‘The Roller’ is the first single to be taken from Beady Eye’s debut album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’. It will be released on 7” single on the 21 February but will also be available from 24 January on ITunes. The 7” features a brand new song on the b-side titled ‘Two of A Kind’. The single will receive its first radio play tomorrow Friday 7 January.
The video for ‘The Roller’ will be premiered on Channel 4 at midnight on the 10 January, and promises daredevil stunts. The band recorded the film in sub zero temperatures in Cambridgeshire in December performing in a ‘Motorcycle Wall of Death’, one of only two in the country, complete with motorcycle stunt riders.
This is the third track Beady Eye have made available for fans to hear after giving away a free download of ‘Bring The Light’ via their website link in November, and premiering a video for ‘Four Letter Word’ on Boxing Day on nme.com and the band’s own site. The songs have been viewed over one million times since appearing on the band’s site. All songs will be on ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ which is released on 28 February 2011 on Beady Eye Records.
