Skillet announces that their next album called Victorious hits the streets on August 2, 2019. Lead singer John Cooper says he and his and bandmate Korey Cooper produced most of the record themselves…a band first. John says they wanted to put out an album with a lot of emotion in it…one that makes you want to pump your fist in the air at a concert. One of the first radio releases “Legendary”…which is already Blasting on TheBlast.FM…is about this: John says people had been warning him for years that “Skillet needs to stop talking about its faith or it’ll hurt your radio airplay”. John said “No, we’re not going to do that.” They kept on talking and singing about Jesus Christ! (Skillet’s first mainstream radio release, Savior, back in 2003, was shunned by most mainstream Rock/Active rock/Alternative radio programmers…probably because the lyrics made them nervous and/or they were afraid to play a song with such bold Christian lyrics on a secular rock radio format). But Skillet’s secular star rose, nonetheless, and all these years later, Skillet is still standing. John says “Legendary” deals with that very topic.
