"Gauntlet U of C Paper"

With the release of Joshua's Habit's first CD, Images of Energy, Calgary can be proud of a hometown band with real talent. Joshua's Habit is a cold rock band that has it all: good chords, solid riffs, strong lyrics and a singer with a voice.

Although the band is less than a year old, it has a polished, smooth sound that's rare to find. This sound brings to mind the oxymoron of "cold fire"--the pace of the songs are a bit slow for rock, yet they have an essence of electricity that crackles beneath them. It's the kind of music that fits whatever mood the listener's in.

With lyrics like "keep on playing for the love of playing, maybe someday it won't be overrated," in their track "Cobain and Fame," Joshua's Habit exhibit exceptional maturity about the business. Their lyrics show that they have grown up watching the rock culture and understand exactly how exploitive the industry can be.

Yet perhaps the best thing about this band is that while their songs are easy on the ears, they are not repetitive. They avoid the all-too-common style of having choruses dominate numbers and destroy any meaning a song may have.

A new band that has already played such venues as our own Den, Joshua's Habit is a group on the way up-----a group that has the talent and the promotion skills to take themselves to the top and the depth and understanding to never sell out - Anna Leung and Joanna Farley

Bio

It has been a wild ride for the Canadian boys of Joshuas Habit. In the less than 2 years that the band has been together, they have released a 3 song EP, a 14 track full album entitled
‘Images of Energy’ which they have sold well over 1500 copies independently, and an 11 track acoustic album . They have received commercial radio play on a regular basis on a number of Canadian FM stations. They have toured all of Alberta, the BC interior and showcased in Toronto for Canadian Music Week 2003, all the while building an ever growing contingent of loyal ‘Habit’ fans. A wild ride indeed; and the journey has only begun.

Joshua’s Habit has put their heart and soul into a second full album entitled ‘Contents Highly Addictive’. This explosive disk showcases the raw emotion and power influenced by the sheer energy of their live performances. It’s an album about life, changes, motivation, and good old school 'Rawk' and Roll. The album is melodic, diverse, and hook driven. Todd Kerns (Age of Electric front man) produced the 1st single entitled 'Flipside' which showcases all of the above.

Joshua’s Habit continues to give it all on their road to stardom. The members of Joshua’s Habit all share a common goal. That is to write ‘Good’ songs and perform them live with explosive energy and emotion. With the new release ‘Contents Highly Addictive’ due out in late January 2004, Joshua’s Habit plans to push the envelope and take this band to a brand new level. They are prepared to expose their truly original music and highly energized show not only to this great Canadian nation, but to the entire world.
