This tour adds to the band's already busy touring schedule of the last year supporting their most personal release of their career, Dark Skies. The band is continuing to celebrate monumental achievements with the album and just this week, "Price of Agony" surpassed 5 Million Streams on Spotify. Securing charting positions including the #2 Hard Rock, #3 Rock, #13 Top Current Albums and #69 on the Billboard 200, Dark Skiesgave Fit For A King the biggest first week in their decade-long history and has helped propel them into the forefront of the metalcore scene. 

Dark Skies is Fit For A King's evocative declaration of a hard won victory. "This album is far from happy. It's about personal struggles,"explains singer Ryan Kirby"It touches on many subjects relevant to all of our daily lives."Throughout the album, produced and mixed by thelegendary Drew Fulk (I Prevail, Motionless In White, Memphis May Fire), heavy music and melodic hooks are used to honestly explore the dark sides of life. Heralding praise from outlets like Consequence of SoundRevolverKerrang!Loudwire and Alternative PressDark Skies is available to stream and purchase today at

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 latest release, Dark Skies, Fit For A King is looking to, once again, dominate the hard rock/metalcore scene through a collection of diverse anthems powered by the undeniable weight of truth-telling emotional vulnerability. 

Fit For A King is Ryan Kirby (vocals), Bobby Lynge (guitar), Jared Easterling (drums), and Ryan "Tuck" O'Leary (bass/vocals).
