Paintsville, Ky., native Childers is dropping a Sturgill Simpson-produced (Hickman Holler/Thirty Tigers) record, "Purgatory," on Friday, Aug. 4. This video, shot by Huntington's Brainwrap Productions, is one of the songs on the album.

That record, "Purgatory," has 10 original Childers songs, including newer songs as well as a handful of sing-along instant classics like "Feathered Indians," "Whitehouse Road," "Honky Tonk Flame" and "Lady May" that go back a few years.

Fresh back from a short jaunt to Europe, Childers, and his Huntington-based band The Food Stamps are now touring to California and back. The next local date will be Saturday, Sept. 2 at Huntington Music and Arts Festival.
