I started playing guitar when I was 15 years old. Soon after I started my first band Purest of Pain. Modern metal with a Scandinavian sound. After two years we started playing bigger shows with (inter)national bands like Suicide Silence, Unearth, MaYaN, Grave, All Shall Perish, Delain and many more.
In April 2011 we released the first EP ‘Revelations in Obscurity’, November 2013 we released the single ‘Momentum’ and in 2014 we played at the world’s biggest metal festival ‘Wacken Open Air’ in Germany. Winter 2018 we are going to release the first album. Thanks to Purest of Pain my career as a musician/guitar player started.

Childers brings a sense of intimacy to the stage. This could be in part to his approach to songwriting, which is also quite refreshing. It’s honest, it’s clever, and at times, heartbreaking. Still, it’s not reserved for a 23 year-old learning how to live and love in the 21st century. The maturity shown in the subject matter and motifs relate to anyone who has ever known what it’s like to have and have-not.
Andre started playing the guitar in 1980. After a period of 4 years practicing and guitarlessons and a few local bands he started playing in The Hague with a band called Lost Gravity. He did a tour through Holland as support act for Picture and soon after he was asked as second guitarist in Picture. In 1986 he started playing in Germane for a period of 6 years. Then in the nineties he recorded a few cd's with an acoustic band called Het Ampzing Genootschap. He did several theatretours with this band. Early 2000 he picked up the heavier sound again with Purplex from Haarlem and recorded a few EP's. Then the tributeband virus caught him and he played respectively in a Bonjovi, a Within Temptation, a Thin Lizzy and a Heart tribute band. Andre is now still playing in KissLicks, a Kiss tribute and So Heart, a Heart tribute band.
