Malcolm In The Middle actor Frankie Muniz is set to tour the UK with his band Kingsfoil later this week (May 17).

Muniz tried his hand at being a race car driver in addition to his film and television career, but now serves as drummer for the US indie band who released their second album 'A Beating Heart Is A Bleeding Heart' in September last year and will play at the Forum in Hatfield on Friday before further dates in Guildford, Nottingham, Reading and Swansea.

The actor, who auditioned for a role in the band after his previous outfit broke up and Kingsfoil's drummer departed, told the Herts And Essex Observer that he had begun playing the drums aged 12. "I always enjoyed it and I was saying to my Dad the other day it's weird how that little toy drum kit turned into something that I now do for a living," he said. "I've never taken any lessons, I just watched people on television and at shows and tried to figure it out. I'm 180 shows in with Kingsfoil and it's only now I want to start taking lessons because I want to be the best I can possibly be."

He also claimed he would not be concerned if people only attended the gig because of his past appearances on TV, stating: "Malcolm In The Middle was shown [in the UK], so even if people haven't heard our music but come for that reason that's fine because it helps out get our music to new people."

Muniz played the main role in Malcolm In The Middle from 2000-2006, and also starred in films including Agent Cody Banks and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.
