Texas metalcore band Fit For A King are on a constant path upward, with each record they release seemingly catapulting them to higher success. The band has now announced that their sixth album The Path will be released 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.
While it’s not the new song the band debuted live on the Dark Skies tour last weekend, Fit For A King have released an explosive new song in the form of “Breaking The Mirror”. The new song arrives as the band is currently headlining their own Dark Skies world tour, and thankfully for FFAK and heavy music fans, that tour is still going on as scheduled despite the coronavirus quarantine. Stream the new track below.
Fit For A King just started one of the most anticipated metal tours of the first half of 2020, but the Texas metalcore band has already gotten off to a roaring start by debuting a new song. Entitled “God Of Fire”, the new song is rumored to drop possibly this Friday, though that should of course be taken with a grain of salt.
Making it even better is the fact that tourmates Crystal Lake joined in on the fun, at least their acclaimed vocalist Ryo Kinoshita, anyway. The fact that the collaboration happened on the first date of the tour lends credence to the fact that it’ll likely be released soon, and if fans are lucky, maybe it’ll become a setlist staple. Either way, the fan-shot video can be viewed below, so give it a watch – along with the remained of the tour dates, which also feature Chelsea Grin and Alpha Wolf.
Fit For A King and Phinehas are two bands that are unafraid to wave the flag of American Metalcore. I mean seriously, Fit For A King emblazon the genre on some of their merch! Both bands have put out forward-thinking and interesting releases, especially Dark Skies and thegodmachine.
Anyhow, FFAK vocalist Ryan Kirby and Phinehas guitarist Daniel Gailey now have a channel dedicated to their covers of their favorite rock and metal songs, and they’re getting community involvement, too. Their new cover of Killswitch Engage’s classic, “My Curse”, is a pretty spot-on take of the original, and stylishly executed as well. The duo will be offering up 2 covers every month – and 3 for Patreon supporters – making this a worthwhile use of your funds, should you choose to financially support.
Ryan and Daniel have a Patreon account, where you can also vote in their monthly cover poll, get an mp3 of said cover for yourself, and much more.
