Sit Down In Front

Sit Down In Front

Described by their critics as ‘infectiously fun’ and their lead singer touted as ‘magically capturing the essence of a young Johnny Rotten (Sex Pistols)’ Gisborne youngsters Sit Down in Front are notching up an enviable number of opening gigs with some of their favourite bands including Jimmy Barnes, Cold Chisel, Lagwagon, Villainy, Ozzie rockers The Chats, Skinny Hobos, Johnny Toogood, and The D4.

Having already spent 6 weeks on the NZ Music Charts with their last 3 singles ‘Rain’, “What Comes Around”, and “First World Problems”, these hard-working schoolboys are balancing school exams with studio time, taking every opportunity to lay down some catchy tunes, and have just released their eagerly anticipated second album, “Confessions Of A Pie Thief”. 

This four piece is lead from the front with frontman and lyrist Cory Newman (17), who uses a wheelchair due to his Cerebral Palsy, but whose energetic performances are enough to warm up and wow any crowd.  Backed up by talented Guitarist Jackson Clarke (16), impressive bassist Roman Benson (15) with multi-talented self-taught drummer Rikki Noble (16) it’s hard to believe these lads are two albums deep into their music careers at such a tender age.
