Skillet Unveils Reimagined ‘Anchor’ Lyric Video, European Tour Kicks off Nov. 6th.


Skillet just unveiled some surprise new music in the form of a stripped down, reimagined version of their song “Anchor.” You can find the official lyric video on their youtube channel.

The song is taken from Skillet‘s tenth full-length album, “Victorious”, which was released on August 2 via Atlantic.

“Victorious” is the follow-up to the RIAA-gold-certified “Unleashed” (Skillet‘s fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum certification), the new project continues to propel the band’s position as one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, racking up over one billion streams in 2018 alone. 

‘Victorious’ perfectly describes how the record makes me feel,” affirms lead singer John Cooper. “You wake up, face your own demons every day, and never give in. There’s an introspective side to it. We might’ve commented on the world explicitly on previous albums. This one is about looking inward. Perhaps it’s because I’ve gotten a little older, and I’ve accepted struggle as part of the journey. When I listen to these songs, I want to fight for my life, I want to fight for who I am, and I want to fight for what I believe in.”

Coupled with the production strides made in the last full-length studio offering, John and wife/guitarist/keyboardist Korey took the reins for the bulk of production on “Victorious” — a career first.

“The lyrics are a call to make your life matter,” Cooper goes on. “You’re realizing you have a chance for your life to count every day. In a sense, we’re all destined to be forgotten, so live the way you want and don’t turn your back on who you are. I drew the sentiment from my own career. We’ve always put our heads down and pushed forward when confronted with adversity.”
