Skillet frontman John Cooper, who is preparing to release the debut EP from his new metal side project Fight The Fury, has told Consequence Of Sound in an interview this week that the next Skillet  album is on the way — but just delayed a bit. According to The Pulse Of RadioCooper explained: “As of seven weeks ago, we were supposed to be releasing a brand new Skillet  record in October. And six months before that, we had planned to release the new album this past January. Now, we’re not going to release it until next year.”

Saying that Skillet‘s 10th studio effort is nearly done and will arrive next summer, Cooper was asked about its musical direction. He replied: “I do think the new album is going to be a bit heavier, but we’re going to have those arena anthems and also some duets with Jen [Ledger, drummer] and me, which our fans love. I’m excited for it.” Continue reading »

Fight The Fury, the new metal project from Skillet frontman and bassist John Cooper, will release its debut EP, “Still Breathing”, on October 26 via Atlantic Records. The disc’s first single, ‘My Demons’, can be streamed below. The song is available as an instant grat track for all fans who pre-order the record.

Fight The Fury also features Skillet guitarist Seth Morrison, along with drummer Jared Ward and guitarist John Panzer III.

‘My Demons’ is the first song that I wrote for the project about five years ago when I first had the idea to start Fight The Fury,” Cooper shared, offering some insight into the track. “It’s a good first taste for fans because it’s got all of the ingredients of the band: aggression, melody, screaming, angst, a touch of progressive rock, and frenzied chaos. It touches on some dark themes that can be related in general to most people’s individual struggles in life.” Continue reading »

“I felt in my heart that I was meant to write the treatment because the song is just so personal to me,” she says. “I wanted the video to feel as real to me and as personal to me as the song does, and it just meant too much to me to choose one of these other treatments.” Continue reading »
