Chubby and The Gang share new three-track EP, ‘Labour Of Love’

Along with a new music video for ‘Who Loves Ya? (Coup d’état)’

London punks Chubby and The Gang have shared a new three-track EP, ‘Labour Of Love’.

The EP arrived on all major streaming platforms on Monday (February 14), alongside a fresh music video for the project’s lead single, ‘Who Loves Ya? (Coup d’état)’.

The ‘Labour Of Love’ EP is rounded out by ‘Twice Shy’, a punchy track about being hurt by love and now being skeptical of all relationships, and ‘Ain’t There No One?’, which chronicles the search for someone to “fix a lonely heart”.

The music video for ‘Who Loves Ya? (Coup d’état)’ was filmed and edited by the band’s tour manager during their recent run of shows supporting Turnstile, per a press release.

Released on Valentine’s Day, ‘Who Loves Ya (Coup d’état)’ aims to spotlight “all the angles of love. Warts and all,” according to frontman Charlie Manning Walker. “Quite often it’s not such a smooth experience. Can often feel scary and insane. So I wanted to write a bubblegum song about it but show the duality of the emotion.” Watch the video below.

‘Labour Of Love’ follows the band’s August 2021 sophomore album, ‘The Mutt’s Nuts’. The album scored a four-star rating from NME’s Max Pilley, who wrote that the album “expands the boundaries of what Chubby and the Gang are looking to achieve, but they’re not about to forget where they came from”.
