""It's finally here! So excited for the fans to hear the full album! We put our hearts into the record and aimed to write songs people could easily relate to anywhere and everywhere. I hope the fans enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it,”," explains John Cooper.

The first single from Unleashed is the high-energy, album-opener “Feel Invincible.” The song has been used by the WWE during their Battleground Pay-Per-View, TBS’ E-League and Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports Awards. The song has also been featured in Rock Band. Also, “Feel Invincible” was recently chosen by the Atlantic Coast Conferecne (ACC) for use throughout the entire 2016-football season. The song will be the soundtrack for the opening video montage to lead into each week’s syndicated game reaching over 90 million TV households. This is the second time that Skillet and the ACC Network have teamed up. The song is quickly approaching the Top 10 on the Active Rock radio charts. The video for the single has been viewed over 6-million times and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/Qzw6A2WC5Qo.

Skillet will be embarking on a worldwide headline tour in the Fall.  The tour will feature Thousand Foot Krutch on the first half of the U.S. run and Sick Puppies will finish the second half of the tour. Devour The Day will be playing the entire tour. Akron, OH’s Red Sun Rising will provide support for dates in Europe and Russia.

Skillet has cemented its place as one of the 21st century’s most successful rock bands. Selling more than 11 million units worldwide, the Wisconsin quartet have received two GRAMMY® Award nominations and won a BillboardMusic Award for the platinum-certified Awake. Their double-platinum single “Monster” is “the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015” with a total of 57 million plays (and counting) on Spotify and would earn the distinction of becoming “the best-selling digital single in the history of Christian Music.”  2013’s Rise bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release, received resounding and eclectic acclaim from the likes of USA TodayNew York Times,Revolver Loudwire, etc. and was recently certified gold by the RIAA.
