habit-to02bw-PRESSHABIT TO are currently in studio working on their third full length album. The recent success of their second album, ‘Boomerang Saturn demands an increasingly busy touring schedule for the band. With 66 national show dates under their belts over the months of 2012, they have been burning up the tarmac and stages of South Africa.

HABIT TO is rocking hard, tighter than ever and hungry to record and divulge the new music they’ve been brewing behind the scenes.

These three musos come together in one harmonious blend of New Age Rock. Having studied music at tertiary level, HABIT TO synchronise a thought process that digs deeper than the basics of song writing.

Formed in 2003, HABIT TO have built up a strong following not only in Durban, but around the country, winning over new fans with every gig. The band has also performed at most major festivals and shared stages with the likes of Prime Circle, The Parlotones, Goldfish, Fokofpolisiekar, Springbok Nude Girls and many many more.

In 2006 they won the Durban Burn the Bands competition, which awarded them the studio time and funding they needed to produce their debut album, ‘Secrets to a Triangle’. This achievement also gained them huge popularity and opened up many opportunities. The single ‘Cast in Stone’ received extensive radio airplay, while the music video for ‘Gratitude’ was put into rotation on Go TV, MK and MTV Base!

Following on the success of the previous album, HABIT TO unleashed their second album ‘Boomerang Saturn’ in 2011. The music video for the albums first single ‘R10.40’ hit frequent broadcasting into daytime TV screens nation wide on MK and was play listed on various radio stations! The band was also able to celebrate the music video hitting #3 on the charts for Guitar TV (USA) during the month of September 2012. Other familiar singles from the album ‘Boomerang Saturn’ that continue to be heard on various radio stations locally and internationally include: ‘Movin’, ‘Knuckle Down’, ‘That Moment’ and ‘Space’.

In response to the bands’ success with their ever-growing popularity, HABIT TO signed up with Sheer Publishing, which has boosted the group to new horizons.
