Metalcore band Fit For A King have just dropped their newest anthem “Backbreaker”, which is premiering on Kerrang! now. Listen to the heavy-hitting track HERE. This is FFAK’s third single off of their forthcoming full-length album Dark Skies out on September 14th with Solid State Records, Tooth & Nail’s imprint label. Fans can pre-order Dark Skies digitally on iTunes and physically on MerchNow.

“’Backbreaker’ is a very personal song,” states frontman Ryan Kirby about the track. “It’s about the crippling social anxiety I used to suffer from. It can actually feel like the end of the world when you’re suffering from it. Fortunately, the band was a massive help in me overcoming the problem. We wanted to take this album in a much more aggressive direction. The pace is a lot quicker and the subject matters are the most personal to us since Slave To Nothing. We believe it’s the most diverse and in-your-face material we have ever written.”

The Dallas four-piece recently released singles for “Tower of Pain” and “The Price Of Agony”. These tracks help make up the upcoming LP Dark Skies, which was recorded, produced and mixed by the legendary Drew Fulk (I Prevail, Motionless In White, Memphis May Fire).
