‘Fit For A King’ To Release Re-Recorded Version Of Debut Album


fit for a king 20132013 has been a big year for Tyler, Texas metallers Fit For A King. The buzzed-about band released its Solid State Records debut, “Creation/Destruction”, in March and in so doing, delivered the biggest first-week sales of any debut release in Solid State history — a huge feat given the storied careers of labelmates such as Underoath, Demon Hunter and August Burns Red.

Only eight months later, the band has another treat for longtime fans: a completely re-recorded version of their debut album, 2011’s “Descendants” — the very release that caused Solid State to take notice of the band in the first place.

“When we tracked ‘Descendants’ originally, we were a local band with an extremely limited budget and the songs just didn’t turn out exactly how we wanted them to,” says vocalist Ryan Kirby. “So with this re-release we set out, with the help of Solid State, to completely re-do ‘Descendants’, exactly the way we envisioned it.

“For old fans, we believe the adjustments we made and the production quality will make it like a new release. For new listeners, it will help them hear the progression we made from ‘Descendants’ to ‘Creation/Destruction’. Plus adding a new song to the mix never hurts!”

The completely overhauled release features guest appearances by Memphis May Fire‘s Matty Mullins and Ivoryline‘s Jeremy Gray but, most importantly to eager Fit For A King fans — a brand-new track entitled “Keep Me Alive”.

Following several years of relentless DIY touring and the well-received, original indie release of “Descendents”Fit For A King is reaping the benefits of its 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. With the newly revamped “Descendents” in the pipeline, Fit For A King is looking to continue to build upon its impressive surge.
