‘Skillet’ Releases Teaser Video For New Single ‘Sick Of It’, New Tour Dates


Skillet 2013Two-time Grammy nominated rock band Skillet are preparing to release their brand new album, Rise, on June 25th via Atlantic/Word. The lead single titled, “Sick Of It” will be available on iTunes and radio on April 9th. In the meantime, the band has released a short teaser video of the track for fans to listen and watch now packed intense live performance footage and have also released the album artwork for Rise. Teaser & artwork can be viewed below.

To celebrate the release of the single, the band just wrapped up hosting an Instagram photo contest where fans submitted photos of what they are “sick of.” The band will soon be releasing the official lyric video using those photos created by fans.

Skillet is currently working on their highly anticipated album due out this spring. The band is teaming up with producerHoward Benson [My Chemical Romance, Motorhead, All American Rejects], and recording in Los Angeles.

Of the new album, lead singer John Cooper says, “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 “signatureSkillet” songs: symphonic, classical rock duets.”

Skillet‘s new album was also featured in Guitar World with a 2-page spread. CCM Magazine delved a little further with their “In the Studio” and “Gear Guide” features.

Skillet is one of only three rock bands to go platinum in 2012. Mumford & Sons, and Black Keys are the other two. They’ve been nominated for two Grammys, and their 2009 release Awake went platinum last year, selling over 1 million units in the U.S. alone.
