Noel Gallagher hopes time will “heal” his rift with brother Liam.

The siblings have not spoken since the breakup of their band, Oasis, in 2009 – although they have both exchanged insults in the press – but while Noel thinks they will one day put their differences behind them, he warns it won’t happen before the festive season this year.

He told Grantland.com: “We never hung out together outside of the band, ever. Now, of course, at some point I’m going to have to sit in a f***ing room with Liam again.

“Hopefully time will heal some of these wounds. But if you’re asking me if it’s going to be this Christmas – not a f***ing chance.”

Guitarist Noel – who is releasing his first album with his Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds project while Liam fronts new band Beady Eye – said he knew it was time to quit Oasis when the bend started to become “violent”.

He added: “When things got violent, I left. There is no point in being in a fucking violent rock band. That’s nonsense. We’ve always had a different view of the band: I thought the most important part were the songs, and he thought the most important part was the chaos.”

Noel left Oasis before a show in Paris in August 2009 following a huge fight with his brother during which he claims Liam got a guitar and started “wielding it like an axe” and nearly took his “face off with it.”
