Fit For A King Premiere New Track “Oblivion”

Fit For A King premiere another new song from their new effort “Dark Skies“, with “Oblivion” streaming online below.

The group’s vocalist Ryan Kirby had the following to say of this latest single

“To put it simply, ‘Oblivion‘ is a story about a man’s search for forgiveness. The lyrics in this track were inspired by a fan (who wishes to remain anonymous), who had done some hurtful things to people he loved.

He felt he was beyond forgiving, though he desired it deeply and wanted to make things right. The chorus, ‘Tell me I won’t be forgotten,’ is his cry to God to not abandon him, to give him peace. It’s one of the more emotional songs on the album.”

“Dark Skies” will be out in stores on September 14th through Solid State and Fit For A King will be touring with The Devil Wears Prada and ‘68 on this North American tour behind it:
