Manchester upstarts The Empty Page had a busy 2016 which saw the band complete their biggest UK tour to date. 2017 continues the hectic trend as the trio embark on their spring tour in support of their latest album ‘Unfolding’. The record was produced by legendary producer Gggarth Richardson, who’s worked with Biffy Clyro, Rage Against The Machine and The Melvins to name a few.

Wardrobe Malfunction‘, taken from their new album ‘Unfolding‘ (Vociferous Records/2016) looks at the current hot button issue of controversial legislation against transgender and gender-non-confirming people’s rights to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity.

The attitude of lead vocalist and bassist Kel is backed up by guitarist Giz and drummer Jim to show what Brit punk with a grunge twist stands for in the 21st century. The real social issues tackled and debated across the globe in real time thanks to our social (and increasingly anti-social) media age. The song is a riotous yet danceable anthem for a highly opinionated millennial generation, still striving to define themselves against the old guard.
