Fit For A King are giving fans a look into their more vulnerable side through the release of their latest single “When Everything Means Nothing” today. The track, which is premiering with Alternative Press today touches upon the struggle of comparing yourself to other people’s “highlight reels” on social media. “We just wanted people to know that no one is living a perfect life. If you’re struggling through depression, anxiety, anything – it’s normal. It doesn’t make you less. People are going through these things even if you can’t see it” shared vocalist Ryan Kirby in an exclusive interview. To hear the melodic rock anthem and read the rest of the interview, head to AltPress.com.
“When Everything Means Nothing” joins previously released singles “Tower of Pain” and “The Price Of Agony” and “Backbreaker.” 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) and is set to be released on September 14th with Solid State Records.
