Beady Eye have announced that they will play a tiny instore gig at London’s Rough Trade East.
The band will take to the stage at the east London record shop at 7pm on June 10. Wristbands will be available on the day for fans who pick up a copy of the band’s new album ‘BE’ in store on a one-per-purchase basis. Any remaining wristbands will be given out an hour prior to stage time.
Beady Eye release ‘BE’, their follow-up to 2011’s ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’, on the day of the instore gig. The album was produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, whom frontman Liam Gallagher recently declared “the bollocks”.
In a recent interview Gallagher delivered a message to diehard Oasis fans planning to boycott the album. He said: “We’ve made a great rock and roll album but sometimes I feel there’s a lot of people just fucking boycotting what Beady Eye do just for some stupid fucking reason. ‘We’ll boycott that shit no matter what they do because it ain’t Oasis and we want Oasis’ and all that kind of thing. Well fuck you! We’ve experimented or whatever it is, what more do you fucking want?”
Beady Eye will play live at Manchester Ritz on June 19 before heading to London for a show at Camden Centre on June 20. The short stint will then come to a close in Glasgow at the ABC on June 22. The band have lined up festival slots at V Festival, Benicassim and T In The Park this summer.
