Fit For A King Recruit Drummer Trey Celaya

Fit For A King have officially welcomed Trey Celaya (Invent Animate) to the band as their new drummer. He is taking over for Jared Easterling, who recently exited the group.

Fit For A King commented:

“We are excited to announce that @inventtrey will be joining the band full time playing drums. We have been great friends and have been touring together for a long time already, so this was an easy decision for us to make. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have him behind the kit with us moving forward.”

Celaya added:

“you guys have probably seen that i’ve been touring with @fitforakingtx over the past few years, and i’m excited to announce that i’m officially their new drummer. i’m still in @invent_animate , and will continue to be an integral part of the songwriting and recording process, but i will no longer be touring with them. my inner fire has always told me to create, and i am blessed to be able to spread my wings and creatively contribute to two bad*ss bands that i love and regard as family. life is really busy between writing, recording with both bands, planning a wedding and touring, but my heart is full and i’m excited about everything that is to come. let us rock onward 🤙🏽”

Fit For A King Part Ways With Drummer Jared Easterling

Fit For A King have parted ways with drummer Jared Easterling. The band commented:

“Hey everyone. We are sad to announce Jared will be stepping away from the band to pursue an amazing life opportunity he has been presented with. There is no bad blood whatsoever and we are so excited for him and this new chapter of his life! Also, Bobby will be joining us on stage for the first time since 2018 for the rescheduled August Burns Red shows! If you’re able to make it, come see us with Jared and Bobby together for one final time. For those wanting more details, here is a message directly from Jared.”

2021 Rebel Rock Festival Cancelled

The 2021 Rebel Rock festival in Orlando, FL has officially been cancelled. The event was unable to move forward due to unfit conditions related to severe weather.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“We are deeply and utterly devastated to announce the cancellation of this weekend’s Rebel Rock Festival.

After this week’s severe weather and despite our crew’s effort to improve the ground conditions around the Main Stage over the last three days, our venue partner has deemed the area unfit for artists, crews, vendors, and fans. We were able to get in the Taco Metal Party on Thursday by using the B-Main grounds while continuing to work on the conditions of the Main Stage grounds. The amount of water dropped this week simply proved to be too much to clear to provide you a safe festival environment and experience. We can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to see two years of work be tackled by mother nature.

We’ll share more information about refunds as soon as possible.”
