Skillet are coming off the most successful album of their career and if they fail to meet the bar set by the last disc it won’t be through a lack of trying.
Singer John Cooper revealed, “Before we started work on the last album, I brought in full demos of 36 songs. This time, we had 72 at the beginning. So there was a lot of cutting down we had to do. Also, I’m not sure we even expected ‘Awake’ to do as well as it did, but since it did perform so well, now there is this sort of pressure to do it again. But that’s okay. I’ve enjoyed writing from my heart and from my faith and I think the new music is a really honest look at where Skillet is today.”
Though a firm release date and album title have yet to be revealed, Skillet expect to return to the road this spring. Cooper says the group are currently deciding on what the lead single and their video plans will be.
