From Wetherspoons dining to on stage antics, With Confidence certainly enjoyed their debut UK visit.
With Confidence made their festival debut at Slam Dunk following their UK tour dates with As It Is.
Venturing overseas for the first time for any band can seem like a daunting prospect, but the guys are taking it all in their stride and embraced British culture along the way.
Following our chat with the guys backstage, we played a quick game of 54321 with drummer Josh Brozzesi and guitarist and vocalist Inigo Del Carmen to find out about their shows on the road and their UK visit.
