A song penned by a teenager killed in a coach crash on his way home from a British festival last year (12) has been released by the event's organiser ROB DA BANK.

The track, titled Rise And Fall, was written by Michael Molloy, from Liverpool, England and recorded in July last year (12), just weeks before his death at the age of 18 when a bus transporting more than 50 festival-goers from Bestival crashed into a tree on 10 September (12).

The song was completed by his friend and musical collaborator Alex Evans and released by Rob da Bank, real name Robert John Gorham, through his Sunday Best label, entering the U.K. Singles Chart on Sunday (05May13) at Number 38.

Rob Da Bank said, "It's obvious to me that Michael was a young and rare talent and that music was an extremely important part of his life. I've heard he absolutely loved Bestival and had a great time at Bestival 2012, so I feel privileged to be able to help his family fulfil his and their ambition of getting Michael's music out there."

Michael's mum Frances adds, "The release of Michael's single will represent a small step in the long and hard job of rebuilding our lives. We will always be thankful for the fact that he was the happiest 18-year-old alive at the time of his death. He was fulfilled and full of hopes and dreams. One of those dreams was for his talent to be recognised."

Bestival takes place annually over three days on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England.
