British Band Plunge to Death

The four members of British indie band Viola Beach and their manager have died in a car crash in Sweden.

Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe and Jack Dakin and manager Craig Tarry were killed when their car plunged more than 25m (82ft) from a highway bridge into a canal.

The incident happened in the early hours of Saturday near Stockholm. Mr Tarry's family say they are grieving his loss and "for the other families involved in this tragic accident".

In a statement, issued via the UK Foreign Office, they said they were "devastated", adding: "Craig was a warm, loving person who had worked tirelessly to achieve success and follow his dreams within the music industry.

"He will be sadly missed by his family and his colleagues." The Foreign Office earlier confirmed the deaths and said it was supporting the families.
'Swings and Waterslides' The band were part of the line-up for Swedish music festival Where is the Music? on Friday and were due to play a gig in Guildford in Surrey on Saturday.

A musician who played at the same gig in Sweden said "they were fantastic people to be around".
John Olsson, from Swedish band Psykofant, said: "They were a great band. I was standing in the audience thinking I will be able to say I hung around with Viola Beach before they made it big."
The Boiler Room - the Guildford venue they were due to play - said it was "saddened and devastated" to learn of the deaths.

Blossoms, the band that was meant to be headlining the gig, tweeted: "Absolutely devastated for the loss of Viola Beach and Craig Tarry. Our thoughts are with their friends and families."
- from BBC News

I wonder if they were driving tired, or intoxicated even? It's all very odd...

I have to admit I have never heard of them, real shitty way to go out.

I'd not heard of them either until the story broke. It sounds like they were just starting to get going too

Re: British Band Plunge to Death

I read about this yesterday. Really sad. Just when they had started getting going as well. Feel for the families. Broken dreams and broken hearts.
