triumphs over judgement.” – idobi Radio – The Spinning Thoughts


Fit For A King’s ‘Dark Skies’ might be the band at their

most ambitious & confident yet.” – Captured Howls (5/5)


“For a band who promise transparency, whose battle-cry is a roar in the face of the oubliette of the soul, Dark Skies is a beautifully-authored collection that covers an array of current hot topics and issues, but somehow never once shirks its edge.” Cryptic Rock (4.5/5)


“Listen to these songs. They will help. They will be your cathartic release.” – Soundfiction


September 14, 2018 – Dallas, TX – Today marks the release of Fit For A King’s most personal album yet, Dark Skies.

Heralding praise from outlets like Consequence of Sound, Revolver, Kerrang!, Loudwire and Alternative Press, Dark Skies is available to stream and purchase today at


Dark Skies is the band’s evocative declaration of a hard won victory. “This album is far from happy. It’s about personal struggles,” explains singer Ryan Kirby. “It touches on many subjects relevant to 

all of our daily lives.” The album has already seen incredible streaming success through single releases including adds to Spotify’s New Core, Extreme Metal Workout and

No matter the political divisions, the staggering alienation arising from our paradoxical and increasingly “connected” world, or the mistakes we all make, Fit For A King offer a foundation of open-mindedness and compassion. “We’re a very transparent band. We aren’t pretending to be something we’re not,” says Kirby. “We want people to know exactly who we are.”


Fit For A King cherishes unwavering honesty. Even under Dark Skies.




Fit For A King was built with bootstrap ethics and do-it-yourself vigor. On the strength of self-released material, the group joined Solid State for a string of successful albums that connected with the downtrodden and dispossessed. Creation/Destruction (2013) debuted at Number 6 on the Hard Rock chart. Slave to Nothing (2014) cracked the Top 50 of Billboard’s Top Current Albums. Deathgrip (2016) climbed to Number 5 among Hard Rock Albums. Now, with the band’s latest release, Dark Skies, Fit For A King is looking to, once again, dominate the hard rock/metal-core scene through a collection of diverse anthems powered by the undeniable weight of truth-telling emotional vulnerability.


Fit For A King is Ryan Kirby (vocals), Bobby Lynge (guitar), Jared Easterling (drums), and Ryan “Tuck” O’Leary (bass/vocals).
