Liam, left, and Noel Gallagher in happier times.

Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher says he's leaving the British pop band because he can't work "a day longer" with his brother Liam.

A statement from Gallagher on the band's Web site says he's leaving the group "with some sadness and great relief."

"It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.

"Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan."

The band were due to play a festival in Paris Friday but didn't take the stage. A message flashed to the crowd said "as a result of an altercation within the band, the Oasis gig has been canceled."

For his part, Liam doesn't sound all that broken up about it, according to an interview last week in ContactMusic:

"He doesn't like me and I don't like him, that's it. He hasn't told me what he thinks of anything this year. We've got nothing to say to each other at the moment.

"The only time I see him is onstage and we're a little bit busy (at) that time to be fucking scratching each other."

The brothers have a rich history of violent arguments with eachother, and have taken to various platforms, including Twitter, lately to make their mutual loathing know.

Gallagher's statement sends "apologies to all the people who bought tickets" for the band's remaining shows in France, Italy, and Germany.

Oasis was one of the biggest British bands of the 1990s, with hits like "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova."
