2017 has been a landmark year of career milestones for rockers Skillet.
Skillet has kept sizzling at rock radio since it released its 10th studio album, UNLEASHED, in August 2016. Billboard is exclusively premiering the lyric video supporting their third mainstream radio single from the record, “The Resistance.” The song was just rolled out to mainstream rock radio and is currently being featured on iHeartRadio’s “New Rock Weekly” playlist!
Less than a month after being released to radio stations nationwide, Skillet’s “Lions” has already trekked to No. 6 on the Christian Hot AC chart while the newly released song is currently No. 29 on the Christian Airplay chart. Air 1 exclusively unveiled the lyric video for the powerful track from their ninth full-length album, Unleashed (Aug. 2016).
Spearheading the effort to merge the two worlds of comics and music, Marvel Entertainment’s Marvel Playback opens up conversation with some of music’s biggest names. GRAMMY® nominated Skillet’s John Cooper joined Marvel’s Playback to speak about his love for comics, and the lessons he’s learned from their stories and heroes.
Skillet’s “Back From the Dead” serves as the musical backdrop for Marvel Comics’ latest comic book series, Monsters Unleashed!, trailer. The track, which is top 20 on the Active Rock Building, Active Rock Rolling and Active Rock Published Charts, is found on their chart-topping album Unleashed. Frontman & lifelong Marvel fan John Cooper, alongside his bandmates were featured on “This Week in Marvel” podcast, recorded at Marvel’s Headquarters in New York City.
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.
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.
