Skillet has cemented its place as one of the 21st century’s most successful rock bands. Selling more than 11 million units worldwide, the Wisconsin quartet have received two GRAMMY® Award nominations amidst a host of other nods and honors. Comatose (2007) saw RIAA platinum certification, with a recent RIAA Gold certification of the single, followed by their platinum-certified release of Awake in 2009 which won the multi-platinum selling group a Billboard Music Award. Their double-platinum single “Monster” is “the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015” with nearly 100 million plays on Spotify to date, earning the distinction of becoming “the best-selling digital single in the history of Christian Music.” 2013’s Rise bowed at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release and received resounding and eclectic acclaim from the likes of USA Today, New York Times, Revolver, Loudwire and more. Their ninth and most recent LP, Unleashed, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and continues to make waves with hits including “Feel Invincible,” “Stars,” “Back From The Dead” and “Lions.”
