TOOTH & NAIL’S CHILDREN 18:3 RELEASES ON THE RUN TO MEDIA ACCLAIM

Tooth & Nail Records’ rock trio Children 18:3 receives rave reviews for their third label release, On The Run, available today. In addition to the media praise, Children 18:3’s current radio single “Moment to Moment” broke into the Top 10 on the Rock charts. Watch the album trailer here to get a taste of what fans are talking about.

This week, media outlets such as JesusFreakHideout and IndieVisionMusic are featuring this Minnesota-based rock group on their homepages as well as this week’s New Release Tuesday podcast, which you can listen to here. In addition last week, Alternative Press premiered “We’ll Never Say Goodbye” from On The Run. Children 18:3 will also be featured in CCM Magazine as well as HM Magazine. Here is what media outlets are saying about On the Run:

“Children 18:3 are three for three with one of 2012’s better rock efforts, and it still stands that no one else really brings their trademark sound to the table like this trio, remaining a Tooth & Nail distinctive in the process.”
– JesusFreakHideout
On The Run by Children 18:3 is without a doubt the top punk rock album of the year. I can’t get enough of this album, which is one of the catchiest and most hope-filled emotional rock albums I’ve ever heard.”
– New Release Tuesday
On the Run is an energizing record of palm-muted guitar and poppy, upbeat drums. The standout, “Moment to Moment,” will have no problem becoming your new guilty pleasure.”
– Seattle Weekly
On The Run – Catchy and Super-Charged”
– About.com

“They spread their proverbial wings for this release and created an album that is as unique as they are.”
– Indie Vision Music
“The band stands tall as being a band that is in a class of its own.”
– Emurg
“They have truly matured in their sound and style with this album.  Risks have been taken, and they prove to be risks worth taking.”
– Rawkzilla

Fans can catch the band performing the new tunes from On the Run as 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 August 1st through September.
About On The Run:
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.
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.

About Children 18:3:
Children 18:3 splashed onto the music scene in 2008 with their self-titled label debut, which received huge praise for the Minnesota raised band.  Seth, David and Lee Marie striked again in 2010 with the release of Rain’s A’ Comin, receiving reviews stating it was “one of the best albums of the year,” “must-have for any rock enthusiast,” and “an explosive listening experience from start to finish.” Their sophomore album landed on the Billboard Heatseakers chart. Children 18:3 has toured with Norma Jean, Haste the Day, Mychildren Mybride and Brian ‘Head’ Welch.
