Sick City Opens Call For New Vocalist

Sick City would like you to audition for them.

Sick City have announced that they will be seeking a new lead vocalist via online auditions after parting ways with Lead Vocalist Josh Youngson.

Sick City’s search for a new vocalist will begin via the posting of instrumental tracks from their 2007 release Nightlife (Trustkill/Smallman). All interested individuals should go to for the tracks and submit their vocal renditions of the posted songs to the band through the site.

Sick City is presently writing the follow up to their debut release, Nightlife, that was recorded with producers Kenneth Mount & Zach Odom (Mayday Parade, All Time Low, Cartel).  The band has shared the stage with bands such as Comeback Kid, Gob, Protest the Hero, and Papa Roach as well as played dates on both the Warped and Taste of Chaos Tours.
Sick City formed in early 2005 with Joel Neufeld (drums), Dorian Paszkowski (guitar), Dave Grabowski (guitar) and T.J Stevenson (bass).

Still Looking for that Perfect Gift?

Here’s what Vue Magazine in Edmonton has to recommend:

“For that really, really sad kid who enjoys wallowing beneath the unbearable weight of all the bad things in the world:

SICK CITY - Nightlife - I saw Sick City play in Ottawa on the dirt floor of the basement of a record store and the band had this crazy light show that some guy was operating from the side of the ‘stage’. If this band will set up that whole thing for a thirty minute set on a dirt floor for thirty kids, imagine how awesome this record is.”

UK NoiseNet Magazine Loves Sick City

A great review of the new Sick City CD - Nightlife - online now.


Sick City should be huge. At least, they could be. Right now the band are in their infancy, youngest member just 19, but if what they’ve already achieved in such a short time is anything to go by then the promise and potential here is substantial indeed.


Not everything about Sick City suggests impending eminence. The band- drummer Joel Neufeld, guitarists Dorian Paszkowski and Dave Grabowski, bassist T.J. Stevenson and frontman Josh Youngson- formed from the ashes of several other low-level acts in their local Winnipeg area and the Canadians have bizarrely toured with Papa Roach. However, from their natty threads to their infuriatingly catchy yet original tunes, everything else screams success.


Good looks and good hooks aren’t the only qualities these boys are equipped with either. They’ve got ‘Nightlife’, a debut full-length overflowing with style and confidence. They’ve built up a high-pitched buzz, plenty of online outlets and Alternative Press magazine naming Sick City a band to watch. And they’ve got great connections too- Neufeld’s brother, Comeback Kid singer Andrew, helped them secure their first shows, From Autumn To Ashes dug them enough to invite them on tour and Trustkill Records have put plenty of hard cash behind their progress. And, like all the best pop groups, there’s no labyrinthine history to swot up on here either, Sick City have packed all this stuff into the last 12 months. And yep, you heard us right, this is a pop band.


Oh sure, Sick City may have hit the road with the odd metalcore band and feature a few heavy beats and intricate, original guitar lines of their own. But this is definitely pop music. It’s the sort of stuff that tempts the fellas who’ve twiddled knobs for Jimmy Eat World to put the finishing touches to your record. It’s the sort of stuff that would have saved Top Of The Pops from the cutting room floor. And it’s just the right sound to have fans of Foo Fighters jumping out their seats, Story Of The Year supporters dancing like idiots in super-sized arenas and the MCRmy going mad.


They may not be in the same league as any of those big names just yet, for now they don’t even have the right songs for superstardom, but if the band can keep it together and keep getting better, pretty soon everyone will be singing on the streets of Sick City.
