Alternative Sydney rockers, With Confidence, have just finished touring in support of their recently released EP ‘Distance’.
Released on January 13 2015, ‘Distance’ is their sophomore EP from 2013’s ‘Youth’ EP. It was recorded at Electric Sun Studios with Stevie Knight and Dave Petrovic (Tonight Alive, Hands Like Houses, Northlane) at the helm.
The response by the fans has been overwhelming with the EP rocketing to number two on the iTunes Alternative charts and number ten on the overall iTunes albums chart. "Honestly, fans always surprise us with their support and we didn't expect to push that high in the charts,” says lead vocalist and bassist Jayden Seeley. "We’re forever grateful for everyone that lends us their ears and supports our music”.
The four-piece’s popularity is a product of solid touring and hard work over the past twelve months supporting the likes of You Me At Six, Tonight Alive, Kids In Glass Houses, Neck Deep and more recently, Marianas Trench. The constant touring has also heavily influenced the band’s maturity in their song writing which is evident on ‘Distance’.
"The theme of the EP is that of Distance, both emotional and physical, and we've tried to keep it consistent throughout the whole record,” says Jayden.
The ‘Distance’ tour saw the band return to Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne – their first headlining tour since their sold out April 2013 "I Will Never Wait” run.
