Children 18:3 “On The Run” !May 22nd, 2012 | Cameron Bartlett
TOOTH & NAIL’S CHILDREN 18:3 SET TO RELEASE ON THE RUN JUNE 19
TOURING THIS SUMMER ON DISTOURITION 2012
Seattle, Wa –May 22, 2012 –Tooth & Nail Records’ rock trio Children 18:3 is set to release their third label project, On The Run, on June 19. The band’s current single “Moment to Moment” debuted in the Top 20 at Rock radio.
With the release of On The Run, the band has shaken up all aspects of its previous formula to embark upon an ambitious new chapter. Part of this new chapter includes teaming with producer Travis Wyrick (P.O.D., Disciple, Pillar) for the first time. On the Run emotes an entirely innovative vibe on all ends of the artistic spectrum.
“We’re really excited about these songs, and by far, we’re the happiest with this record after leaving the studio,” shares drummer Seth Hostetter. “There’s also a lot of vocal character from David and Lee Marie, who really weigh in with a lot of emotion, and there’s a lot of musical variety. Some are straight forward rock songs, others are poppier and melodic and there’s even a ballad-like slower song, which probably comes from the three of us bringing so many influences to the table.”
Sonically, the collection shares mutual reference points like Blink-182, Anberlin, August Burns Red or MyChildren MyBride, but by the end of the dozen track disc, listeners are likely to conclude Children 18:3 is truly in an anthemic class of its own. The group’s tenacious touring habits have certainly contributed to the trio’s chemistry, while working with Wyrick also helped the band tighten up and even be more efficient when it came to recording speed.
Clearly a spiritual perspective fuels Children 18:3 throughout its ongoing quest towards evolution, who despite nearing a decade together, still consider themselves a burgeoning band. However, after a single spin of On the Run, it’s clear the full-throttled rockers have certainly arrived on an elevated playing field that’s sure to escalate during their summer touring. The band will be special guests on the DisTOURtion 2012 Tour with Blessed By A Broken Heart and Write this Down along with special guest Rocky Loves Emily. This tour will begin July 13 through August.
