Liam Gallagher's New Band, Beady Eye Set to Drop Debut Record in March
Formed by three former members of the multi-platinum selling rock group Oasis, rock outfit Beady Eye is prepping to unleash it's music on North America this March. Due out March 1st on Dangerbird Records, Different Gear, Still Speeding will mark the bands North American debut. Written by the band (Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock) and recorded at RAK Studios in London, Beady Eye wrangled in Grammy Award-winning producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Dave Matthews Band, The Smiths) to serve as producer on their debut. "The Roller," is the album's lead single and was serviced to radio last Monday with a digital release on iTunes expected sometime next month. You can also check out the recently released video for "The Roller," below.
Fans have been waiting new Beady Eye material ever since the group first released "Bring On The Light" (download HERE) last fall, where it was downloaded or played more than 350,000 times in a 24-hour period. Signing the band to Dangerbird Records is a big deal for CEO Jeff Castelaz, a longtime fan.
"Like just about everyone else on the planet, I've been a fan of Liam's voice since I first heard it, and I'm thrilled to be a part of his evolution as an artist," Jeff Castelaz, CEO of Dangerbird said. "Beady Eye is a fresh new act with its own sound, and we're honored to have them join Dangerbird's gang."
Beady Eyes first European tour this March sold out within 30 minutes of going on sale so look out for details on the band's forthcoming U.S. dates by signing up on the band's website.
