Skillet Bio:

After nearly two decades of making music, Skillet is still going strong with their latest “Sick Of It,” of the album Rise (June 21, 2013). With Rise, the band continues to produce songs that can appeal to people of all ages and from all walks of life.

“We try and be a band that any age can appreciate," says lead singer John Cooper. “There are no strippers on stage at our shows and we watch what we say onstage - it's important to us that we deliver a great rock show, with production values and songs we're proud of, but that we also deliver something that everyone can enjoy - everyone. There's a lot of negative things in the world today, a lot of ugliness and so we look at our music as a chance to put something positive out there. Not to preach to fans, but rather to just balance things a little with music that has some positive meaning and values.”

After the bands Seraph and Urgent Cry parted ways in the early 90’s John Cooper- former vocalist of Seraph, and Ken Steorts- former guitarist for Urgent City, formed their own band as a side-project after meeting each other through touring. Melding their two different styles of rock together, the guys called the band Skillet and in 1998 released their self-titled album.

The next few years consisted of lots band changes and many successful songs including: “The Older I Get,” “Open Wounds,” “Yours To Hold,” “Rebirthing,” and “Comatose,” Over the years, the band has developed a cult-like following with some of their fans even referring to themselves as “Panheads.”

Skillet, (which now consists of John Cooper, Korey Cooper, Seth Morrison, and Jen Ledger) released the album Awake in August of 2009, which featured the hit songs, “Hero,” and “Monster.” The record was a step up for the band personally and creatively, “It’s a turning of the page for us because this album is even more immediate than Comatose but there’s also a noticeable maturity,” John says. “Some of the songs are complex, others are just really intense rockers and overall there’s a real sense that we’re opening a new chapter.”

Skillet is currently gearing up to hit the road this Spring with TobyMac and LeCrae for the exclusive Summer Shed Tour begining March 1, 2014.
