New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Fit For A King are celebrating a monumental first week for recently released album Dark Skies. Securing charting positions including the #2 Hard Rock, #3 Rock, #13 Top Current Albums and #69 on the Billboard 200, this album has given Fit For A King the biggest first week in their decade-long history. Dark Skies has been streamed over 5 Million times on Spotify, locking in multiple adds to playlists like Kickass Metal and New Core. Featured single "Oblivion" is currently on Apple Music's The A-List: Metal and Breaking Metal playlists as well.

Dark Skies is Fit For A King'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." Throughout the album, produced and mixed by the legendary Drew Fulk (I Prevail, Motionless In White, Memphis May Fire), heavy music and melodic hooks are used to honestly explore the dark sides of life. Heralding praise from outlets like Consequence of Sound, Revolver, Kerrang!, Loudwire and Alternative Press, Dark Skies is available to stream and purchase today at https://solidstate.lnk.to/DarkSkies.

Like trailblazing metalcore giants Underoath and As I Lay Dying before them, Fit For A King skillfully mine the varying extremes of this music, building a catalog that sees them at home on tours with hard rock and deathcore bands alike. Tomorrow, the band will be kicking off their tour supporting The Devil Wears Prada as they celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary Tour of With Roots Above And Branches Below.

The tour will kick off in Portland, OR and travel to cities in the US and Canada through October 12th. A second leg of the tour was recently announced and includes cities like Denver, Dallas, New York and Columbus and will see the band touring through mid-December.

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).
