Metalcore heavyweights Fit For A King, have released the third single from their forthcoming album ‘The Path’. ‘Locked (In My Head)’ highlights the band’s ability to speak openly about the pain and struggles they face in their lives, while providing a heavy-hitting anthem with instant relatability.
“While Locked may seem a little out of place on an album based on victory and overcoming life’s challenges, it’s a song about understanding that all the mental things we fight through can only be defeated by our own will and perseverance,” front man Ryan Kirby shares. “Along the road, we will get help, whether from God or others, but at the end of it all, it’s a war that YOU must fight, and YOU must win.”
‘Locked (In My Head)’ joins ‘God of Fire’ and ‘Breaking The Mirror’ as the third single from the band’s forthcoming 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-favourite 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.”
While so many bands exploded onto the scene with supercharged “hype,” only to burn out and fade away just as quickly, FIT FOR A KING steadily built a ferociously dedicated following through determination, classic American Metalcore breakdowns, lyrical courage, and steadfast conviction.
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 online following.
Where Deathgrip and Dark Skies spoke to raw feelings of alienation, abandonment, and disillusionment, this new record is focused on The Path out of those hells. FIT FOR A KING has become the very soundtrack for fighting through life’s most painful and difficult seasons.
The Path is the sound of victory, championing perseverance over divisiveness, boundless optimism over anxiety and depression. FIT FOR A KING stand for triumph over adversity. This music is the soundtrack for those who muster the strength to carry on, to achieve, to overcome all obstacles.
