Multi-platinum and GRAMMY-nominated rockers Skillet are preparing new music! In a recent interview with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, John and Korey Cooper said they have written a whopping 53 new songs over the past 18 months.
"We're shooting for March for release, but it will probably be closer to summertime," the duo told JSOnline. "We're trying some new things, but all in all it still sounds like Skillet. The songs are very aggressive, very in-your-face.
They continued, "There's a little bit of 'keep up the fight' in this record. Some of that comes from the fact that so many people are saying that rock music is dead, and they're discounting really great rock bands who are still selling tickets. Two weeks ago, we were in New Jersey with Godsmack, and there were 18,000 people there. It was a massive event. People will always love rock music. It makes you feel something other music doesn't."
Just last month, Skillet garnered yet another hit as their No. 1 Active Rock single “Awake & Alive” received RIAA Platinum certification having sold over one million digital copies.
