London: Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is supporting a campaign to get indie band Viola Beach to the top of the charts after its members died in a car accident.
He has tweeted his support for the indie band, after the group died alongside their manager Craig Terry in a car accident on February 13, reports mirror.co.uk.
The 43-year-old tweeted a link to the band's music on iTunes as family, friends and fans campaign to get them to the top of the charts.
He wrote along with it: "Viola Beach - Swings & Waterslides - RIP LG X"
Band members Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe and Jack Dakin had played a festival in Norrkoping, Sweden, just hours before their tour vehicle plunged off a bridge.

The group's single "Swings & waterslides" is currently placed at number four in the iTunes charts, according to the online store's ongoing rankings.
