The group, along with their manager, were killed in Stockholm in February when the van they were traveling in fell from bridge and crashed into the canal below.

Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin introduced the track by saying “We’re going to create Viola Beach’s alternative future for them and let them headline Glastonbury for a song.”

The group’s self titled album will be released tomorrow July 29th via Communion Records in the UK.
