After announcing it earlier this week, Fit For A King have dropped a high-voltage new single today off their upcoming full-length. “God of Fire” features Crystal Lake frontman Ryo Kinoshita, and it’s a direct attack on religious leaders who use fear as a weapon.
“‘God of Fire’ is a song about religious leaders who instead preach a message of love, use the fear of hell and condemnation to advance their own personal morality or translations of scripture,” shares frontman Ryan Kirby on the message behind today’s release. “They essentially turn a God of love and mercy, into a God of fire.”
“God of Fire” joins “Breaking The Mirror” as the second single from the band’s forthcoming sixth album The Path, due out via Solid State Records on September 18, 2020. Bigger, bolder and overwhelmingly epic in scope, The Path leans harder on the “metal” side of their sound, with shredding guitar solos, while doubling down on the massive catchy choruses that propelled their fiercest fan-favorite anthems.
“In the past, we have dove into some pretty dark areas of life, with Dark Skies being the pinnacle of hopelessness,” shares front man Ryan Kirby on the forthcoming album. “With ‘The Path’ we find our way out, and claim victory over the demons we have faced and are currently facing. This album is made to be the soundtrack for your victory over what mentally, and physically holds us back.”
Like the band’s 2018 mega-hit Dark Skies, which secured charting positions including the #2 Hard Rock, #3 Rock, #13 Top Current Albums and #69 on the Billboard 200, and gave them the biggest first week in their decade-long history, The Path was produced/mixed by WZRD BLD, aka Drew Fulk, who was responsible for career-making records from Dance Gavin Dance, Motionless In White and Bad Wolves.
