Fit For A King is a five-piece Metalcore outfit from Tyler, Texas. A driven attitude, creative minds and a “do it yourself” mentality has quickly set them apart among other bands on the independent circuit. Fit For A King is now touring full time in the U.S has been making a strong internet presence between the “MySpace era” and now. The band released their first full length record in September 2011 called Descendants. Along with the album came the music video “Ancient Waters” which has broke out to 500,000 + view on YouTube.
The heaviest and catchiest extreme metal act from the lone star state since the original cowboys from hell, Fit For A King's ascendance is demonstrated as much by the massive singalongs at their shows as their jaw-dropping streaming numbers. The band had nearly two million listeners on Spotify in 2019; incredible for a group who was self-releasing EPs just over a decade before.
Album six, The Path, is a definitive masterpiece. 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. Like Dark Skies, 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.
