The band’s newest member is former “Malcolm in the Middle” star Frankie Muniz, a self-taught drummer who joined the group earlier this year. Muniz was a longtime fan of the band, having learned about them from the manager they shared. When the opportunity arose to audition, he jumped at the chance. The Central Pennsylvania-based band was founded by longtime friends Jordan Davis (vocals,guitar) and Tristan Martin(guitar, keyboards). The band released their debut album in 2010 and have shared stages with artists such as Passion Pit, Anberlin and The Ting Tings,among others. The group (rounded out by bassist Tim Warren) just finished a 30-city tour and are about to announce a series of new tour dates.
Per the Hollywood Reporter, 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’tgo,” 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 goodenough.” 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 firstsingle, “What Your Mother Taught You,” above.
