Last September, SKILLET released an epic deluxe project, "Victorious: The Aftermath" (Atlantic). The collection featured all twelve original tracks from 2019's "Victorious" album, plus eight additional songs, including two previously unreleased cuts, and five reimagined songs. One of the brand new tracks was "Dead Man Walking", a favorite of lead singer John Cooper, for which the band released a "Marvel-esque" lyric video.
SKILLET's tenth studio album, "Victorious", was released in August 2019 via Atlantic.
SKILLET's previous four releases — from 2006's "Comatose" to 2016's "Unleashed" — have been certified at least gold by the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA). SKILLET's 2009 album "Awake" has gone double platinum.
SKILLET has enjoyed success on both the secular rock and Christian charts, with four consecutive No. 1 albums on the latter — including "Victorious". SKILLET has also had 27 Top 5 hits on the Christian Rock charts.
