Skillet's latest, AWAKE, continues to propel the incredible momentum the rock outfit has going for them with a blockbuster debut at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200, selling over 67,000 units and peaking at No. 1 on iTune's "Top Albums" chart and "Top Rock" chart. Already over 530k in scans in just 50 weeks (more than double that of the GOLD selling COMATOSE), AWAKE was Amazon.com's best selling Christian CD of 2009, and boasts the No. 4 mainstream Active Rock single in the country with "Monster," which was also AOL Music's No. 4 mainstream rock song of last year, and the No. 1 Christian CHR & Rock single, "Hero," which has been used all season long by the NFL in their, Sunday Night Football and NFL Weekend Kickoff promos.
Skillet has toured with the likes of mainstream megastars Creed, Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Seether and Flyleaf, and headlined a slew of major Christian festivals, all followed by solo tours that ranked within Pollstar's Concert Pulse Top 50 Tours. Along the way, the two-time Grammy®-nominated alternative rockers also scored seven consecutive number one Christian radio singles, a 2008 GMA Dove Award for "Rock Song of the Year," and a 2009 nomination for Artist of the Year. Along with a trio of singles on Billboard's Mainstream Rock charts, a pair of BMI Songwriting Awards, and being chosen as Reader's Poll favorites on several top ccm websites, they also released their first ever concert CD/DVD combo pack "Comatose Comes Alive."
Skillet has been nominated for a 2012 GMA Dove Award for "Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year" for the Song "Lucy".

Skillet Announces New Album for Spring 2013| Posted August 25, 2012
Skillet was originally expected to release their next studio album sometime in late 2012, but lead singer John Cooper confirmed on Twitter a few months ago that the band is taking a break with no touring during the summer. John, Korey, Jen, and Seth will hit the studio on October 1st, and have about 40 songs written so far. Later, John went on to estimate that the release date of this album will be sometime in May/April 2013. I just saw that there was no news on this in the comments area, so I'm hoping this will help you fellow fans out. There are currently no rumors for the album name, but we can expect the band to officially announce it sometime in early 2013 (January-February).

Glad to see a band reaching out to a generation of lost souls. My nephew has been listening to you for awhile and didn't even realize he was listening to Christian music until he heard one of your songs on a CD of mine....
