In a decently produced and lengthy video, the siblings in Children 18:3 let everyone know they were releasing their first post-Tooth & Nail release, but that it would also be their swan song as a group.

This is going to be the last Children 18:3 record.

Those were (effectively) the first words of the announcement, spoken by guitarist and vocalist Dave Hostetter, Jr. Note the specific emphasis on “last.” I was wondering how Seth and Dave were going to make Children 18:3 work with Lessons, but that answers that question. It appears Children 18:3 will be hanging up the guitar straps. So while Lessons may account for Seth and Dave, it still leaves one incredibly talented bass player unaccounted for…
