I have a Valentine's Day list coming later on today but this is something important I wanted to share first!
  1. Viola Beach are an indie band from my hometown of Warrington. One of their members was just a year older than me and went to my high school.
  2. Yesterday, they were in a serious car crash whilst on tour in Sweden. All four members and their tour manager sadly passed away.
  3. This awful news has devastated our entire town, school, local community. The guys in the band were well known and it's heartbreaking that they were just starting out on what looked like a potentially brilliant career.
  4. Here's the link to their single. It would mean the world if you could buy it on iTunes, stream it on Spotify and share.
  5. The goal is to get them to number 1. They're already doing well on the iTunes chart - if UK people could get them into the official chart, that would be amazing.
    I'm not sure if the link will work for people outside of the UK but sharing would be helpful!
  6. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and if you can buy it/stream it, thank you thank you thank you
  7. There's more details on my Twitter if you need.
  8. I know this would mean so much to everyone that knew the band ❤️
  9. UPDATE: no 7 in the Vodafone chart!!
    The official Radio 1 chart is on Friday - keep downloading and sharing
  10. UPDATE: after a lot of support from a whole range of people - including Liam Gallagher himself! -
  11. Viola Beach reached #1 in the iTunes chart
  12. And #11 in the official charts
  13. This is amazing news. It just shows the power of community and social media ❤️
