Mike Frampton, lead vocalist, and Brian Andreason, lead guitarist for Leadfoot at Porchfest, in Rochester NH last Sunday.

CC Bissett caught up with Leadfoot's Mike Frampton, who spoke about his return to music following the demise of his former band Bang N Jane which stopped performing after the tragic death of drummer Jim Unfonak in January 2017.

"It was rough for me when Jimmy got killed. I really lost my heart to play any more music and I really didn't even care if I did play anymore.

"Then my friend Bob Boucher called me and asked me to do a benefit for their singer from Fallen, he had a brain tumor. I got together with them just to do a couple of songs and we ended up jamming for 8-9 months and did some shows, but COVID hit and it kind of dissolved that band.

"Then Brian Andreason, the lead guitarist of Leadfoot, got a hold of me and asked if I wanted to start an original outfit with him. They still had their other singer and I wasn't even considered to be part of Leadfoot yet. I was also singing for Fallen at the time.

"I was asked to fill in for a couple of gigs because the singer couldn't do it. And it just kind of morphed into it."

I am sure all of your fans are happy to have you back! 🤟🏼
