Michael Maida, a criminology student at the University of Toronto, was the first to reply.

Happiness... Is Not a Fish That You Can Catch (written as simply Happiness... on the cover) is the third studio album by Canadian alternative rock band Our Lady Peace.

The songs on Happiness... focus on a lighter melody, often following vocalist Raine Maida's extreme range of octaves sung in a falsetto-like manner.

Touring effectively ended after Summersault as the band had announced work for a brand new studio album, Spiritual Machines which they had been working on since before the festival and which would be completed and released in Canada before the end of the year.
