Zombie Inspired Video Can Be Seen Here:
Band Currently On A Headline Tour In Support Of Latest Album Unleashed
(New York, NY – March 15, 2017) – Hot on the heels of their #1 Active Rock single ”Feel Invincible,” Skillet have released a video for the follow-up track from the band’s latest critically-acclaimed album, Unleashed. “Back From The Dead” premiered exclusively on Nerdist.com (http://nerdist.com/skillet-punch-zombies-in-the-face-in-back-from-the-dead-premiere/) yesterday. The video tells the story of the band escaping from a testing facility and being chased by hordes of zombies. The “Back From The Dead” video gives a nod back to the band’s “Monster” video (https://youtu.be/1mjlM_RnsVE) from 2009 that has been viewed over 183-million times on YouTube.
“Back From The Dead” was directed by Roland Bingaman and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/JsbqTHift_8. The zombie-inspired clip showcases the band’s love of the undead and horror as John Cooper explained to Nerdist.com:
“The first zombie film I saw was 28 Days Later, which I loved. The band watches The Walking Dead religiously as well. I am a fan of comics, supernatural stories, and horror in general. That comes across throughout the video.”
Skillet has been touring in support of their latest album Unleashed. The current headline run will wrap on March 24th in Little Rock, AR. Skillet will also be making the rounds throughout the U.S. festivals this Spring. The band has already been announced on 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 years Rock On The Range festival performing on May 20th alongside Korn, The Offspring, Alter Bridge and Papa Roach to name a few. The band was just announced as part of the upcoming Korn/Stone Sour summer tour as well. Tickets for all these shows are already on sale and more information can be found at http://www.skillet.com/tour.
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 TodayNew York TimesRevolverLoudwire, and more.
