Confidence Man have shared details of their new album ‘Tilt’ alongside the release of new song ‘Holiday’.

The Australian band’s follow-up to their 2018 debut album ‘Confident Music For Confident People’ is out on April 1, 2022 via Heavenly Recordings. Pre order it here.

“We’ve been trying for the most epic, hands up, euphoric anthem for a while and this is the first time we’ve come close…turns out it’s pretty difficult, but nothing’s too hard for Con Man,” Confidence Man‘s Sugar Bones said in a statement.

“No one tells Confidence Man what to do. Who said a Holiday can’t last forever? Spend big and live free, that’s our motto. And it can be yours too. A vacation is just sunburn at premium prices but a holiday is a state of mind,” added bandmember Janet Planet.

Speaking to NME in 2018, Confidence Man described their band as being “completely different.”

They said: “It’s so different – we were all in indie-rock bands and psych-rock bands and stuff like that. What we wanted to do was create a band that was dance music, but a bit ramshackle in a way, because we’re all from guitar backgrounds – so it’s indie-rock people making dance-pop music. It’s a bit weird, I think that’s why it works.

“We aren’t within the same rules as a normal dance band because we actually have no idea what the fuck we’re doing with dance music. Things have turned out well because I think people can see the messiness of it, and see that in the live show as well. It’s kind of punk-y.”
