''We wanted to release a live video because Habitants is a true live act. We really try to present a sonic adventure and take the audience with us. We are such perfectionists we make our own amplifiers and effects to achieve the exact sound we wish to create'', - René Rutten.

Habitants are currently finishing a Dutch clubtour with 3 dates left:

17-05   Zwolle - Hedon Zwolle  30-05   Amsterdam - Paradiso 11-10   Eindhoven - Effenaar/Altstadt
