Fit For A King have posted another new song The Lioness. The song tells the story of a man who sells his soul to Satan in exchange for happiness. Then the man finds out that in doing so, he only finds death. The song can be streamed below.
The song is taken from their debut album Creation/Destruction which will be released next week on March 12, via Solid State Records.
Revolver mag: Which part of it did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
I came up with the concept because the desire for material things and temporary happiness was something I struggled with a lot. And this song serves as a reminder for me of the fate that awaits me if I fall into that lifestyle.
Was this an easy song to write or record?
This song was very fun to record. So its tough to say if it was easy or hard. I loved having the freedom to do some experimental patterns and vocal techniques.
What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far? What sort of reaction do you want to get from the song?
The most common response when I show someone is, “Wow. This is stupid heavy.”
Recorded with esteemed producer Andreas Magnusson [Oh, Sleeper, Haste The Day, Black Dahlia Murder], Creation/Destruction is at once the fulfillment of a longtime dream for Fit For A King, and just the first step in what is sure to sure to be an incredible journey for a band with massive potential.
Following several years of relentless DIY touring and a well-received, independently released album [2011’s Descendents], Fit For A King are reaping the benefits of their hard work. The hotly tipped metalcore band has been elbowing its way onto the national scene as a full-time touring outfit, cultivating fans at an alarming clip with a crushingly heavy, artful take on the genre that gives subtle tips of the hat to bands as diverse as The Acacia Strain, Circa Survive and Linkin Park.
The band’s passionate music, coupled with an explosive live show, has made the band a sensation in the independent music scene. With Creation/Destruction, Fit For A King are set to take their already surging career to new heights.
