Remembering Viola Beach: Listen Again To Our Special Album Playback


Viola Beach Album Playback

Listen back to a very special Album Playback of the Viola Beach album.


One year ago we lost a young band at the start of their career. Radio X remembers them and celebrates their music in this special programme.

Last year, we paid tribute to the young Warrington band Viola Beach by hosting a very special playback session of their debut album, a day ahead of its release.

Following the tragic death of band members Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe, Jack Dakin, and their manager Craig Tarry in a car crash in Sweden on 13 February 2016, their families decided to release an album posthumously in honour of their memory.

In a show presented by Communion's Maz Tappuni - who worked closely with the band - we played all nine tracks of their eponymous LP, and featured tributes from the band members' family, friends and fellow musicians.
