Just before setting off on their first ever headlining tour, disaster struck the Not Advised camp with vocalist Jim Thomas suffering from something with his larynx resulting in him not being able to sing throughout the whole tour. What are the chances, eh? Still, in good showman fashion, the band soldier on with the members collectively filling in his spot.
Manchester openers Page Avenue (*) are an acoustic driven three-piece, but any interest in the band comes from what are clearly local friends and fans there mainly just to see them. Why they do this besides holding a friendship with the members makes the mind boggle, as though the members can clearly play what they play is just boring and dismal. Their two covers; Underoath‘s ‘Reinventing Your Exit’ and A Day To Remember‘s track ‘If It Means A Lot’ are nothing more than naff to put it mildly.
