Rockers Skillet have released additional details of the release of their new album ‘Victorious’. ‘Victorious’ Will be releases on Atlantic Records on August 2.
“‘Unleashed’ recharged us, and we returned to what we love about writing,” continues John. “It was tight and electronic hard rock. We wanted to keep the sound modern and pull in influences from hip-hop drums and keyboards, while staying riffy. ‘Victorious’ started there. Our confidence was sparked by the last record and all of the other projects. We were feeling prolific. We thought, ‘We can produce our own Skillet album.’ It lit a fire. Korey and I have produced in the past, but nothing quite like this. It’s a brand new season.”
Skillet’s first single for the Christian market, the melodic “Anchor”, will also feature a visualizer/lyric video and be offered as an instant-grat on June 14. The track will impact radio on July 19.
“I’ve been privileged to have worked with Skillet for the past 10 years and am constantly blown away by the music that John and Korey Cooper and this band create,” Pete Ganbarg, Atlantic Records president of A&R, said. “Every song on ‘Victorious’ is an example of what has made Skillet such an integral part of contemporary music for the past two decades. We are thrilled to get to share it with the world.”
