Beady Eye part ways with manager

Oasis offshoot Beady Eye have parted ways with manager Scott Rodger.

NME reports the band, fronted by Liam Gallagher and featuring former Oasis members Gem Archer and Andy Bell, were managed by Scott Rodger, who also works with Arcade Fire and Paul McCartney, for the duration of their “BE” campaign. However, their working relationship has come to an end following the end of the contract signed by both parties.

"Beady Eye are one of the last great British rock bands,” said Rodger in a statement. “It has been a pleasure to have worked with them on this album campaign. They are in complete control of their future as a band with many exciting new projects on the horizon. We've just about reached the end of the 'BE' album cycle and it's the right time for the band to make a change. Our paths will cross again in the future I'm sure. I wish them continued success in everything they do."

Beady Eye released their second album, “BE”, in June, 2013; their debut, “Different Gear, Still Speeding”, was released in 2011.

The group are set to play two shows in Japan at the end of March.

Gallagher’s former band, Oasis, will release a 20th anniversary edition of their 1994 debut, “Definitely Maybe”, on May 20.

The reissue will be available as a standard CD and digital download of the original album; a three-disc Special Edition version including rare recordings and demos; a 12" vinyl LP featuring all the bonus CD content as a free download; and a Deluxe Box Set which features the LP and the CDs.
