/Reprise could not be more excited at the prospect of supporting such great artists, and working closely with Big Brother to continue to increase Oasis’ profile in North America.”
