12x platinum rockers SKILLET recently returned from Europe after a summer trek of eight countries, playing in front of 300,000 including Austria, France, Italy, Switzerland and the UK. This was the band's first trip back since their 2020 tour dates had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. Skillet has amassed a rabid international fanbase throughout their career, selling out arenas in 26 countries and four continents. Talking about their return, lead singer John Cooper remarked, "It was actually a bit emotional. Before covid we toured Europe almost every year, so to be back was just amazing. International travel isn't what it used to be, ha ha, but we had a fantastic time - these crowds were more than ready to rock, and we can't wait to go back."
Adding to their growing list of RIAA certifications, the band returned to U.S. soil to find their Comatose album had garnered platinum certification, while the track "The Last Night" was certified gold. These follow last fall's triple-platinum status of their landmark album Awake, and hit tracks “Awake & Alive,” going double-platinum, “Hero,” triple-platinum, and “Monster,” already one of the most-streamed rock songs in history, hiting 5x platinum status.
Guitarist Seth Morrison has also recently announced a new partnership with Westminster Effects to create the 2716 Seth Morrison Signature Distortion pedal, available here.0News
