Beady Eye guitarist Gem Archer has been hospitalised with severe head trauma.

The guitarist - pictured above second from left - was involved in an accident on the evening of August 1 and was taken to hospital. A statement released by the band reveals that Archer is currently in a stable condition but will stay in hospital under observation for the time being.

The statement continues:

His family, friends and bandmates thank everyone who have sent messages of support and well wishes so far and hope to see him back on his feet soon. An update on his condition will follow.



It was previously revealed that Beady Eye were cancelling gigs in Belgium and Japan because of an injury suffered by Archer. The Liam Gallagher-fronted band were expected to play the Lokerse Festival in Belgium tonight (August 5), before a set at Summer Sonic in Tokyo, Japan on Saturday (August 10). It is currently unclear whether Archer will recover to play V Festival on August 17, the band's next scheduled gig.

Over the weekend fellow band member Andy Bell offered his support to Archer by tweeting: "Wanna wish my brother @gemarcherbe a speedy recovery X."
