MR HAPPY CHAINSAW: STIHL ON THE BALL!
Essex pop-punk legends MR HAPPY CHAINSAW return next month with a brand new EP.
Originally coming together in 2004, the band built up a huge following, sharing stages with the likes of THE VIBRATORS, UK SUBS, ENTER SHIKARI, MADNESS and NEW TOWN KINGS. Having imploded in 2009, the band announced their return last summer.
Coming eight years after their last EP, We Appear To Be On Fire, the 5-track It’s Not My Ball features three new songs, including the lead-off single ‘Standing There’, plus complete reworkings of the classics ‘Charlie’ and ‘Your Best Friend’.
Check out the lyric video for ‘Standing There’.
