Skillet will release its deluxe edition project, “Victorious: The Aftermath”, on September 11. The band has just unveiled a pre-sale package that includes the album and Skillet‘s second graphic novel, “Eden II: The Aftermath”. Also available today is the instant-grat track ‘Terrify The Dark (Reimagined)‘ as well as its corresponding lyric video.
“Victorious: The Aftermath” will feature all twelve original tracks from “Victorious”, plus eight additional tracks, including two brand new unreleased songs, and five reimagined songs. Full track listing will be unveiled at later date.
“Eden II: The Aftermath” once again pairs Random Shock Studios with Skillet frontman John Cooper and his “Eden” artist Chris Hunt. Two editions will again be available; 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, as the original book became their best-selling graphic novel of all time. According to Cooper, “Aftermath” promises “more action, more surprises, more suspense.”
Skillets tenth studio album, “Victorious”, has been released last August via Atlantic.
