Viola Beach were an English indie rock group, formed in Warrington, Cheshire, in 2013. The band's final line-up consisted of Kris Leonard (guitar and vocals), River Reeves (guitar), Tomas Lowe (bass guitar), and Jack Dakin (drums). All four, along with their manager Craig Tarry, were killed when their car fell from a bridge in Södertälje, Sweden, on 13 February 2016. Founding members Frankie Coulson and Jonny Gibson are the last surviving members of the band as of 2023.
In the week following the crash, their single "Boys That Sing" entered the UK Singles Chart at number 80 and their previous single "Swings & Waterslides" entered at number 11, following a public campaign to boost sales. In the same week, "Swings & Waterslides" also entered at number three on the sales-only chart (which excludes streaming data) and "Boys That Sing" entered at number 27 on the same chart. On 29 July 2016, the self-titled album was posthumously released. It reached number one on the UK Albums Chart on 5 August 2016.
