Noel Gallagher has revealed he is friends with his ex-Oasis bandmates - who are now in the band Beady Eye - and recently met up with them for a night out

Noel Gallagher is still friends with his former Oasis bandmates.

The songwriter insists they are no hard feelings with the musicians he used to work with following his decision to quit the super-group in 2009 after a backstage bust-up with his brother, singer Liam Gallagher.

In the aftermath Noel launched a solo career while Liam formed new group Beady Eye with the other members Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock.

However, the High Flying Birds frontman insists they all get along well now and spent a recent night together drinking.

Refusing to reveal whether Liam was involved in the meet-up, Noel said: "I was with some of Beady Eye the other night and they are still plugging away. They're good lads. We all got completely s**t-faced and we talked nonsense for hours. It was good."

Quickly stopping speculation they may have discussed an Oasis reunion, he added: "Though not about a reunion, for anyone trying to seize on that."

The 47-year-old musician was speaking at a Q&A session at Facebook HQ to announce his new album 'Chasing Yesterday' - out March 2 2015 - and one cheeky fan couldn't resist asking about the possibility of an Oasis reunion.

When quizzed if he'd play solo material when the band reforms, Noel laughed: "What reunion? You tell me, you seem to know."

The 'Don't Look Back In Anger' singer also scoffed at his brother Liam's criticism of the recent anniversary re-issue of Oasis' debut LP 'Definitely Maybe', insisting he wouldn't be complaining about the money earned from it

Noel said: "What did Liam say, (rehashing?) Really? I bet he didn't say that when he was putting the cheque in the bank."

As well as his new album Noel also announced his next single, 'In the Heat of the Moment', will be released digitally and on limited-edition vinyl on November 17 and he will be heading out on a UK arena tour next March.
