Oasis Frontman's New Band Has Broken Up
Beady Eye has now been shut.
Frontman Liam Gallagher announced Oct. 25 on Twitter that the rock group has broken up. The band had parted ways with its manager earlier this year, according to NME.
"Beady Eye are no longer," the former Oasis singer tweeted. "Thanks for all your support. LGx"
Liam and three other members of Oasis formed Beady Eye in 2009 after Liam's brother Noel Gallagher left that band.
Beady Eye has released two albums, 2011's Still Speeding and 2013's BE, both of which hit the top 5 of the U.K. album chart. However, only one of the band's songs, "The Roller," cracked the U.K. top 40.
News of the band's split has led some Oasis fans to hope for a reunion. Beady Eye began performing Oasis tunes during concerts in 2012, including a performance of "Wonderwall" at the closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics.
Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support. LGx— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) October 25, 2014
