Skillet has released a new official video for the song “Legendary”. The song is taken from the their tenth full-length album, “Victorious”, which will be released on August 2 via Atlantic.
Regarding the lyrical theme of “Legendary”, John said: “The general message of ‘Legendary’ is to make your life count. You’re going to have a lot of hard things in your life. Sometimes it will get you down, but you need to make your life count. You are only here for so long on earth, so every day fight to be legendary.”
Cooper said the song also holds a special place in his heart for another more personal reason. “For me, what this song is about is it’s to all the people who said that Skillet would never make it,” he said. “They said we were too Christian. We were too pretty. We had too many girls in the band, too many keyboards. It’s too musical. It’s too this or too that and 23 years later and 10 albums later, we’re very unlikely people to still be doing music.”
Skillet will headline a tour this August joined by Sevendust, Pop Evil, and Devour The Day.
The track listing for “Victorious” is as follows:
02. You Ain’t Ready
04. This Is The Kingdom
05. Save Me
06. Rise Up
07. Terrify The Dark
08. Never Going Back
