BRAND NEW ALBUM FEATURING TOP 40 BILLBOARD
RADIO HIT “LOCKED (IN MY HEAD)”
“The Path, is their heaviest yet, but its third single, “Locked (In My Head),” leans into the band’s poppier inclinations, highlighting their refinement of their patented mix of abrasive pummel and inescapably catchy choruses.” – Revolver
“A true exhibition of the genre’s very best.” – Guitar World
“The Path carries the overarching theme of victory and features more heavy metal styles, aimed to reel in the average listener and make them a fan of the genre overall” – American Songwriter

SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 – Dallas, TX – Fit For A King are celebrating their most successful first week of their careers with over 4 Million streams and 10,000 sales of The Path, the Dallas metalcore titans’ most recent release on Solid State Records. The band’s sixth studio album is bigger, bolder and overwhelmingly epic in scope, leaning harder on the “metal” side of their sound while doubling down on the massive catchy choruses that propelled their fiercest fan-favorite anthems.
In addition to securing the #10 spot on the Billboard Top Albums and #70 on the Billboard 200, The Path landed in the top 10 on the Current Hard Music, Current Rock, Independent, Internet, Rock, LP Vinyl and Digital Album charts. Recent single “Locked (In My Head)” also landed in the Top 40 Billboard Rock Radio Charts.
“In the past, we have dove into some pretty dark areas of life, with Dark Skies being the pinnacle of hopelessness,” shares front man Ryan Kirby on today’s release. “With ‘The Path’ we find our way out, and claim victory over the demons we have faced and are currently facing. This album is made to be the soundtrack for your victory over what mentally, and physically holds us back.”

Like the band’s 2018 mega-hit Dark Skies , which secured charting positions including the #2 Hard Rock, #3 Rock, #13 Top Current Albums and #69 on the Billboard 200, and gave them the biggest first week in their decade-long history, The Path was produced/mixed by WZRD BLD, aka Drew Fulk, who was responsible for career-making records from Dance Gavin Dance, Motionless In White and Bad Wolves.
Even as their music is rightfully heralded as “majestic and punishing” (Revolver Magazine) “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 and As I Lay Dying. As important as each record in the band’s catalog has been, many of their dedicated supporters first encountered them on the road, as they appeared several times on the Vans Warped Tour and alongside Ice Nine Kills, Beartooth, August Burns Red, and Whitechapel.
Fit For A King stands for triumph over adversity. This music is the soundtrack for those who muster the strength to carry on, to survive, to achieve, and to defeat all obstacles in life. Fit For A King is the perfect soundtrack for fighting through life’s most painful and difficult seasons.
