Beady Eye

British rockers Beady Eye have officially started work on their next album. A statement from the band reads: “Beady Eye have returned to the studio to start on the follow up to their Different Gear, Still Speeding debut album released last year. Liam, Gem, Andy and Chris started sessions today with producer Dave Sitek... Release date is yet to be confirmed but the as yet untitled album will come out in 2013.”

Producer Dave Sitek, from the band TV On The Radio, has previously worked with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Jane's Addiction, to mention just a few. Since the split of Oasis the Gallagher brothers have been busy with their respective bands, Liam with Beady Eye and Noel with Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Recently former Oasis bassist Andy Bell spoke to Drowned In Sound about his thoughts on a possible Oasis reunion sometime in the future: “I'd love it to happen. I think that life's too short for it not to happen. But, in reality, do I see it happening? At this point, no I don't. The matter rests entirely with the two brothers. It probably should happen at some point but if they can't make it happen, no one should force them to.”
