NASHVILLE, TN…. 9/16/20- GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum rock band SKILLET delivered what Cryptic Rock called an “epic” deluxe project, VICTORIOUS: THE AFTERMATH  (Atlantic) last week, exciting fans and media alike, with American Songwriter remarking how they “keep rocking harder,” and New Release Today remarking how it “helps ease the sting of a rough 2020.”  The collection features all twelve original tracks from 2019s Victorious, plus eight additional tracks, including two brand new unreleased songs, and 5 reimagined songs.
Of the brand new tracks is “Dead Man Walking,” a favorite of lead-singer John Cooper, and for which the band released a ‘Marvel-esque’ lyric video on their YouTube Channel today.
Two orignal Victorious tracks are also getting traction as “Legendary” has been tapped once again for the WWE’s Monday Night Raw theme song this fall, and “Terrify the Dark”  is currently impacting Christian CHR/Hot AC radio.
After wrapping their spring Victorious tour in March, and like the rest of the music world, not doing live shows since then, Skillet is excited to perform for a Billboard Live at Home on Septmber 24, and rock out in Texas and Pennsylvania for their first Drive-In concerts.  October 2nd and 3rd will find them at the Circle Drive-In in Scranton, PA., and the Starlite Drive In in Butler, PA.   The following weekend they’ll do back-to-back shows in the North parking lots of the H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, TX as part of the venue’s Tailgate Series on October 9th and 10th. The shows will also feature fellow Atlantic Record’s artist, Colton Dixon.  For for more information about these shows, please visit Skillet.com.
Still to come this fall is graphic novel Eden II: The Aftermath, once again pairing Random Shock Studios with Skillet frontman John Cooper and his Eden artist Chris Hunt. Available in both the standard and a limited deluxe edition, Skillet’s return to the post-apocalyptic world of Eden, as established in their 2019 graphic novel debut of the same name, is an exciting one for the band as well as their publisher, Z2 Comics. The original book became their best-selling graphic novel of all time. According to Cooper, Aftermath promises “more action, more surprises, more suspense.”

ABOUT SKILLET:
On Victorious, one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated, Pandora Billionaires Club recipients, multiplatinum Wisconsin quartet SKILLET—John Cooper [lead vocals/bass], Korey Cooper [guitar/keys], Jen Ledger [drums/vocals], and Seth Morrison [lead guitar]—write the soundtrack to triumph. An undying spirit humbly asserted and affirmed the band as one of this generation’s most successful rock acts. However, as all classic underdog stories do, it happened quietly under the radar. By 2019, they not only garnered a pair of GRAMMY® Award nods and sold over 12 million albums worldwide, but they also took home a Billboard Music Award for the double-platinum Awake. Its breakout single “Monster” remains “one of the most-streamed rock songs of all-time” with over 3 Billion global audio streams. 2016’s Unleashed bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. Going #1 on Rock Radio, the lead single “Feel Invincible” cracked 150 million global audio streams and went platinum. Meanwhile, the gold-certified Unleashed became their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum status. To date, nine original tunes earned RIAA recognition in tandem with high-profile syncs by everyone from WWE and Marvel to ESPN and NFL. Between selling out arenas on four continents, the group performed on CONAN and graced the pages of USA Today and New York Times, to name a few. In 2018 alone, the band clocked 1 billion streams. This momentum continues on their 2019 tenth full-length, Victorious. With the bulk produced by Korey and John, it lives up to its name for Skillet as their most triumphant body of work yet. On top of Victorious, Skillet debuted their first graphic novel, EDEN: A Skillet Graphic Novel with Z2 Comics, which has become the publisher’s best-selling book of all time.
