The Reign of Kindo - Band HistoryThe Reign of Kindo hail from Buffalo, New York and began in 2006, forming from the ashes of popular indie rock band This Day and Age. Their first release was a self-titled EP in 2007, which made a major impact in terms of helping This Day and Age fans transition to The Reign of Kindo, as well as helped garner many new listeners. The album peaked at number 5 on Billboard's Middle Atlantic Heatseekers chart. In 2008, the band released Rhythm, Chord and Melody via One Eleven Records to generally positive reception from critics. The album did not help the band win new audiences as much as it helped existing fans reaffirm their commitment (many consider the self-titled EP the better release). Later that year, they parted ways with One Eleven Records and signed to Candy Rat Records. In 2010, they released This Is What Happens to once again generally positive reception. Unfortunately, pianist Kelly Sciandra left the band after the release. Of note is the fact that it is somewhat rare for The Reign of Kindo to play a live show, so make sure to get your The Reign of Kindo tickets while you can to avoid missing this special band in concert.
The Reign of Kindo - The MusicThe Reign of Kindo play a style of jazz-infused pop/rock indie rock that requires top-notch musicianship to pull off. Every instrument plays a vital, intricate role on each album, making their music a gorgeous listen. This Is What Happens is an excellent place to start for new listeners, as it displays the band at their most breathtaking.
