Liam Gallagher's post-Oasis group, Beady Eye, has disbanded.
Gallagher kept it short in his announcement via Twitter today (October 24), NME reports. "Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support. LGx," the singer tweeted. Former Oasis bassist and Beady Eye member Andy Bell took to the social networking site to express his gratitude for the fans. "Thanks to all the Beady Eye fans. I had a blast. See you on the other side. Big Love Andy B X," he wrote.
Beady Eye formed in 2009 and featured Gallagher, Bell, Jay Mehler and former Oasis members Gem Archer and Chris Sharrock. Their first studio album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, was released in 2011 and hit 31 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Its follow-up, BE, came out last year.
"The problem with Beady Eye is they were born with a point to prove — but only to their lead singer," NME wrote about the second release. "The band's debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding matched or exceeded most people's tempered expectations for it, but only Liam Gallagher ever seriously entertained the notion that they would become 'bigger than Oasis,' and only Liam would have been surprised when Noel's record outstripped their own, critically and commercially. Clearly, when you've spent all of your adult life in one of the biggest bands in the world, the indignity of being in Just Another One takes some getting used to."
The band left manager Scott Rodger earlier this year after cancelling an appearance at Coachella, BBC Radio 1 notes. In a statement at the time, Rodger called Beady Eye one of the "last great British rock bands."
