Blossoms will also commemorate the band's scheduled support slot by playing the full audio of their set.

A tribute video has been created for Viola Beach's Swings & Waterslides single, following the news of their tragic passing

The YouTube video sees the band members introducing themselves and performing the single, which is currently part of a campaign to get the band to No.1. 

Watch the moving video below:

Frontman Kris Leonard, (19) guitarist River Reeves (19), bassist Tomas Lowe (27), drummer Jack Dakin (24) and their manager Craig Tarry (32), were returning from Sweden's Where Is The Music festival on Friday 12 February when their car fell off a bridge at the Södertälje canal.

Their friends and family started the campaign this week to get the single to No.1, with famous rockers also adding their support. 

Liam Gallagher led the tweets, with a post on his official Twitter account, sharing a link to their Swings & Waterslides single.

The Stone Roses also tweeted their support, writing: "Let's get them to No.1".

Also keen to give the cause a helping hand were Kasabian, who after hearing the news, tweeted: "Our hearts go out to the families and friends".

All proceeds from the track will be donated to the family of the band and their manager. 

Meanwhile Blossoms have announced that they'll be playing the entire set intended for Voila Beach's support slot at their upcoming gig.

Taking to their official Facebook account, they wrote: "We'll never forget them. Their tunes forever in our heads; Craig, Jack, Kris, River and Tom always in our hearts.

"All their families have been contacted and tonight, and then on every date on the tour they were due to join us on, we will mark their slot by playing a full audio recording of their set that was recorded from the Leamington Spa show."

They added: "If you're coming to the gigs, get down early and celebrate their lives with an outpouring of love: Dance, drink and sing along. Viola Beach & Craig Tarry RIP"
