Fit For A King Premiere New Song “Times Like This” Featuring The Ghost Inside’s Jonathan Vigil

Fit For A King have premiered a new song titled “Times Like This.” This track features The Ghost Inside’s Jonathan Vigil and it will appear on the band’s new album “The Hell We Create,” which is set to be released on October 28. Fit For A King’s Ryan Kirby commented:

“‘Times Like This‘ is about how as a society, we have accepted misinformation as a part of life, and in some cases, even embraced it. Those in power keep us at each other’s throats using these tactics, and when we rise above the noise, we can finally give the throne back to the many — not the few.”

The Amity Affliction Postpone European/UK Tour Due To Mental Health Issues

The Amity Affliction have postponed their European/UK tour due to mental health issues. The trek will now take place in early 2023 with Fit For A King, SeeYouSpaceCowboy, and Gideon set to open.

Vocalist Joel Birch issued the following statement:

“For anyone who has been following our band over the past 18 years it will come as no surprise that we as a band have had ongoing struggles with our mental health. We have never cancelled a tour. Ever. We have played almost dead, we have played crippled, we have played when I (Joel, who is writing this) have been close to killing myself, and not once have we ever pumped the brakes when we definitely should have.

We have had a system of time off between tours that has worked for us for the most part, but in the depths of Covid we agreed to break this structure as all we wanted to do at the times was tour. We committed to back to back USA and European tours and we are in a situation now where we can’t consciously embark safely on both tours and need to briefly pump the brakes.

Some members of the band need to seek help for their mental health, issues that were compounded during the worst of Covid. We are at a point where if we were to force them to continue our European tour as it stands, directly after the US tour, we would risk having to face a situation far worse than a cancelled tour, and that’s not a risk we are willing – nor should anyone be willing – to take.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly, in fact this is the fastest selling headline tour we have announced, but what matters to us foremost is making sure that our brothers have the space and time to tackle the parts of their lives that need to be addressed. Sadly, within the music industry – and indeed the larger entertainment and hospitality industries within which we coexist – the schedules that artists are expected to keep maintaining to remain relevant are brutal.

This has created a culture and an atmosphere that almost rewards abuse, which leads to extremely poor mental health issues that mostly roll on disregarded. The music industry is a behemoth that moves on without the artists it spits out, and so if we were to ignore this situation and abandon the love we have for our friends, EXPECTING them to embark on a timeline of touring that would very likely destroy them and us, life would go, just not for us. Not for our band. Not for all the people who love them, and not for our, our extremely loyal and beloved fans.

Thankfully this is FAR from a break up statement. It’s just us, asking for your understanding as we move our European tour and give our friends and brothers the time to heal some wounds that have been left unattended. Without a debut we will be back in Europe and the UK, it will just be a little later than planned. The US tour will go ahead as scheduled, and all future plans are still in place.

We do apologize – deeply and sincerely – for this move, but as I have stated above, sometimes you need to pump the brakes, and that time for us is now.”

Fit For A King Premiere “End (The Other Side)” Music Video

Fit For A King have premiered a new video for their new song “End (The Other Side).” This track is from the band’s new album “The Hell We Create,” which will be released on October 28.

Singer Ryan Kirby said the following about the song:

“‘End (The Other Side)’ 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.”

He also added the following about the album:

“It is a reflection of the events that happened throughout the pandemic. In short, my wife and I adopted children and had to homeschool them. She almost died from a stroke. ‘The Hell We Create’ is by far the deepest and most personal record we’ve ever written.”

“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.”

“The Hell We Create” Track Listing:

01. “The Hell We Create”
02. “End (The Other Side)”
03. “Falling Through The Sky”
04. “Sink Below”
05. “Reaper”
06. “Times Like This” (feat. Jonathan Vigil)
07. “Eyes Roll Back”
08. “Fracture”
09. “Reaching Out”
10. “What You Left Behind”

Fit For A King Premiere “Reaper” Music Video

Fit For A King have premiered a new video for their new song “Reaper.” Ryan Kirby commented:

“In the studio, I became obsessed with a German TV show called ‘Dark.’ The show really had me reflect on how finite our time on earth is — that we have no control, no matter how rich, religious, or diligent. Time is truly the Grim Reaper.”
