Skillet will release its new album, “Victorious”, on August 2 via Atlantic Records. The follow-up to 2016’s gold-certified “Unleashed” includes the first single, “Legendary”, which can be streamed below.

Frontman John Cooper told Billboard: “It’s the first time that me and Korey [CooperJohn‘s wife and Skillet guitarist/keyboardist] produced most of the record ourselves. When I was looking at what we did well on ‘Unleashed’, I thought it was a real energizing and fun record to listen to. That’s what a great Skillet record is — songs that make people want to put their fists up in the air at a concert or get them through a run or drive or whatever they are doing. So we set out to make a record that had a lot of emotion to it.

“We got to really dig in and try anything we wanted to try, and that comes through in some of the intricacies of the production,” he added. “It’s quite a musical record. I think it’s a little bit more musical than we’ve done in a long time.” Continue reading »

Skillet drummer Jen Ledger has released the official music video for her new single, ‘Completely.’

She states about the track: “‘Completely’ is a very simple celebration of the most awesome thing in the entire world, the love of our God. I find it so mind-blowing that before the creation of the world, He not only knew my name but He chose me and He loved me, He knew the mistakes I was going to make, He knew the ways I was going to let people down or even let myself down and none of it shocks Him. None of it makes Him turn away and His love stays strong just the same. There is nothing better and greater and sweeter than the love of our God and the fact that I can rest in that for the rest of life. It’s simple, but it’s profound and I think it’s absolutely worth celebrating.”

Ledger released her first solo EP, titled “Ledger”, last April through Hear It Loud, a label imprint launched by Skillet frontman John Cooper and his wife, Skillet keyboardist Korey Cooper. Continue reading »
