    Hey Panheads, rockers and friends!!

    It's Jen here!

    Well well well... it's been a little crazy over here in Skillet world.
    The beginning of the year was awesome! We went overseas to Japan, Ozzy and New Zealand! Met loads of cool people and escaped the Wisconsin winter for a while! The crowds were amazing, it felt like a vacation and we all just had a fantastic time!

    Of course many of you know Ben is leaving, so we've also been busy over the last few months searching for the right guy to replace him... his name is ????????? (Jk..we don't know yet either! :) All that to say things are changing and it's gonna be an exciting new season to start with Skillet! (And plus, now I'm not the 'new one' anymore!... Perhaps I'll get to boss this guy around!!;) I kid. I kid.

    We've started the Avalanche tour now and we're having such a great time! The other bands are killer players! It's been loads of fun watching them perform and getting to know them... but best of all, two words for you:
    Four square.

    This tour has involved hours and hours off mindless fun playing this wonderful game!! (If you have never tried it-it's AWESOME!) The guys from Theory and especially Halestorm have pure talent and sportsmanship! Haha!:)

    This last week has been especially fun for me cause my two big brothers from England are visiting!

    Friends+family+four square+rockin=a great week for Jen!:)

    Anyways, all that to say things are going crazy but well. :) Thanks everyone for all your support to Skillet over the last few months. You guys are the greatest fans.

    Hope to see you at a show soon!

    Take care

    Your mate,

    Jen:)

Hello Jen, I'm a drummer at my school and I showed one of the other drummers a video of you and he said that he is and will be better then you for the rest of his life. I told him that he was just upset that a girl was better then him, and it is true because we are both girl drummers and we are both better then he will ever be.(p.s I think you ROCK)

I have very recently started listening to your music and am already addicted. You and the rest of the band have a great image as well as a wonderful message. I just bought 'Awake' the other day and can't stop listening to it. I wish you all continued success and look forward to seeing you in Victorville next month.

Thank you Jen! If you need a guitar player, i'm 17 and i play guitar since 2004! Haha It was a joke, I know I have no chances: I'm french and I live in France. I make a music video of Hero with my band. So I hope you'll see it when it will finish and you'll enjoy it! Good luck to Skillet! I love you! Best regards.
