Born before the Sun is the new album from Altiyan Childs, and Bendigo is on his touring warpath with a date set for Music Man on February 11, 2016. As you may well recall, Childs won the second season of The X Factor Australia in 2010. His self-titled debut would become a hit.
Following that, the smooth sailing hit rougher waters. At the beginning of 2012, Childs was found guilty to having methamphetamine and marijuana in his system following an incident in November 2011. There was also the falling out with former mentor Ronan Keating, as well as a departure from Sony Music Australia. Still, you don’t come this far without being able to take (and give) a few punches.
