Confidence Man head to Perth with Confident Music

Confidence Man have raised the bar in revealing the scandal-filled video to their current single Don’t You Know I’m In A Band. Filmed with frequent collaborators, Berlin-based production duo Schall and Schnabel, the video shows juicy magazine headlines with scandalous stories about the band, with Sugar going solo and Janet ending up as a Wall Street mogul. Confident Music for Confident People is this week’s Feature Album on triple j and will be released independently on 13 April.

Following the album release Confidence Man will be heading around the country with a coveted spot on the Groovin the Moo tour, before playing their biggest headline tour to date. Joining the band as the  support for all album tour dates is The Lex Deluxe Dance Hall featuring the Mystery Twins, a dance party within a dance party.  Ticket holders are encouraged to get down early to attend their only club performances of 2018.

Confident Music for Confident People sets eleven tales of 21st century ennui to irresistible, irrepressible dance music. The opening lines of Try Your Luck (“I must confess/I’ve been sleeping with your ex/’Cos I heard he was the best/I must confess/I never would have guessed he would get so obsessed… I’m not surprised”) set the tone perfectly for what follows. Here are a set of songs that take the kind of all-consuming interior monologues that bored, disaffected youth are wrestling with the globe over and places them square in the middle of a rave.

A portable party that’s leveled dance floors and flattened festival crowds as it’s rolled out across the world, Confidence Man are a machine custom designed to make you dance and lose your cool. The Australian tour shows join a packed Northern Summer of festival spots including All Points East (London), Primavera Sound (Barcelona), Governors Ball (New York), and Parklife (Manchester).

It’s been a whirlwind 18 months for Confidence Man following a 2017 triple j unearthed J Award nomination, two sold out headline Australian East Coast tours and three trips to UK/Europe for headline shows and festivals. Theirs was one of the most talked about sets at Splendour in the Grass, they had mammoth performances at Glastonbury, set punters abuzz at The Great Escape, completed a run with Falls Festival and took home the boot from Golden Plains. Earlier releases Better Sit Down Boy, Bubblegum and Boyfriend (Repeat) have amassed over three million Spotify streams collectively and secured remixes by a roll call of respected electronic names including Jono Ma, Andrew Weatherall, and Lindstrom and Prins Thomas.

Confident Music for Confident People
 is big and brash and bright as hell and you won’t want to miss out on seeing it live as it tours the globe this year.

Confidence Man will be at Capitol on Friday May 11th and in Bunbury for Groovin The Moo on Saturday May 12th
