Come See Indie Pop Band Kingsfoil at High Octane Lounge on October 2!

| 25 September 2012 | Reply

The band recently released a video for their new single, “What Your Mother Taught You,” directed by their drummer Frankie Muniz (yes, THAT Frankie Muniz from “Malcolm in the Middle”), which you can see here:

Formed by vocalist Jordan Davis and guitarist Tristan Martin, the Central PA-based Kingsfoil released debut album ON OUR OWN TOGETHER in 2010 and honed their chops playing every hole-in-the-wall up and down the east coast. Over the course of the past few years, they’ve shared stages with bands like the Goo Goo Dolls, STP, Passion Pit, Neon Trees, Parachute, and more. Muniz, whose old band and Kingsfoil shared the same manager, joined the group earlier this year, then embarked on a 30-date tour.

They’re supporting the Sept 25 release of new album A Beating Heart Is A Bleeding Heart with a new tour that launches tomorrow in Delaware and runs through late October.

It’s been more than six years since Malcolm in the Middle went off the air, and some of the cast members have undergone pretty big transformations: Patriarch Bryan Cranston, of course, transitioned from playing the goofy dad to portraying a fearsome teacher-turned-drug lord on Breaking Bad.

And Frankie Muniz? He’s now a rock star. Now 26, Muniz spends most of his time playing drums for Kingsfoil, an indie pop band out of Pennsylvania. The foursome releases its sophomore record Sept. 25, and has already performed alongside indie acts like Passion Pit, The Ting Tings and Anberlin.

Though Muniz is now mostly focused on music (he’ll tour with the group soon), he still pops up on the small screen from time to time: Look for him on an episode of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23 next season.

Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz still has acting on the brain (he just shot a guest spot for an upcoming episode of ABC’s Don’t Trust The B—- in Apt 23), but tugging at his heart these days is music.

The 26-year-old self-taught drummer is the newest member of KINGSFOIL, a pop-rock band from Central Penn. founded by longtime friends Jordan Davis (vocals, guitar) and Tristan Martin (guitar, keyboards). They’ve been on the indie scene since 2007 when they released their debut EP Bear in the Attic and opened for such artists as Anberlin and The Ting Tings.

What’s their connection to Muniz, who was born in New Jersey and lives in Arizona? He was a fan, after hearing of the band through the manager they shared, and saw opportunity when KINGSFOIL had a vacancy at the riser.

“I almost didn’t go,” says Muniz of his first audition. “I was a little intimidated because I was such a fan of their music. I thought I wasn’t good enough.”

Not only did he get the gig, he then had just four days to learn their set and open for Passion Pit.

Since that fateful night, the band has tightened thanks to a 30-date tour and time spent in the studio — and are hookier for it.

KINGSFOIL will release their second album (but first with Muniz), A Beating Heart is a Bleeding Heart, on Sept. 25 via their own label, Holiday Heart Records. Listen to their instantly hummable nineties-esque first single, “What Your Mother Taught You,” above.
