Following a self-released debut album, Fit For A King signed with Solid State Records in 2011. Their first album, Creation|Destruction, with Solid State was just recently released (March 12), and it is an excellent beginning album with which both the band and Solid State should be quite pleased. From the starting gate, Creation|Destruction comes out strong with the song “Warpath,” a heavy opener that immediately presents FFAK’s unique mix of technical precision and gutsy groove.
On Friday, March 8, the Greenville College Choir loaded the bus behind Whitlock Music Center and began our spring break tour. We traveled through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas before stopping to sing in the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica on our way back to Greenville. Nearly every night, we stayed in the homes of church members. One of the best parts of choir tour is meeting wonderful people who open up their homes to us every night. Debates are still raging as to who had the best (or worst) host home stay—some choir members brag about trampolines or hot tubs and others fight over who had the most adorable dogs. We performed concerts every day except for one, in which we had the option to spend time either at Six Flags over Texas or the Dallas Arts District. We also had the opportunity to visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum; it was a powerful place. The Fort Worth Stockyards was another great stop during tour.
