May 22, 2019 - Dallas, TX - Fit For A King have dropped a visually captivating music video for "When Everything Means Nothing" today. The standout single from recently released album Dark Skies has been heralded by fans and press alike as one of the band's most vulnerable and anthemic songs. Fans can watch the music video today at

On the video, front man Ryan Kirby shares "This video was the most miserable, but most rewarding experience. Being sprayed with a fire hose, while it's 45 degrees outside isn't super fun. But we believed this song was worth the effort. It's about the pain, frustration people feel, watching others live a 'perfect' life on social media. Constantly feeling like you just weren't destined to have a good life, like you were born in the rain." 
Fans will have a chance to hear "When Everything Means Nothing" as well as plenty of other tracks from the Billboard charting album when the band hits the road this summer for an epic headlining tour. With support from Norma Jean, Currents and Left Behind, Fit For A King will be delivering non-stop energy to stages across North America.

Dark Skies is Fit For A King's evocative declaration of a hard won victory. "This album is far from happy. It's about personal struggles," explains Kirby. "It touches on many subjects relevant to all of our daily lives." Throughout the album, produced and mixed by the legendary Drew Fulk (I Prevail, Motionless In White, Memphis May Fire), heavy music and melodic hooks are used to honestly explore the dark sides of life.
Securing charting positions including the  #2 Hard Rock, #3 Rock, #13 Top Current Albums  and  #69  on the  Billboard 200,  Dark Skies  gave Fit For A King the biggest first week in their decade-long history and has helped propel them into the forefront of the metalcore scene.  Heralding praise from outlets like Consequence of SoundRevolverKerrang!Loudwire and Alternative PressDark Skies is available to stream and purchase today  at
Fit For A King was built with bootstrap ethics and do-it-yourself vigor. On the strength of self-released material, the group joined Solid State for a string of successful albums that connected with the downtrodden and dispossessed. Creation/Destruction (2013) debuted at Number 6 on the Hard Rock chartSlave to Nothing (2014) cracked the Top 50 of Billboard's Top Current AlbumsDeathgrip (2016) climbed to Number 5 among Hard Rock Albums. Now, with the band's latest release, Dark Skies, Fit For A King is looking to, once again, dominate the hard rock/metalcore scene through a collection of diverse anthems powered by the undeniable weight of truth-telling emotional vulnerability. 
Fit For A King is Ryan Kirby (vocals), Bobby Lynge (guitar), Jared Easterling (drums), and Ryan "Tuck" O'Leary (bass/vocals).
