Happyness return to tour with The Dandy Warhols and share new track SB’s Truck ahead of recording album two

This May, Happyness take a break from writing new material in advance of recording their highly anticipated second album for Moshi Moshi/PIAS (and follow-up to the acclaimed 2014 debut Weird Little Birthday) as The Dandy Warhols take them out on tour across the EU and UK. Not only that, the band return with their first taste of new music in 2016, in the shape of new song SB’s Truck. In their own words, the track “has something to do with [the late, famed, 80s wrestler and actor] André The Giant as a teenager having to be taken to school in Samuel Beckett’s truck because he couldn’t fit in his dad’s car.”

As for touring with The Dandy Warhols, Happyness say; “We’re bringing a friend of ours along to play some of the parts that we can’t play with just three people. We’ll be playing a few songs from the first record that we haven’t been able to play before, and some of the same songs a little different to how people have heard them, and some new ones. So we’re going backwards and forwards in time, and we’re excited to do it. And our friend’s name is Paul. And thanks to The Dandy Warhols for having us on tour with them!”
