Fit For A King Release Re-Recorded "Descendants"
Its been a big year for Fit For A King. The buzzed about band released their Solid State Records debut, Creation/Destruction in March and in so doing, delivered the biggest first-week sales of any debut release in Solid State Records history - a huge feat given the storied careers of labelmates such as Underoath, Demon Hunter and August Burns Red.
Only 8 months later the band has released a completely re-recorded version of their debut album, 2011’s Descendants - the very release that caused Solid State to take notice of the band in the first place. The completely overhauled release features guest appearances by Memphis May Fire's Matty Mullins and Ivoryline's Jeremy Gray, as well as a brand-new track entitled “Keep Me Alive.” Get it at iTunes, Amazon.com, or the Solid State Records Store:

“When we tracked Descendants originally we were a local band with an extremely limited budget and the songs just didn't turn out exactly how we wanted them to,” says vocalist Ryan Kirby. “So with this re-release we set out, with the help of Solid State, to completely re-do Descendants, exactly the way we envisioned it. For old fans we believe the adjustments we made and the production quality will make it like a new release. For new listeners it will help them hear the progression we made from Descendants to Creation/Destruction. Plus adding a new song to the mix never hurts!”
