viola beachViola Beach were a four piece from Warrington who alongside their manager tragically passed away in a car accident on the way home from a festival in Sweden.

The band had released a couple of singles and were scheduled to support Blossoms on their UK tour earlier this year.

An album containing 9 tracks by Viola Beach , including previously released singles Swings and Waterslides and Boys That Sing, will be released posthumously on the band’s own label Fuller Beans Records on July 29th. The artwork and tracklisting can be found below.

Read their families’ statement below:

We are tremendously proud of everything the boys achieved in such a short space of time. Craig, Jack, Kris, River and Tom shared a huge passion, talent and dedication to music.

We believe the best way to celebrate our sons’ lives is to release an album of their songs.

This is their legacy and we know deep in our hearts that the boys would want the world to listen to the music they poured everything into. This was only the beginning for them and these nine songs were written with every intention to be shared, heard and, most of all, enjoyed.

We hope that it brings you as much happiness listening to it as we know it did to them making it.
