Restless Habs was originally formed by Ken Blaze (The Unknown, K-ration), Peter Woodward (The Unknown, Sidecar, Dreyfus), and Noah Smit (Mustion, ON), after years of talking about playing together. A trip to a Big Drill Car reunion show was the final spark the three needed to get the project off the ground (hence the name).
The goal was to write some songs and figure out the rest of it later. The songs came quickly and several of them were recorded before taking a break to attend to other obligations. Noah moved away, and the hiatus was extended until a replacement could be found.
Enter Eric Vogt. A long-time member of various Chicago and Cleveland bands, such as Viva Caramel and Gem, Eric brought a new energy to a project that seemed destined to vanish before seeing the light of day.
The original five songs recorded with Noah were released on Boss Tuneage Records in August 2010. The "Cross Your Heart and Swear to Lie" EP was released in 2011 and the Habs are due to release a new EP in 2012.
