    Nashville, Tenn. (August 15, 2016) – GRAMMY-nominated rockers Skillet have cemented their place as one of rock’s most-successful with the release of Unleashed, debuting this week at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Album ChartUnleashed is the third album to debut in the top 5 and atop the Top Christian Albums Chart. Their previous two, Rise and Awake, debuted at #4 and #2 respectively. Unleashed also landed at #2 on the Billboard Top Albums Chart, #2 on the Digital Albums Chart and #3 on the Physical Albums Chart. The album shot to #1 on the iTunes Rock Albums chart and #2 on the Top Albums chart when it was released last Friday.

    "I am so blown away by the loyalty of our fans once again," shares John Cooper. "It is such a huge honor to keep making music that people resonate with. This week was more than we hoped for."

    Skillet’s performance on FOX & Friends All American Summer Concert Series will be the broadcast debut of their infectious active rock single, “Feel Invincible.” The single has already gained popularity and 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 Conference (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 video for the single has already been viewed over 7.8 million times and can be seen here:https://youtu.be/Qzw6A2WC5Qo.

    After praising their latest LP, People Magazine Online featured John and Korey Cooper in "Meet The Coopers: 5 Things to Know About the Band Skillet's Touring Family," an online feature that was shared thousands of times. "Stars" is currently 
    Top 5 at the BDS Christian Hot AC/CHR chart and #24 on the BDS National Christian Audience Chart. Featuring the album Loudwire called "instantly addictive," Skillet appears on the cover of the current CCM Magazine.

    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. Additional information about the tour is available on the band’s website: http://www.skillet.com/tour
    Skillet can also be found on Google Play and streaming on Spotify. The album is available on iTunesAmazon.com and music retailers worldwide.

    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 Billboard Music Award for the platinum-certified Awake. Their double-platinum single “Monster” is “the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015” with a total of 64 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 Today, New York Times, Revolver Loudwire, etc. and was recently certified gold by the RIAA.
