‘The Fool’ will be available for purchase on January 1st, along with pre-orders of King as well. The band has commented on the single:
“‘The Fool’ is one of the craziest songs of the album and we felt like it was a perfect way to let people approach our new work. It’s a song without compromises and because of the character it is about, we had the chance to get into a profound matter that concerns us all.”
Recorded at Kick Recording and 16th Cellar studios in Rome, King was mixed and mastered Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, At The Gates, Arch Enemy) at Fascination Street studio in Sweden. Artwork was created by acclaimed album artist Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth, Kataklysm, Hatebreed). The band has also booked a tour of North America for this winter.
