Fit For A King announce new album, The Hell We Create

Following the release of their June single Reaper, Fit For A King have just announced details of a brand-new album, The Hell We Create.

Due out on October 28 via Solid State, the record is, according to vocalist Ryan Kirby, “by far the deepest and most personal” album they’ve ever made. “It is a reflection of the events that happened throughout the pandemic,” the singer says. “In short, my wife and I adopted children and had to homeschool them. She almost died from a stroke.”

Ryan continues: “I want to raise self-awareness. It’s not just important to fight for ourselves, but we’re fighting for others. You can reach out for help even if you’re scared. I know I was. I hope we can all reflect on not only what we put ourselves through, but what we put others through.”

To coincide with the news, FFAK have shared new single End (The Other Side), which Ryan explains is “one of the most personal songs I have ever written, lyrically. This song is about my wife’s near-death experience, after having a stroke, and how the experience not only showed me how unprepared I was to lose her, but also how unprepared I am to face death. I am fortunate to have not dealt with much death in my life, but I learned, in the end, that death comes for us all.”
