“Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for the support. LGx” he wrote on Twitter, revealing that the band had decided to call it a day after five years together.
Former Oasis and Beady Eye bandmate Andy Bell also took to social media to express his thanks to the fans for their Eye support.
“Thanks to all the Beady Eye fans,” he wrote on Twitter. “I had a blast. See you on the other side. Big Love Andy B X”.
Beady Eye release two albums, 2011’s Different Gear, Still Speeding and last year’s follow up B.E. However, despite achieving modest success with his Oasis follow up project it is really Liam’s former band that he is most known and loved for.
But after clashing with his brother Noel for many years during Oasis’s combustible reign of the charts in the nineties and early noughties, the band imploded after one fight too many when Liam and Noel dramatically fell out backstage at a show in 2009.
They have spoken little since but appear to have buried the hatchet after their paths crossed at a family event earlier this year. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Oasis’s seminal album Definitely Maybe, which was re-released this summer, and which again has fuelled speculation that the ban could be considering reforming.
Big brother Noel was recently seen in London last week when he took to the stage of Brixton Academy alongside friend and fellow Manchester musician Johnny Marr at the latter’s headline solo show to perform a storming cover of Iggy Pop’s Lust For Life as well as accompanying the former Smiths man on a set closing How Soon Is Now?
