Beady Eye played two tracks from their forthcoming new album ‘BE’ on Later… With Jools Holland last night (May 30) – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch.

The band performed recent singles ‘Flick Of The Finger’ and ‘Second Bite Of The Apple’ on the BBC Two show. Liam Gallagher and Andy Bell also spoke to Holland briefly about their new record. Both tracks have previously been revealed online. ‘BE’, which was produced by TV On The Radio‘s Dave Sitek, is set to be released on June 10.

Gallagher recently said that the band will also be performing on the upcoming series of The X Factor. Although the former Oasis frontman had previously branded the show as “annoying”, he said that he had agreed to play live on the TV talent contest to capitalise on its large audience and promote the band’s new album. “We’re doing X Factor, I think it’s to be on one of the live shows,” he said. “I don’t care, man, we’re rock’n’roll stars and you can’t argue that’s a huge audience. You have to take that opportunity.”

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.
