If you’re familiar with Fit For A King, then you’re well aware of the Texans’ ability to deliver firey metalcore bangers. Recent single, ‘Keeping Secrets’ is no different. With its boisterous chorus, guttural screams, soaring cleans, and electronic trimmings, ‘Keeping Secrets’ blends all of the genre’s best tropes, which results in an absolute monster of a track.
For Fit For A King it sees them take those elements, adding a cinematic shine with subtle hints of progression in their sound. “‘Keeping Secrets’ is a song that not only showcases some new elements for the band,” says singer Ryan Kirby. “It goes back to some of the more popular elements of our older work.
Beyond the massive number, ‘Keeping Secrets’ lyrics go down an emotional route, as Kirby queries if it’s too late change and fears being a disappointment. “The song’s theme of questioning if people can truly love you, if you don’t open up and let them know the real you, is something my adopted daughter has struggled with greatly, and is the inspiration for the song,” explained Fit For A King‘s vocalist.
