Different Gear, Still Speeding has received great reviews across the board in the UK including 4 out of 5 in Q Magazine and The Daily Mail, whilst songs singled out include ‘The Beat Goes On’ which Clash Magazine described as “immaculate”, and The Guardian stating “The breezily melodic ‘Millionaire’ is fantastic.”
Beady Eye was formed by three former members of Oasis, including enigmatic front man and lead vocalist Liam Gallagher. Q Magazine recently noted that “If Liam Gallagher was the greatest front man of all time then Different Gear is evidence enough that with Beady Eye he has created another great British guitar band to justify that honour.”
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 which begins in just a couple of days on March 3rd in Glasgow, Scotland 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. Select U.S. dates are being finalized and fans can sign up at http://www.beadyeyemusic.com/ to be the first to receive the news.
