We're a fun group of dudes that have been working hard for 3 years marking our mark. We enjoy making and playing music especially if others are having a good time to it. We recently recorded a great sounding sampler with Joey Sturgis and released a song with Guitar Center's Fresh Cuts Vol. 2 comp.

Biography

FLEDtheKING is an intense metal band from the North West suburbs of Chicago which has been working hard to make their mark for 3 years now. They recently recorded at the Foundation Studios (ie: The Devil Wears Prada, For the Fallen Dreams, My Children My Bride) with producer Joey Sturgis. Their recent recordings have shown a lot about how much a band can grow musically in a year and a half since thats as much as they have to date their progress back. Over that course of time they have have shaped their own sound and a professional appeal to many fans nationwide. The band has had a wide array of influences over 3 years of being a band, but few stick out in their music the most... Killswitch Engage, Misery Signals and the most of all, August Burns Red. If you enjoy any of these, you may enjoy FLEDtheKING, though they have been compared to As I Lay Dying many times. FLEDtheKING was chosen by the Smashing Pumpkins to participate in the second compilation for Guitar Center's Fresh Cuts series. Their song "Signals" was on 50,000 copies distributed to 200 + stores nationwide. They hold endorsements to Framus Amplification, VHT Amplification and Vic Firth Drumsticks.

ARCHETYPE

PROVIDER
You're persevering just to shape me into the man I am today
I STAND TALL
Reassured that you're always beside me
I STAND TALL
Reassured that you're always by my side!
By my side!

Oh!
And now I strive to be
Everything that you've wanted of me

And when I was down
You would always pick me up
Reassuring that you're always by my side

I STAND TALL
Reassured that you're always beside me
Reassured that you're always - By my side!

And I know I can never fail you

I CAN NEVER FAIL YOU
I CAN NEVER FAIL YOU
I CAN NEVER FAIL YOU
I CAN NEVER FAIL YOU

And now I strive to be
Everything that you've wanted of me
And now I strive to be
Everything that you've wanted of me

PROVIDER
You're persevering just to shape me into the man I am today
Reassured that you're always by my side!

I CAN NEVER FAIL YOU
I CAN NEVER FAIL YOU
I CAN NEVER FAIL YOU
I CAN NEVER FAIL YOU

SIGNALS

Written By: MATTHEW WALTER / OLIVER KAMYSZEW

Watch
The tide
It's rising quickly!
Are you slowly sinking?

Is it pulling you under?
Is it pulling you under?

Is everything you worked to gain...
Worth casting aside?

You've ran from open arms for far too long
We're still here to pull you from the waves
Don't set us aside this time...
Dont leave us behind this time...

It's not too late you can make the change
It's not too late you can make the change
Make the change
Make the change

We're still here to pull you from the waves
Don't set us aside this time...
Dont leave us behind this time...

It's not too late you can make the change
It's not too late you can make the change
Make the change

It's not too late
You can
Make the change
It's not too late
You can
Make the change
It's not too late
You can
Make the change
It's not too late you can make the change

It's not too late
You can make the change
It's not too late
You can make the change

THE COUNTERWEIGHT

Written By: MATTHEW WALTER / OLIVER KAMYSZEW

C'MON!

The distance
Hasn't changed a single thing in my heart
The time has passed
And we've come to meet again

But this time
It's forever
And my heart is yours until the end!
But this time
It's forever
And my heart is yours until the end!

Until the end
I will wait for you
Until the end
I will wait for you

And this is still all for you!
I would still die for you!
And this is still all for you!
I would still die for you!

Until the end
I will wait for you
Until the end
I will wait for you

Discography

We have a 2007 sampler which we duplicated about 100 times. Our new 2008 sampler was never duplicated and will not be because we are going into the studio in July to re-record all of our songs and new ones on a full length and that time we're printing them... 1,000 copies. We also have radio play in Canada and we are part of a few podcasts as well as a local radio station's airplay.

Set List

Our typical set list is about 25 - 30 minutes long and consists of 5 - 6 songs, just depending on what we choose to play, but some things always the same. Lately, the usual set list has been...

1. Intro - 30 sec. estimated
2. Archetype - 3:52
3. The Counterweight - 4:54
4. Revealer - 4:18
5. Don't Spit In the Pit - not sure
6. Signals - 4:53
