Further cementing their place as one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, 12x-platinum rockers SKILLET are seeing their RIAA certifications multiply yet again. Their latest milestones include the new triple-platinum status of their landmark album Awake, with three of its hit tracks also accumulating more certs as “Awake & Alive,” goes double-platinum, “Hero,” triple-platinum, and “Monster,” already one of the most-streamed rock songs in history” with over 4 billion global audio streams, hits quadruple platinum status.
SKILLET’S latest single, “Surviving The Game,” the first from their forthcoming January 14th album, DOMINION (Atlantic), has made a strong debut, already accumulating over 6.5 million streams. It’s music video has been viewed over 2.7 million times, and has seen some great sport sync usage, including a recent MLB hit.
Today, their second instant grat track, “Standing In the Storm” is available upon pre-ordering DOMINION. Fans also have access to a lyric video for “Standing in the Storm.”
Swirling around the key line, “I’ve still got some life in me,” culled from one of Korey Cooper’s journals, John Cooper comments, “We’re getting older, our kids are getting older, and the world is falling apart, so there’s a part of me that’s like, ‘Do you really want to go back on the road in the midst of a Pandemic?’,” he admits. “Do we want to keep this business going? Then, she showed me this passage in her journal. I was really impacted. I started to think, ‘Yes, there’s a lot of crazy things going on, but I’m not done!’”
DOMINION, produced by Kevin Churko (Papa Roach, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch) with songs written by John Cooper, Korey Cooper, Kevin Churko and Kane Churko, was created 100% remotely between the band’s tour dates, home studio in Wisconsin, and the Churko’s studio in Las Vegas.
“DOMINION is about the celebration of freedom, a liberation from fear – to be who we want to be, say what we want to say, believe what we want to believe,” Cooper says. “In some ways it’s a reminder of the God-given rights that we were born with. It’s time to regain some sort of control over our lives and not be a slave to fear. I hope this record is going to make people feel empowered, inspired, uplifted and want to rock their faces off!”
They’ll be doing just that when they headline Winter Jam 2022, kicking off on January 7 in Charleston, WV. For all Skillet tour info, visit Skillet.com.
SKILLET is one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century. The two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated, Pandora Billionaires Club members, multiplatinum rockers have an undying spirit that has humbly asserted and affirmed them as one of this generation’s most successful rock acts. However, as all classic underdog stories do, it happened quietly under the radar. By 2019, they not only garnered a pair of GRAMMY® Award nods and sold over 12 million albums worldwide, but they also took home a Billboard Music Award for the triple-platinum Awake. Its breakout single “Monster” remains “one of the most-streamed rock songs of all-time” with over 3 BILLION global audio streams. 2016’s Unleashed bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. Hitting #1 on Rock Radio, the lead single “Feel Invincible” cracked 643 million global audio streams and went platinum. Meanwhile, the gold certified Unleashed became their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum status. Their 2019 release Victorious included the top ten rock radio hit “Legendary,” which lived up to its name with over 108 million streams. To date, nine original tunes earned RIAA recognition in tandem with high-profile syncs by everyone from WWE and Marvel to ESPN and NFL. Between selling out arenas in 26 countries and four continents, the group performed on CONAN and graced the pages of USA Today and The New York Times, SKILLET debuted their first graphic novel, EDEN: A Skillet Graphic Novel with Z2 Comics, which became the publisher’s best-selling book of all time, followed by EDEN II: The Aftermath.
