2017 has been a landmark year of career milestones for rockers Skillet.
Building on the success of their critically acclaimed and commercially successful release Unleashed, Skillet will release Unleashed Beyond, a deluxe version of their acclaimed 2016 release, on November 17. Unleashed Beyond boasts eight bonus tracks; five brand new unreleased songs, including “Breaking Free (feat. Lacey Sturm),” 2 remixes and the film version of “Stars” as featured in the motion picture The Shack, which hit No. 1 on Christian Hot AC this spring. Also included in the mix is Skillet’s current Christian radio chart-topper “Lions,” which is currently No. 1 for the sixth straight week on Hot AC. The deluxe edition is currently available for pre-order on all Skillet tour stops as well as via their webstore
Skillet has sold 11 million units worldwide, closed out 2016 with seven mainstream rock and 10 Christian year end chart placements and were once again the Top Christian Streaming Songs Artist of 2016, but 2017 marks the first time the band has topped Billboard’s Top Christian Songs Chart.
2016 has most definitely been a great year for Skillet’s hit track “Feel Invincible”: The track recently went to #1 on both the Active (Mediabase) and Mainstream (BDS) Rock charts, and has made history by spending 19 weeks at the top of the Christian Rock chart, the most weeks ever since the chart’s inception on Billboard.
2016 is proving to be a milestone year for Skillet and 2017 is shaping up to continue the trend. Coming off the band’s most successful European headline run to date that included numerous sold-out performances, Skillet will embark on the second U.S. leg of The Unleashed Tour.
GRAMMY® nominated and multi-platinum selling rockers Skillet are celebrating their first No. 1 single on the Mainstream Rock Chart with their anthemic hit “Feel Invincible” off their latest project, UNLEASHED (Atlantic). Announced first to 500,000 fans via Facebook Live, the track, previously No. 1 at Christian rock as well, marks the band’s sixth Top 10 single at mainstream rock radio, and sets them apart as the first act from the Christian genre to top the chart. Previously, “Awake and Alive” from 2009’s AWAKE climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Active Rock chart, which was discontinued in 2013, along with “Monster,” “Not Gonna Die,” “Sick of It” and “It’s Not Me It’s You” all reaching top 10 or higher there as well.
After a popular sit-down with the GRAMMY® nominated rockers, People.com is exclusively premiering the new music video for “Stars” from the band’s chart-topping album UNLEASHED (Aug. 5). The announcement comes shortly after the hit single reached No. 1 on the BDS Hot AC/CHR chart. “Stars” follows in the footsteps of the band’s chart-climbing Active Rock and No. 1 Christian Rock track “Feel Invincible” whose music video has gained over ten million views on YouTube to-date.
