After receiving the traditional tongue-lashing most upcoming bands tend to be on the sharp end of, Brother frontman Lee Newell has shrugged off criticism aimed at the band in a recent interview conducted by Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher.
When asked about his opinion on the Slough based four-piece, Liam dismissed Brother as ‘little fucking posh lads with tattoos’. In response, Newell has claimed to be uninterested in Gallagher’s opinion, and is more concerned with what his sibling Noel thinks about the band.
“He can say what he likes,” Newell told virtualfestivals.com. “I’m more interested with what Noel thinks.”
Brother are due to appear alongside Beady Eye at this summer’s Isle Of Wight festival, and Newell described the excitement being felt by the band as they prepare to make their festival bow. “I’ve never played at a festival or anything like that before so Isle of Wight is going to be amazing,” he said. “Going over to Japan to play Supersonic is going to be insane too. Quite a few of these festivals we’ll be playing on the main stage which seems ridiculous as we haven’t released anything.”
