FIT FOR A KING premiere “The Lioness” exclusively via Revolver


Fourth track revealed from forthcoming album

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

March 7, 2013 – For FIT FOR A KING and their fans, months of anticipation are about to pay off. The Texas buzz-band has spent recent weeks unveiling new music via outlets as diverse as Alternative Press, Noisecreep and Absolute Punk. Now, less than a week before the release of its Solid State Records debut, Creation/Destruction – in stores and online March 12th – the band is dropping another ferocious new track, “The Lioness,” as a final preview via heavy music tastemaker Revolver.


“The song tells the story of a man who sells his soul to Satan in exchange for happiness, but finds out that in doing so, he only finds death,” vocalist Ryan Kirby explains to Revolver. “I came up with the concept because the desire for material things and temporary happiness was something I have personally 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.”

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.
