Skillet Talks New Album and Goes Platinum

Photo from Today's Christian Music/CCM Magazine

Skillet is keeping ROCK alive! Their latest release "Awake" has just been certified platinum for sales in excess of one million copies in the US. What's even cooler is Skillet was the only active rock band to achieve platinum certification in 2012.. SWEET!

As we speak, Skillet is putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated new album, which is set for release in spring 2013!  Can't wait! Here is what lead vocalist John Cooper  told CCM Magazine about the new album:

"Musically, this record feels like a roller coaster ride. Several tracks are aggressive with dirtier and edgier guitars. Korey's keyboards are extremely unique and Jen's great vocals are showcased throughout the album. There are some powerful anthems and what our fans tend to love, the "signature Skillet" songs: symphonic, classical rock duets."

I am absolutely stoked!! I hope they come to my hometown again like they did for Awake & Alive! Their songs have gotten me through a lot of hard times but also have had songs that let me enjoy life and the love and endless amounts of greatness our God gives! Thank you Skillet!
