Formed in 2007, Fit for a King are a metalcore band from Tyler, Texas who have been making a name for themselves with a furious sound and a driving desire to tour.
Made up of singer Ryan Kirby, guitarists Justin Hamra and Bobby Lynge, bassist Aaron Kadura, and drummer Jared Easterling, the band spent their early years relentlessly hitting the road before self-releasing their debut, Descendants, in 2011. Their hard work eventually paid dividends when the band was picked up by Solid State Recording
, who reissued their debut in 2013. With the backing of a label, the band went into the studio with producer Andreas Magnusson, and began work on their debut album for the label. The fruits of their labor, Creation/Destruction, arrived in 2013. The Will Putney-produced Slave to Nothing arrived the following year, and saw the band crack the Top Ten on both the Billboard Christian Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums charts. In August 2016 Fit for a King issued "Pissed Off," the first single from their much-anticipated fourth studio LP, Deathgrip, which arrived in October of that year. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
