Certifications continue to roll in as Skillet gears up for the debut of their newest Victorious (Aug. 2, Atlantic Record). The multi-platinum selling super group joined Pandora’s Billionaires club with over two billion streams. The rarity is reserved for those totaling over a billion spins on the popular platform throughout an artist’s career. The distinction places them in the company of other Pandora Billionaires like John Legend, Fleetwood Mac, Keith Urban and more.
“Skillet is without peer in the world of fist-pumping, faith-informed rock, a rare kind of band that shatters stereotypes and marketing plans, while tapping into emotional DNA of people from all walks of life, believers and skeptics alike,” shares Pandora’s Programming Curator Melissa Riddle Chalos . “It’s phenomenal to see the success of a band that, 23 years in, continues to delivers hope on a sonically relevant scale.”
Skillet’s No. 1 Rock Hit, “Feel Invincible” reached new heights recently as it scored RIAA Platinum Certification. The song is found on their last album, the RIAA Gold Certified, Unleashed.
In anticipation of their tenth LP, Skillet is unveiling two more instant grat songs – “Anchor” and “Save Me” – on all streaming platforms today. Billboard originally announced the brand new 12 track collection from the multi-platinum selling group. The first single, “Legendary,” is impacting rock radio and has amassed nearly 7 million views on YouTube. “Anchor” will impact Christian radio.
Starting Aug. 11, Skillet is joining Sevendust on tour through Sept. 7 followed by their European tour kicking off on Nov. 6. For the latest, visit www.Skillet.com.
