Exclusive: Fit For a King Premiere New Song, “The Lioness”

Today, RevolverMag.com brings you the exclusive premiere of “The Lioness,” a new song by Fit For a King, a Tyler, Texas-based metalcore band. The track, which you can check out via the Soundcloud player below, is from the band’s new album, “Creation/Destruction, which will be released March 12.

The band is Ryan Kirby (vocals), Justin Hamra (guitar), Bobby Lynge (guitar), Jared Easterling (drums) and Aaron Kadura (bass). Kirby took some time to answer a few questions about “The Lioness.”

REVOLVER: What’s the song about?
The song tells the story of a man who sells his soul to Satan in exchange for happiness. Then the man finds out that in doing so, he only finds death.

Which part of it did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
I came up with the concept because the desire for material things and temporary happiness was something I struggled with a lot. And this song serves as a reminder for me of the fate that awaits me if I fall into that lifestyle.

Was this an easy song to write or record?
This song was very fun to record. So its tough to say if it was easy or hard. I loved having the freedom to do some experimental patterns and vocal techniques.

What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far? What sort of reaction do you want to get from the song?
The most common response when I show someone is, “Wow. This is stupid heavy.”
