RIP Viola Beach
News is currently reaching us of the death of the four members of the Warrington based band Viola Beach along with their manager following a car crash in Sweden. Apparently the crash occurred on Saturday when the car broke through the barriers of a bridge and fell 80ft into a canal.
The band had played at the Where Is The Music? festival in Sweden and were heading back to the UK to play a gig in Guildford last night.
Viola Beach had been lauded by BBC Introducing and were widely tipped for bigger things with a major gig for the Warrington Parr Hall lined up for October along with appearances at major festivals in the summer.
Our thoughts are with the families at this sad time.
RIP Viola Beach.
