If you’ve heard Fit For A King’s new album The Hell We Create, you know it’s musically and thematically heavy. After listening to this episode, you’ll understand why.

Ryan Kirby has been fronting the Texas-based metalcore band since 2010. With his vocals at the helm, Fit For A King has become one of Solid State Records’ flagship bands, known for punishing breakdowns and live shows to match. Although they’ve never shied away from heaviness — musically or thematically — their new album The Hell We Create takes the weight to the next level.

In this episode, you’ll hear about the journeys into various kinds of hells that fueled the band’s most vulnerable and visceral album yet. From facing his wife’s near-death experience, to vicarious trauma through adopting children, to enduring years without live music due to the pandemic, Ryan Kirby has been to countless personal lows in the last two years. The album and this conversation map the way through that pain — and the way out.
