FIT FOR A KING premiere “Bitter End” exclusively atAbsolutePunk.net


Third track revealed from forthcoming album

Creation/Destruction, debut release for Solid State Records, in stores March 12

FIT FOR A KING have been riding high on a wave of anticipation following buzz-inducing premieres for their first two singles, “Warpath” and the recently debuted “Hollow King.” The Texas metallers are cranking that anticipation even higher today with the release of a third track, “Bitter End,” from their awaited Solid State Records debut, Creation/Destruction – in stores and online March 12th.

Listen to “Hollow King (Sound of the End)” now at Noisecreep:
“I think people will love this song because of its high energy – it doesn’t stop or take any breaks and is a great taste of how heavy and passionate this album is,” explains vocalist Ryan Kirby. “The track itself describes my struggles in my faith and my frustration with myself. In knowing I am doing wrong and contradicting what I believe, I reach my breaking point. The idea is that through the internal conflict you face with your life choice, there is nothing forcing us into a ‘bitter end’ – we can change our destinies and though we may not be worthy of another chance, it’s always there.”
Creation/Destruction is available to preorder now with several presale bundles available.

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.
