British rock quartet Viola Beach were a band on the rise, playing Brit-pop with a bit of cheek and optimism like the Kooks or early Arctic Monkeys. They gained notable buzz after receiving backing from BBC Introducing, which secured them a slot at the 2015 Reading and Leeds Festivals. In early 2016, they released "Boys That Sing" and "Like a Fool" and were in the midst of preparations for a tour and a batch of major festival appearances. On February 13, 2016, less than a month after the release of their final singles, the band and manager Craig Tarry were killed in a car crash in Sodertalje, Sweden. The outpouring from fellow British bands was immediate. Their self-titled debut LP received a posthumous release in July 2016, debuting at number one on the U.K. charts.
