Liam Gallagher broke the news to his Twitter followers this weekend that Beady Eye has split up.
The former Oasis lead vocalist didn’t give an explanation for the split. All we know is Gallagher wrote Oct. 25, “Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support. LGx” The tweet was posted on the musician’s personal Twitter page as opposed to the band’s account.
Beady Eye’s Twitter account hasn’t been too active this year. Its most recent tweets are from February, in which the band announced it had backed out of Coachella “for reasons beyond our control.”
The English rock band was formed in 2009 following Oasis’ big breakup. Along with Gallagher, Beady Eye was guitarists Gem Archer and Andy Bell, and drummer Chris Sharrock – four out of the five members of Oasis’ final lineup. The fifth member is, of course, Liam’s brother Noel.
Beady Eye played its last show in Osaka, Japan, in March. The group put out two albums, including its most recent, 2013’s BE.
I absolutely LOVED their first album (had it as my No. 1 album of that year), and was incredibly disappointed/let down by their second album. Still a bit surprised they are pulling the plug on this. Oh well.
