In 2020, Foundry’s single, “Intoxicate”, spent 8 weeks in the Active Rock Radio Top 40 Chart.[4] In 2019 they released original singles, “Intoxicate”, “Not This Time”, and “Thunder Rolls”, also produced by Colin Brittain. The band came out with two remakes, “Money” in 2020 and “Poker Face” in 2019. Foundry performed a 4th of July tribute LiveStream to pioneer new technology and hybrid audiences in response to the pandemic’s effect on live music.

Foundry released the single "Vegas Baby!" in December 2014.[1] The band's self-titled album was released January 5, 2015.[5] The record was mixed by Grammy-producer Steve Thompson with multi-platinum recording engineer Matt Breunig, and features guitarist Stoney Curtis and keyboardist Erik Norlander.[1][6][7] Foundry's record has 10 songs and was recorded at Vegas View Recording.[8][9] In March 2015, the band played at Count's Vamp'd in Las Vegas, where Keeling was inducted into the RockGodz Hall of Fame.[10][11] Foundry was featured on Radio Narcea, 107.5 FM out of Oviedo, Spain, in January 2017.[12]
