This is just unbelievably tragic.

An entire band is dead after a car accident early Saturday morning killed the foursome and their manager.

Viola Beach was in Sweden for the Where is the Music? festival on Friday, but when they were returning to their hotel after the concert, their car veered off the highway and fell 82 feet into a canal.

Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe and Jack Dakin and their manager Craig Tarry were all killed in the crash.

While there was speculation that the driver was intoxicated before the accident, we’re hearing that Craig was actually sober — it was simply an accident.

Fans are honoring the late Brits by downloading their debut single Swings & Waterslides and it is currently at No. 3 on the Indie charts.

Rest in peace, boys.
