Thousand Frames Talks of New Singles, Show Plans and More!

Metalcore band THOUSAND FRAMES have their debut single, with a couple of other single's coming out soon enough. They just did a show recently, with plans of doing more shows, releasing way more music and much more to come.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members. 

Kyle and I go way back to middle school, where our friendship began. In 2006, we even started our first band together, a little gem called Fade to Grey. Unfortunately, Kyle's family made the big move back to Minnesota in 2007, his hometown, and that marked the end of our Fade to Grey days.

During that period, I jammed with various garage bands in high school, and then, when I hit college, I hopped on board with a cover band. Meanwhile, Kyle pursued his musical journey by drumming for bands like Crashing Daylight and Forever Waiting. But here's the kicker – despite the miles between us, we managed to stay tight and keep our friendship rock-solid.

Our paths took an interesting twist when Kyle decided to move back to Colorado in December 2012, where his then-girlfriend (now wife) was. It couldn't have been better timing because my cover band was calling it quits around the same time. Kyle sent me a demo of one of our songs, "Tighten Your Wings," and bam! It hit me like a lightning bolt; I knew I had to be in a band with him.

Now, when it comes to drummers, we've had a bit of a revolving door situation. But lucky us, we stumbled upon our current drummer, Ryan Smith, through a Facebook post. This guy is a musical wizard, and his knowledge spans all corners of the music world. It's like he was custom-made for our band.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name? 

Believe it or not, our band name Thousand Frames came from a totally random band name generator. Kyle and I thought "Thousand Frames" had a cool ring to it, so we decided to roll with it. Over time, we've kind of built up a backstory for it, you know, that everyone goes through different "frames" or phases in their life. So, we've given the name a bit of a deeper meaning.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend? 

We're based in Denver, Colorado, and to be honest, the music scene here is quite the eclectic mix. You've got indie, folk, and hip hop/rap pretty much running the show. As a hard rock/metalcore band, breaking through and getting noticed can be a bit of a challenge. But when you do stand out, you really make an impact.

We've got some personal favorites in the scene, bands that we think are seriously kick-ass. Check out Wake Me, Project Vela, Ipecac, Suitable Miss, and In the Variant - they're all on our radar.

4. How would you describe your style? 

We've definitely leaned more towards the metalcore side of things. But if you're into bands like Starset, RED, Breaking Benjamin, and you sprinkle in a bit of Bring Me the Horizon and Siamese, well, then we're right up your alley.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works? 

Up until now, our first single in four years has been "Done Blaming Myself." This track is like the grand entrance to the new Thousand Frames era. It was super cool collaborating with Mirza Radonjica from Siamese on this one; his input really pushed us to make this song as impactful as it could be.

6. Do you have any new music in the works? 

Yep, we have another new single coming out next month and another in late November of this year.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out? 

We just did a show at The Bluebird Theater in Denver opening for Delain and Visions of Atlantis. Other than that, no other shows as of yet.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band? 

Our top priority right now is to pack The Bluebird Theater next year to the brim for our album release headline show. We believe that's the first big step toward putting us on the radar as a local band aiming for the regional and national spotlight. Once we’ve done that, our next mission is to snag spots at some major festivals and open for those big-name acts.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff? 

Spotify, Amazon. Apple Music, YouTube, etc. We are rearranging our online store as we speak.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time? 

I know it might sound a bit cliché, but honestly, what we're after is a deep connection between our music and our listeners. We want our songs to whisk you away on a journey, whatever that particular track is all about.
