New line-up presented here
Press release: Sideburn bringing in new blood for the New Year
Roland and Lionel are pleased to announce the arrival of 3 new Sideburn members:
Nick Thornton on bass, a pure Australian born rocker, who landed in Switzerland while he was touring with the 2 brothers of Maeder. "This guy has got an amazing groove and can sing as well, which will give us the possibility to play songs that we had to put aside".
On guitar two young, talented guitar players, Mikael Riffart & Lawrence Lina. "We will try to have them to play both rythm & lead guitar, this will bring some more movement on stage and be more entertaining for the audience."
Mike Riffart, the 26 year old French neighbour has been Boris's substitute on and off for 3 years now, he has played with the band live already 5 times, including their last concert of 2011 at the Festiverbant Festival. "It's a logical choice, Mike, has impressed us many times with his professionalism and friendliness."
Lawrence Lina, 25 years old, has been playing with Roland in his blues band for 2 years now and professionally since over 4 years, touring europe with several projects. "Lawrence is a real chameleon, he can play all kinds of music and can sing as well. It's probably time for him to join a band. After being a ... side man, let's join Sideburn ! "
Some more words about the new musicians:
"They are first of all nice guys, they play well and are good looking, what else could you ask for ....
The force of Sideburn, since years now, has been to have musicians that like different kinds of music, but who love Rock'n'Roll. This gives a twist to our music."
The band has planned to release a single this spring and to do some gigs till autumn to keep on promoting "Jail".
4th of December 2011
Fred Gudit, guitar player, co-founder and composer of Sideburn, has left the band in the beginning of august 2011 after a quarrel with Roland Pierrehumbert (lead singer).
Boris, guitar player and composer since 2005, has decided to leave the band at the end of september.
The relationships between members were no longer satisfying to continue.
Michel Demierre, bass player of Sideburn since 1999, has also taken this decision for the same reasons as Boris.
Fred, Boris and Michel would like to thank all the fans that have followed and supported the band during the last 20 years, for
being there at our shows and for purchasing our albums.
3rd of December 2011
The Swiss rockers Sideburn, announce that Fred (rythm guitar, composer), Boris (lead guitar, composer) & Michel (Bass) have left the band in september, but that Roland (lead vocal, composer) & Lionel (drums) have decided to keep on rockin.
The new line-up will be announced later this month.
More details about their departure will be posted on this website.
"It's always sad to have some partners & friends leaving and we know that it has been a tough call for them, we wish Fred, Michel & Boris all the best for their future.
With all the great music released those past years, the fantastic reactions received from our fans and the press worldwide, we really think that we still have much more to give. So stay tuned for some more rock'n'roll in 2012 !"
