Muniz returns

19 September 2012 By Megan Flannery, Arts and Life Editor No Comments

A lot has changed for Frankie Muniz in the past two years since he last performed at Towson in 2010.

He’s 26 years old, engaged and he’s joined a new band – Kingsfoil.

Kingsfoil will be open Third Eye Blind at the Homecoming Concert on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Towson Center.

The last time Muniz performed at Towson was in August 2010 at the Welcome Concert with his previous band “You Hang Up.” It was his band’s first performance outside of his home state of Arizona.

Then in February 2012, Muniz joined Kingsfoil, an indie-pop rock band from Pennsylvania that was formed in 2007. Muniz is their drummer.

“I was a huge fan of Kingsfoil before I joined the band. I loved the music, it was exactly what I liked to listen to,” Muniz said.  “So to be a part of it is really exciting. I’m still a huge fan even though I’m a full blown member.”

Muniz said Kingsfoil has opened for Third Eye Blind before and is looking forward to performing with them again, as they have been long-time fans of the band.

“The last time [we performed at Towson] it was just us, my band,” Muniz said. “Now we’re getting to open for a band like Third Eye Blind, which [was] one of our favorite bands growing up. We’ve played with them a couple times before so it’s going to be a cool experience to see them again and play with them.”

At the concert Muniz said he is also looking forward to playing some new music off Kingsfoil’s upcoming album “A Beating Heart is a Bleeding Heart.” The album will be released two days after the concert Tuesday, Sept. 25.

“We’ve been working the last couple weeks trying to get all the new songs down tight and we’ll be debuting a few of the songs live at the show at Towson,” Muniz said. “It should be fun. We also love playing the old record on our own together, which is available now, and so we’ll be playing our favorites from that as well.”
