About

Make You Happy

In 2005, the band released their seventh studio album Truth & Lies, the similarly rousing follow up to Green Blade Rising. The album, released on Eagle Records, catches the band in an upbeat mood, highlighted by the singles Make You Happy and Last Man Alive. Mark Wallis returned as the Levellers' producer, with Dave Ruffy, drummer with UK punk band, The Ruts, also contributing at the controls. 

Following the previous year's acoustic live work, 2005 saw the Levellers tour extensively around the UK and Europe, though this time enjoying being a fully fledged electric band once again, continuing throughout 2006. 

Festival success continued and in 2005 when the band set another stagefront audience record at Glastonbury Festival, by attracting the largest ever crowd attendance on the Jazzworld Stage. Chaos Theory live DVD was released in December 2006. The 2 disc set features a full electric live show from Reading Hexagon and an additional disc of bonus footage including the 1993 tour diary / concert Part Time Punks, an acoustic gig at Buxton Opera house and many more. 

In the spring of 2007, the Levellers went on an electric tour, visiting Scandinavia, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK and Ireland. The intensive touring schedule continued with the band playing a number of nearly 30 festival appearances throughout the summer, including Wychwood, Le Mans 24 Hour and Rock Ness.



During this time, the bands' five Warner-era studio albums were remixed, given new packaging and re-issued on the Rhino label.
