Initially formed as a ska band in 1999, Christian punkrock band Children 18:3 eventually found their sound in 2001 when they switched from a five-piece to a pop-leaning power trio made up of siblings David, Lee Marie, and Seth Hostetter. As a newly formed three-piece, Children 18:3 found their sound playing around their home state of Minnesota.
In 2008, the band signed on with Tooth & Nail, which released the trio’s self-titled full-length that same year. Continuing to build a buzz in the Christian music community, the band toured with Norma Jean and Haste the Day before releasing its sophomore effort, Rain’s ‘a Comin’, in 2010.
“Being Christians is really our identity and it’s who we are,” asserts Seth. “Bottom line, that’s what’s important and we want to do the best we can with the platform we’ve been given to inspire people and bring them to the Lord.”
