The Reign of Kindo is a band originating from Buffalo, New York, currently based out of New York City and signed to Candyrat Records.[1]

History[edit]

The band formed in late 2006 from the remaining members of This Day & Age.[2]

On August 21, 2007, the band released their first record, an EP entitled simply "The Reign of Kindo EP".[3] The EP was a regional sales success, reaching No. 5 on the Billboard Middle Atlantic Heatseekers chart.[4] In 2008, they began recording for their first full-length record, entitled "Rhythm, Chord & Melody" and released it through 111 Records on August 19, 2008.[5][6][7]

On December 30, 2009, Candyrat Records released the first YouTube video of The Reign of Kindo performing the song "Just Wait." Within the first 24-hour period, it was one of the most highly rated and commented videos among YouTube's music category of videos. More live studio videos followed, eventually becoming a staple and integral part of the band's musical output.

On April 28, 2010, the band officially confirmed their third record, an LP titled "This Is What Happens". It was released through Candyrat Records on August 3, 2010.[8] The album was re-created in an 8-bit/Chiptune style by members Mike Carroll and Steven Padin, and released as "This Is Also What Happens" in the same year.

On July 30, 2013, the band released their 4th album, titled "Play With Fire", with its 8-bit/Chiptune counterpart simply entitled "Play".

Style[edit]

According to the band's Facebook page, the members describe themselves simply as, "makers of music".[9] Though most easily labeled as a branch of Indie Rock, their style is altogether jazzier than most in the genre, "mixing complex jazz harmonies and dissonances"[10] with a Pop music and Latin influence.
