With their debut album Confident Music for Confident People now released, and glowing reviews coming from media around the globe, today Confidence Man release a single ‘Out The Window’. The single comes on the eve of the start of their album tour and follows the first weekend of shows as part of the Groovin the Moo tour which saw them debut authentically confident costumes and dynamic lighting.

In ‘Out The Window’ the band reluctantly emerge blinking into the bleachy sunlight from a darkened house party while a driving Balaeric backing track rolls out behind them. It’s a track that has been described as “Madchester baggy bounce” (NME) and “the real highlight of the album” (Purple Sneakers).

Released on 13 April, Confident Music for Confident People sets eleven tales of 21st century ennui to irresistible, irrepressible dance music and was picked up as a Feature Album on triple j, BBC Radio 1 Huw Stephens Album of the Week, BBC Radio 6 Album of the Day, featured on Triple R’s Soundscape and Album of the Week on Rabbit Radio.

This Friday sees the first show of their biggest headline tour to date and it’s in their hometown Brisbane. 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 each show to attend the party of the year.

A portable party that’s levelled 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).

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.
