SKILLET —John Cooper [lead vocals/bass], Korey Cooper [guitar/keys], Jen Ledger [drums/vocals], and Seth Morrison [lead guitar] — write the soundtrack to triumph. An undying spirit humbly asserted and affirmed the band as one of this generation’s most successful rock acts. However, as all classic underdog stories do, it happened quietly under the radar. By 2019, they not only garnered a pair of GRAMMY® Award noms and sold over 12 million albums worldwide, but they also took home a Billboard Music Award for the double-platinum Awake. Their breakout single “Monster” remains “one of the most-streamed rock songs of all-time” with over 3 billion global audio streams. 2016’s Unleashed bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. Going #1 on Rock Radio, the lead single “Feel Invincible” cracked 150 million global audio streams and went platinum. Meanwhile, the gold-certified Unleashed became their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum status. To date, nine original tunes earned RIAA recognition in tandem with high-profile syncs by everyone from WWE and Marvel to ESPN and NFL. Between selling out arenas on four continents, the group performed on CONAN and graced the pages of USA Today and The New York Times. Skillet’s graphic novel, EDEN: A Skillet Graphic Novel with Z2 Comics, has become the publisher’s best-selling book of all time. Skillet’s follow up graphic novel, Eden II: The Aftermath is out now.
