Check out some of my colleagues' thoughts about the coming TV season. (I put the video at the top of this post but right now it's after the jump. Oh, how I miss our old blogging system.) If nothing else, their remarks made me realize how many bad pilots I had managed to erase from memory. Of course, I will have to dredge them up for my fall preview package in September.
Ever wonder what Frankie Muniz of "Malcolm in the Middle" is up to? Well, somebody might. And the answer is that, besides acting, he's playing drums. From an official word:
Indie rock band KINGSFOIL have released the first single from their upcoming album, A BEATING HEART IS A BLEEDING HEART. The album will be released on September 25th via the band's own label, Holiday Heart Records. The single, titled "What Your Mother Taught You," can be heard here: http://snd.sc/RavsYs
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.
