SKILLET_SOCIAL
(New York, NY – December
13, 2016) –
2016 is proving to be a
milestone year for Skillet and 2017 is shaping up to continue the trend. Coming
off the band’s most successful European headline run to date that included
numerous sold-out performances, Skillet will embark on the second U.S. leg of The
Unleashed Tour
. The 26-city tour will kick off on February 8th
in Clifton Park, NY and will make stops in Philadelphia, PA; Spokane, WA; Los
Angeles, CA and Denver, CO to name a few. The tour wraps on March 24th
in Little Rock, AR and is a continuation of the band’s celebrated U.S. run that
wrapped up last October. Sick Puppies and Devour The Day will be support on
these new dates. An exclusive presale for The Panheads (The Official Skillet
Fan Club) will go live on Wednesday, December 14th.  Tickets
and VIP Packages including an opportunity to meet the band will be available
and fans can sign up for the fan club at: http://www.skillet.com/become-a-member.
Public on sale for all shows will be Friday, December 16th and
ticket links can be found at: http://www.skillet.com/tour.
Skillet will be touring
in support of their latest album Unleashed. The 12-track,
critically acclaimed album is available via all physical and digital retailers
nationwide. The debut single “Feel Invincible” recently went to #1 on both the
Active (Mediabase) and Mainstream (BDS) Rock charts. The video for the single
has been viewed over 21 million times on YouTube (https://youtu.be/Qzw6A2WC5Qo)
and streamed over 16 million times on Spotify (www.smarturl.it/StreamSkillet).
Skillet will also be
making the rounds throughout the U.S. festivals this Spring. The band has
already been announced for Carolina Rebellion on Sunday, May 7th
performing alongside Avenged Sevenfold, The Offspring, Volbeat and Seether
amongst others that day.  Skillet will also be at this year’s Rock On
The Range
festival the weekend of May 19th – May 21st.
Tickets for these festival dates are already on sale.
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 and won a Billboard Music Award
for the platinum-certified Awake. Their double-platinum single “Monster”
is “the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015” with a total of 57 million
plays (and counting) on Spotify and would earn the distinction of becoming “the
best-selling digital single in the history of Christian Music.”  2013’s Rise
bowed at #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.
