Nashville, TN (Aug. 2, 2019)
Lauded with words like “epic” (Cryptic Rock), “majestic sonic roller coaster” (RocknLoad), “dynamic and heavy” (Riff), “emotionally engaging” and “aptly named” (Plugged In), Skillet’s much anticipated new album Victorious is available today, entering iTunes album chart at No. 1. The single “Legendary” is climbing the top 20 active rock charts, and “Anchor,” the newly unveiled Christian music radio single, are housed on the 12 track LP.
“… the band has mastered its formula, again delivering the kind of positive, stadium-ready rock anthems.”
–USA Today/Journal Sentinel
“Victorious has recurring themes of fighting through adversity and not giving up.” –Loudwire
“a 12-track serving of fist-pumping guitar glory…” –The Tennessean
“…Follows the dynamic, pounding rhythms their fans adore.” —Billboard

Preceding Victorious’ arrival is the platinum certification of “Feel Invincible” (Unleashed) and the gold certification of “Not Gonna Die” (Rise). Skillet was surprised with plaque presentations last week during appearances on FOX & Friends All American Summer Concert Series and AOL Build. Victorious serves as follow-up to the RIAA Gold-certified album Unleashed—their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum or double-platinum certification.
Skillet will hit the road for two co-headlining U.S. fall tours, kicking off August 11 with Sevendust (featuring Pop Evil), followed by a 21 city trek with Alter Bridge. November 6 marks a European headlining jaunt throughout the remainder of the year, much of which is already sold out, including stops in London, Paris, Hamburg and Budapest.
