Lauded by words like “epic” (Cryptic Rock), "majestic sonic roller coaster" (RocknLoad), “dynamic and heavy” (Riff), “emotionally engaging” (NewReleaseToday) and "aptly named" (Plugged In), Skillet’s anticipated Victorious is available today, entering iTunes album chart at No. 1. “Legendary,” the climbing top 20 active rock hit, and “Anchor,” the newly unveiled Christian radio single, are housed on the 12 track LP. With street week attention coming from outlets like USA Today, ABC Radio, Yahoo! and more.
Preceding Victorious’ arrival is the platinum certification of “Feel Invincible” (Unleashed) and the gold certification of “Not Gonna Die” (Rise). Skillet was surprised with plaque presentations last week during appearances on FOX & Friends All American Summer Concert Series and AOL Build. Victorious serves as follow-up to the RIAA Gold-certified Unleashed - their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum or double-platinum certification.
Skillet will hit the road for two co-headlining U.S. fall tours, kicking off August 11 with Sevendust (featuring Pop Evil), followed by a 21 city trek with Alter Bridge. November 6 marks a European headlining jaunt throughout the remainder of the year, much of which is already sold out, including stops in London, Paris, Hamburg and Budapest. Also coming this fall, front man John Cooper recently collaborated with Z2 Comics for “Eden: A Skillet Graphic Novel” unveiling mid-late August.
