Listen To Sit Down In Front's Album 'Confessions Of A Pie Thief'

Annabel Kean / Friday 26th June, 2020 11:14AM

Gisborne teen punks Sit Down In Front are screaming into earshot and slamming their gritty new album Confessions Of A Pie Thief onto the table. For their ripsnorter sophomore release, the four-piece took over Roundhead Studios with a hand from hot shot producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Opshop, Feelers), resulting in some mind melting riffage and bass harmony, playing off of every punchy lyric belted out by sixteen year old lead singer Cory Newman, who uses a wheelchair due to Cerebral Palsy. Along with the album drop, single 'First World Problems' has had the fish-eye video treatment, as the band members follow and mock a privileged whinger around his house as he laments over tangled cords, running out of toilet paper, and having to choose between a really big apple and a really small apple.

After a casual year of supporting the likes of fellow rabble-rousers Jimmy Barnes, Cold Chisel, and Head Like a Hole, the Sit Down In Front crew can't stop outdoing their own major successes. I would pay good money to stomp and shout along to stand-out tracks 'Don't Push The Button', 'Confessions Of A Pie Thief' (pay extra attention to the guitar solo in this one), and 'Bull Horns' in 2020. We were lucky enough to score an interview with frontman Newman, which we'll have up on the site next week, once you've got these new songs well and truly drilled into your brain...

Check your privilege and your Nespresso machine user manual with the tongue in cheek clip for 'First World Problems'...

Sit Down In Front's 'Confessions Of A Pie Thief' is out now online.
