12/12/2008 - Children 18:3 Celebrate a Great Debut Year of Touring, Radio, Press and Fans
Seattle, WA...December 12, 2008...After a year of rave reviews and live show acclaim, Minnesota's Children 18:3 is celebrating a successful debut year on Tooth & Nail Records. The band released their self-titled label debut on February 26, 2008. Since the release the band has been successful with touring, radio, press and fans.
This past spring Children 18:3 began their year of relentlessly touring beginning with the 5for5 tour, followed by summer festivals and this fall on the road with Norma Jean on the "Solid State presents: The Norma Jean vs The Anti Mother Tour." Radio has jumped on board with this new band as both Rock singles released ("You Know We're All So Fond Of Dying" and "All My Balloons") have hit the top spot at No. 1, and the new single ("Homemade Valentine") is climbing the chart as "New and Active." In addition, Children 18:3 has been confirmed as a favorite amongst fans and editors on multiple end of the year polls.
On ChristianMusicToday.com, the band garnered a spot on the coveted "Best Christian Albums of 2008" saying this is a "faith-based band that has helped reinvigorate the (punk-rock) genre." Also the readers on ChristianMusicToday.com voted Children in the Top 5 of the "Best Group or Band," "Best New Artist," and "Best Album" categories. HM Magazine readers also made their voice heard voting the band as "Favorite New Band of 2008" and Lee Marie was voted in the No. 4 as "Favorite Bassist."
As the debut album made its way into fans' hands, press began chatting about the album. Reviews stated that the self-titled album "makes punk rock interesting again" and "this band was something special." Other reviews shared that "few can compare to the life, luster and liveliness in Minneapolis' Children 18:3" and lastly they said "hello to the best surprise you've gotten in years."
The trio of siblings on Tooth&Nail Records hails from a rural farming community in Minnesota where the three home-schooled siblings developed their undeniable rock sound. Children 18:3 is comprised of siblings David (lead vocals, songwriter, guitar), Seth (drums) and Lee Marie (bass, vocals). The combination of male and female vocals along with their unmatched determination is a throw back to the beginnings of Tooth&Nail punk and rock n' roll. The band name is derived from Matthew 18:3, "And he said: 'I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.'"
