We grab some time with Christian metalcore band, Fit For A King and get them to answer ten questions for us.
What do you guys think the most important part of your music is?
The heart we put behind it. Its not just music to us, its an outlet.
What was it like being a Christian metalcore band? Do people judge you more?
It doesn’t feel too different. Other bands will talk down to Christians on stage and stuff, but we never feel any direct judgment.
Do you feel you’ve evolved as people since the start of the band’s career?
Absolutely. Biggest difference is we are A LOT smarter with our decisions now. Learning from past mistakes has helped us a lot. Not to mention 2 of the 4 members, including myself, are married now.
What would your favourite song be to play live?
Stacking Bodies has to be my favorite right now. Love that last breakdown!
If you could tour with any band again or for the first time who would it be and why?
We would all love to tour with August Burns Red again. No hesitation.
What would you say the most meaningful lyric that the band has put in any of your songs?
“There is life beyond the pain.”
What’s the favourite show that you guys have played?
December 18, 2016. The Door. Dallas, TX. For Today’s final show.
What did you feel like when you saw the attacks where you were due to play?
I felt a lot of anxiety. I kept debating in my head whether I should play the show or not. But in the end, not playing that show would have given the terrorists exactly what they wanted: Fear.
Do you feel your new album Deathgrip was received well?
Absolutely. It had the biggest first week we have ever had, and has quadrupled our previous albums stream numbers to this point. And the songs are already the most popular ones live.
What story do you feel you’ve told best in your songs; as I know most of your songs were about the attacks in Paris
“Cold Room” is the most intriguing story to me. It’s a fan submitted story about a woman that had an abortion when she was younger, and she later became pregnant again. She constantly battles with herself whether she is worthy of being a mother or not.
