Background and composition[edit]

The band released a couple of teasers of the song via their YouTube channel prior to the release of the single.[3]

"Haven't Had Enough" is primarily a pop song, with additional influences of pop rock guitars and 80's funk.[4] It was written and produced solely by Marianas Trench lead singer Josh Ramsay. The Magazine called the song "somewhat different" from their previous material, but noted that it still has a distinctive "Marianas Trench feel".[5]

Music video[edit]

A music video for the song was filmed on July 20 in Burnaby, British Columbia.[6] A teaser for the video was released on August 8, 2011.[7] The music video premiered on MuchMusic on August 25, 2011 and was uploaded to the band's official Vevo channel the next day on August 26.[8] Directed by Kyle Davison, it is the first chapter in a five-video storyline accompanying the album's backstory, and is followed by "Fallout".[9]

"Haven't Had Enough" reached #1 on the iTunes download chart in Canada.[citation needed] The song debuted on the Canadian Hot 100 at #9 for the week of August 6, 2011, the highest debut by Marianas Trench song as well as the band's first top ten hit on the chart.[10] It was also a radio hit, reaching a peak of 24 and 13, respectively, on the Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems Canada CHR and Hot AC surveys.
