July 26, 2018Dallas, TX - Metalcore band Fit For A King have just dropped their newest anthem "Backbreaker", which is premiering on Kerrang! now. Listen to the heavy-hitting track HERE. This is FFAK's third single off of their forthcoming full-length album Dark Skies out on September 14th with Solid State Records, Tooth & Nail's imprint label. Fans can pre-order Dark Skies digitally on iTunes and physically on MerchNow

"'Backbreaker' is a very personal song," states frontman Ryan Kirby about the track. "It's about the crippling social anxiety I used to suffer from. It can actually feel like the end of the world when you're suffering from it. Fortunately, the band was a massive help in me overcoming the problem. We wanted to take this album in a much more aggressive direction. The pace is a lot quicker and the subject matters are the most personal to us since Slave To Nothing. We believe it's the most diverse and in-your-face material we have ever written."

The Dallas four-piece recently released singles for "Tower of Pain" and "The Price Of Agony". These tracks help make up the upcoming LP Dark Skies, which was recorded, produced and mixed by the legendary Drew Fulk (I Prevail, Motionless In White, Memphis May Fire). 

Fit For A King is currently on the road for their headline tour, hitting cities like Salt Lake City, Indianapolis, Orlando and more before wrapping up in Jacksonville, FL on August 14th.

Fit For A King was built with bootstrap ethics and do-it-yourself vigor. On the strength of self-released material, the group joined Solid State for a string of successful albums that connected with the downtrodden and dispossessed. Creation/Destruction (2013) debuted at Number 6 on the Hard Rock chartSlave to Nothing (2014) cracked the Top 50 of Billboard's Top Current AlbumsDeathgrip (2016) climbed to Number 5 among Hard Rock Albums. Now, with the band's forthcoming release, Dark Skies, on the way, Fit For A King is looking to, once again, dominate the hard rock/metalcore scene.
