“Unless you have thousands of pounds to spend on touring, splitting roles is key to a stress free and enjoyable time. As a band, we all have our strengths but that doesn't mean you can't help someone out with theirs or cover a position you don't have filled.
"For example, while I'm setting up my kit our singer, who only has an acoustic guitar to plug in, sets up the merch display. On another day, he might be re-stringing his guitars and someone else who's free will set up merch. If somebody's been sitting on merch for half an hour and wants a break, I might jump on. Our bassist is also our tour manager and splits the driving between him and our singer. This saves money on getting in other people.”
