Many students will remember Kingsfoil, the opening band from last year’s spring concert. The group features Jordan Davis, Tristan Martin, Tim Warren and former film star turned drummer Frankie Muniz. Muniz drew a lot of attention from “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Agent Cody Banks” fans, but Kingsfoil is much more than just Muniz. They have a unique sound that has been compared to the styles of One Republic, The Fray, and Coldplay. Their performance at Thomas Fieldhouse in April was met with deafening applause.
For those who have not heard of Kingsfoil, here’s the lowdown: the band is from York, PA and describe themselves as “indie pop-rock.” Their first extended play – which is a collection of music that isn’t long enough to be a solo album – was released in 2007. The band hit it big in the summer of 2010, before Muniz joined, with their first full album, “On Our Own Together.” They appeared at LHU in April with Third Eye Blind, and did a mini-tour of the U.S. over the summer.
The band’s new album, “A Beating Heart is a Bleeding Heart,” officially dropped on Tuesday and is comprised of singles such as “American Veins”, “Grapevine Valentine”, and “Hope is Still on the Prowl”. In light of the new album, the band will be having an album release party on Saturday, September 29, at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster.
