Metalcore heavyweights Fit For A King have announced their sixth album The Path will be released via Solid State Records on September 18.
The Path leans harder on the “metal” side of their sound, with shredding guitar solos, while doubling down on the massive catchy choruses that propelled their fiercest fan-favourite anthems.
“In the past, we have dove into some pretty dark areas of life, with Dark Skies being the pinnacle of hopelessness,” frontman Ryan Kirby says.
“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.
Fans got a taste of the forthcoming album earlier this year when the band released the rock anthem “Breaking The Mirror”.
