Sad news, and I'll not attempt to even write anything of worth. Instead, here's a statement from the band's PR firm, Super Cat PR.
Following the tragic passing of Viola Beach and their manager Craig Tarry, a campaign is being driven by friends and family to propel the Warrington band’s debut single up the charts.
The band's independent, self-released single, “Swings and Waterslides” is being pushed with the intent of sharing the band’s music with a wider audience of future fans. The hope is that in spite of Saturday’s tragedy, the music the band worked so hard to create can still reach and be enjoyed by as many people as possible.
