Skillet’s Entire Pinkpop Show Available for Streaming


skillet-2016Grammy-nominated rockers Skillet performed yesterday (June 11th) for the first time at the annual Dutch Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf. The full show can be seen in the video below.

Skillet‘s upcoming album “Unleashed” which will be released to the world on August 5 via Atlantic Records. 

Skillet will be spending the next several weeks performing in European music festivals, including Rock Im Park & Rock am Ring in Germany, Pinkpop in Holland, Download Festival in United Kingdom & France and Graspop Metal Festival in Belgium. The band will come back to the States for some festival appearances in Wisconsin, Ohio, New York, New Hampshire, Georgia, Colorado, California, and Florida. Skillet’s tour dates can be seen below.

From the bombastic opening riff of ‘Feel Invincible’ to the memorable closing of the album finale ‘The Resistance’, it is clear the band has created an album that lets their music speak loudest, while still delivering some of their most personal and heartfelt collections of songs to date.

“I wanted to make an album that could make people feel the music,” said Skillet frontman John Cooper. “I always aim to write songs to which people can relate, but this time I wanted to see not only how the songs would connect lyrically, but also how they’d connect musically.”

Songs like ‘Back From The Dead’, ‘Stars’ and ‘Out Of Hell’ showcase the musicianship and songwriting that has garnered the band a rabid worldwide fan base, a platinum-selling album and multipleGrammy nominations.

Comprised of husband and wife John (lead vocals, bass) and Korey Cooper (rhythm guitar, keyboards, programming, backing vocals), Seth Morrison (lead guitar) and Jen Ledger (drums, vocals), the band wrote or co-wrote all the songs on “Unleashed”. Once again they collaborated with Brian Howes (Daughtry, Halestorm, Nickelback) as well as Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch), Neal Avron(Twenty One Pilots, Walk The Moon, Fall Out Boy, Linkin Park) and Seth Mosley (Newsboys, Toby Mac) to create “Unleashed”.
