Skillet Victorious Limited Vinyl LP


Every victory merits a theme song, and victory is exactly what multi-platinum, two-time GRAMMY® nominee rockers Skillet hail as they announce the soundtrack to triumph on their tenth full-length album, Victorious due August 2nd. The follow-up to the RIAA Gold-certified Unleashed (their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum certification in the US), the new project continues to propel the band’s position as one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century.

“Victorious perfectly describes how the record makes me feel,” affirms lead singer John Cooper. “You wake up, face your own demons every day, and never give in. There’s an introspective side to it. We might’ve commented on the world explicitly on previous albums. This one is about looking inward. Perhaps, it’s because I’ve gotten a little older, and I’ve accepted struggle as part of the journey.”

Coupled with the production strides made in the last full-length studio offering, John and wife/guitarist/keyboardist Korey took the reins for the bulk of production on Victorious—a career first.

“Unleashed recharged us, and we returned to what we love about writing,” continues John. “It was tight and electronic hard rock. We wanted to keep the sound modern and pull in influences from hip-hop drums and keyboards, while staying riff-y. Victorious started there. Our confidence was sparked by the last record and all of the other projects. We were feeling prolific. We thought, ‘We can produce our own Skillet album.’ It lit a fire. Korey and I have produced in the past, but nothing quite like this. It’s a brand new season.”

Of lead track Legendary, Cooper goes on “The lyrics are a call to make your life matter. You’re realizing you have a chance for your life to count every day. In a sense, we’re all destined to be forgotten, so live the way you want and don’t turn your back on who you are. I drew the sentiment from my own career. We’ve always put our heads down and pushed forward when confronted with adversity.”

Alongside the album Skillet return to the UK in December for a show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
