Fit For a King have a busy remainder of 2022 ahead of them — a new album and major US tour with I Prevail and Pierce The Veil are on the horizon.

Today, the Texas band has dropped the video for the band new single Reaper.’ Watch it here

Fit For A King come roaring out of the gates with ‘Reaper’, with its mosh-able grooves, hellfire riffs, and an ominous, ticking clock that nods to the song’s lyrical concept.

“In the studio, I became obsessed with a German TV show called Dark,” says vocalist Ryan Kirby“The show really had me reflect on how finite our time on earth is — that we have no control, no matter how rich, religious, or diligent. Time is truly the Grim Reaper.”

One of the heaviest and catchiest extreme metal acts 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 streaming numbers. After self-releasing EPs for years, the band released a host of critically and fan acclaimed full lengths. However, it was their sixth album, 2020’s The Path, that asserted itself as definitive for the band.

The band fires off shredding guitar solos, while doubling down on the massive catchy choruses. Even as FFAK’s music is rightfully heralded as “majestic and punishing” (Revolver Magazine) and “straightforward heaviness” (Metal Injection), genuine connection, fearless transparency, and an accessible relatability are the most essential elements of the band’s powerful presence. Their anthems appeal equally to anyone whose tastes were shaped and inspired by gateway bands like Slipknot and Korn or New Wave of American Heavy Metal torchbearers like Killswitch Engage. FFAK are road warriors, having appeared several times on the Vans Warped Tour and having toured alongside Ice Nine Kills, Beartooth, August Burns Red, and Whitechapel, among others. The band has impressively generated over 300 million streams combined, and they’re only just getting started. The band will drop its seventh album this fall.
