    Nashville, TN (August 9, 2013) - Following several sell out shows in Russia in 2011, Skillet returned to country's Black Sea this week to play before over 35,000 fans at the Kubana Festival with System of a Down.   While on the other side of the planet, the Grammy® nominated and platinum selling rockers garnered their second No. 1 hit from their critically acclaimed project RISE as "American Noise" hit the top spot on the Christian Hot AC Chart.    "American Noise" follows their Top 10 Mainstream Active Rock and No. 1 Christian Rock single, "Sick of It."  RISE continues to be the No. 1 selling Christian album seven weeks after its release.

    Following a spectacular debut on CONAN and recent performances at several major Christian and mainstream festivals, Skillet will hit the road with Shinedown this weekend on the Carnival of Madness tour. Kicking off August 13, the tour will also feature the touted prodigy band of John Cooper, We As Human. They’ll follow by heading overseas for their first-ever tour with Nickelback, a month-long jaunt that will see Skillet playing Milan, Paris, Vienna, London, and many more.

    About Skillet:
    RISE follows the band's 2009 blockbuster, Awake, which was recently certified platinum for sales in excess of one million copies in the U.S. It’s worth noting that Skillet was the only active rock band to achieve platinum certification in 2012, and were one of only three rock bands (the other two being Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys) to strike platinum in 2012. RISE debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on Billboard's Top Rock, Hard Rock and Christian Albums Charts.

    Awake debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the magazine's Top Modern Rock/Alternative Albums Chart. In addition, the record hit No. 1 on the iTunes® Top Albums Chart, garnered three Billboard Music Awards and spawned four hit singles including the No. 1 Active Rock smash and gold-certified “Awake & Alive,” the gold-certified "Hero," "It's Not Me It's You" and the platinum-certified "Monster." "Monster" lived up to its name, selling more than a million copies and hitting Top 5 at Active Rock radio (the first in a string of multiple Top 5 active rock hits), while its companion video has generated over 47 million YouTube views. The hook-happy "Hero" was featured in season-long spots for NBC's NFL Sunday Night Football and served as the official theme song for WWE's Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View. The band toured endlessly in support, playing to sold-out crowds across the country, which earned them a spot on Pollstar's Concert Pulse Chart of the Top 50 Tours for fall of 2010. Awake followed the band’s 2006's gold-selling album, Comatose.

    Over the course of the past few years Skillet have sold more than two million units in the U.S. alone, racked up more than 150 million YouTube views and amassed a diehard following (dubbed Panheads) whose members number in the millions, including over 4 million on Facebook alone.
