The following was said about that:

“…Crystal Kirby (Ryan‘s wife) has been in and out of the hospital over the last few months being treated for bloodclots in her brain.

Love you all!”

“‘Annihilation‘ is about welcoming the destruction of who you are, in order to build up to something better. There are definitely times we can improve and fix the issues we have, but sometimes, a fresh start is what we need, and in order to do that, we have to start from the ground up.”

Fit For A King Premiere “Locked (In My Head)” Video

Fit For A King have premiered a new video for their new song “Locked (In My Head).” This track is from the band’s new album “The Path,” which will be released on September 18.

Ryan Kirby told Revolver the following:

“While ‘Locked’ may seem a little out of place on an album centered around victory and overcoming life’s challenges, it’s a song about understanding that all the mental things we fight through can only be defeated by our own will and perseverance. Along the road, we will get help — whether from God or others — but at the end of it all, it’s a war that you must fight, and you must win.”

“When we went to shoot the video, it was the first time seeing the rest of the band since the shutdowns began in March. So not only was the video crazy to film with all the fireworks shooting at us, [but] we were genuinely having amazing time getting to be together again.”
