Bio

Formed in October 2004, members Daniel (lead vocals, guitar), former member Adam (bass, vocals), Patrick (drums, vocals) and former member Austin Jenkins (guitar, vocals) set out to create a style of music without boundaries or limitations. Pooling limited resources and minuscule funds, the group recorded their debut album (originally titled Guerrilla EP) The Frames EP. The original name was derived from the do-it-your-self methods the band undertook; recording all instrumental tracks in a rehearsal space with bassist Adam's laptop, the band was limited to 3 microphones for the drums. After the initial recording, the guys moved to friend Matt Dyson's bedroom for vocals and the mixing process. Individual tracks of the EP are placed in a specific order in that all of the songs are bound by a common fictional individual, but it is not the band's intention for Frames to be a "concept" album. It should instead be viewed as a social commentary of modern society. Decadent lifestyle, moral values and the difficulty of Choice are central ideas as our character lives, dies and descends into hellish afterlife.
In 2005, bassist Adam had to make the difficult choice to move back home to Canada. Since then kid:nap:kin has been continuously searching for a replacement bass player. The new lineup with Jamilla as bassist is still in negotiation but Daniel and Patrick are hopefull that she will not be a fill-in but a permenant replacement for Adam.
