Fit For A King was back to the east coast last weekend on an insane tour featuring their new album “The Hell We Create” which you can listen to here on Spotify. They bring along friends in Northlane, Alpha Wolf and Kingdom of Giants. The tour was wrapped up this week but we were able to catch them in Philadelphia playing at the amazing Theatre of Living Arts (TLA).
The venue was already pretty packed before the opening band. As the night went on, it just kept on getting more and more packed. The show was SOLD OUT with very few resale tickets remaining the day of the show.
Kingdom of Giants took the stage first and told the crowd, “Alright Philly we got you for 25 minutes let’s show them how it’s done.” KOG (Kingdom of Giants) was able to engage the crowd and get everyone moving and start to crowd surf.
Alpha Wolf is always a fantastic show and I would recommend anyone to see them. Alpha Wolf makes it easy to get pumped even if you don’t know the songs. The lighting that went along with the show was also a perfect match and couldn’t be any better. Halfway through their show Alpha Wolf beach balls made an appearance and bounced over the crowd.
Northlane’s energy was just as expected. It was my first time seeing them and it was a great show. Everyone was bouncing to Quantum Flux and singing and dancing along to every song. Northlane played a great mix of new and older songs.
Fit For A King opened with, “The Hell We Create” and played bangers from their new album and beloved songs from The Path, Dark Skies and Deathgrip. When it came to fan favorite, “Deathgrip” everyone was screaming almost louder than the drum kit on the stage. The entire room was jumping and everyone was energized for the entire show. Ryan O’Leary the bassist for FFAK had to have jumped at least 30 times or so. I tried to keep count of how many jumps but it was so many. The energy on the stage for a FFAK show is unmatched and it makes me so excited to photograph and see them when I can. I love to see other members in a band showing off some vocals and FFAK did just that. Daniel Gailey (Guitarist) and Ryan O’Leary joined Ryan Kirby on vocals for multiple songs. Along with the great musicianship the graphics and lighting design fit the show perfectly. FFAK embraced new fans and old fans by playing a perfect set of songs from now to Bitter End.
