Beady Eye To Release Debut Album on Dangerbird Records March 1

Dangerbird is incredibly proud to welcome Beady Eye (Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell from Oasis, plus Chris Sharrock) and announce the March 1st release of their debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding on Beady Eye Music/Dangerbird Records in North America.

Different Gear, Still Speeding features 13 brand new songs written by the band and recorded at RAK Studios in London last fall with GRAMMY Award-winning producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Dave Matthews Band).

“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.”

In addition to the U.S. and Canadian releases on Beady Eye Music/Dangerbird Records, Different Gear, Still Speeding will be released worldwide outside of North America on the band’s own Beady Eye Records, and boasts “The Roller” as its first official single. Canadian and U.S. fans can view “The Roller” video on YouTube.

Beady Eye was formed by three former members of Oasis, including enigmatic front man and lead vocalist Liam Gallagher. The multi-platinum and Grammy nominated Oasis sold over 70 million albums worldwide spanning seven studio albums awarded with six Brit awards, 15 NME awards, nine Q awards and four MTV Europe Music awards, just to name a few.   Beady Eye’s inaugural European Tour in March this year sold out within 30 minutes of going on sale.  They will be joined by Matt Jones on keyboards and Jeff Wootton on bass for these dates.  U.S. dates are being finalized and fans can sign up at http://www.beadyeyemusic.com to be the first to receive the news.
