Metalcore giants Fit For A King have released the third single from their forthcoming album The Path today. “Locked (In My Head)” highlights the band’s ability to speak openly about the pain and struggles they face in their lives while providing a heavy-hitting anthem that fans will instantly relate to. It is available now at https://ffak.ffm.to/locked.
“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,” front man Ryan Kirby shares. “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.”
In addition to the song release, the band has teamed up with Revolver Magazine to exclusive premiere the high-octane music video for “Locked (In My Head).” Bringing some of the incomparable energy they carry on stage with full-band performance shots in addition to stunning visuals, this music video encapsulates the fire behind Fit For A King.
Fans can stream “Locked (In My Head)” today at https://ffak.ffm.to/locked and check out the music video exclusively with Revolver.
“Locked (In My Head)” joins “God of Fire” and “Breaking The Mirror” as the third single from the band’s forthcoming sixth album The Path due out via Solid State Records on September 18, 2020. Bigger, bolder and overwhelmingly epic in scope, 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,” shares front man Ryan Kirby on the forthcoming album. “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 securedcharting 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.
Fit For A King’s sixth studio album ‘The Path‘ will be released through Solid State Records on Friday September 18th and can be pre-ordered at https://ffak.ffm.to/thepath. New Single ‘Locked (In My Head)’ is out in all good digital stores and streaming platforms now at https://ffak.ffm.to/locked!
