|Nashville, TN….February 8, 2022 – 12x-platinum and GRAMMY-nominated rock band SKILLET’s DOMINION (Atlantic) is making an impact following its top spot debut on iTunes three weeks ago. Their 11th studio project, it has already amassed over 33 million global album streams to date, and a top 20 Active Rock radio track with “Surviving The Game,” (which has garnered over 16 million global streams, and whose music video has over 4 million views). Today, “Refuge,” the band’s first Christian AC radio release from the album, accumulated over 20 radio adds, the most ever for Skillet in a debut week at the format. Stations supporting the single include include WPOZ/Orlando, WFHM/Cleveland, WBVM/Tampa, and KZTH/Oklahoma City. Hear lead singer John Cooper discuss the track here. Upon release, critics lauded the DOMINION for its “‘dynamic,’ ‘incredibly triumphant,’ and ‘relentlessly, powerfully uplifting’ songs.” Today, American Songwriter published their recent chat with Cooper about the recording and songwriting process against the extenuating circumstances and implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and how “the album layers expressive textures atop a scorching soundscape to bolster the storytelling.” “Lyrically,” they continued, “this album is a rallying cry to those seeking hope amidst the haze of these uncertain times. Both poetic and unapologetically candid, the songwriting anchors the album. Slow-burning at times, and raucous when necessary, the lyrical messaging presents a steady presence of strength for those who need it most.”|
Cooper joined FOX & Friends this past Saturday to discuss the themes surrounding DOMINION, the celebration of freedom and liberation from fear, and tomorrow will launch a 5-Day Bible Study on the Dominion of Christ with YouVersion, accessible here. Cooper will also join a panel discussion during this year’s annual National Religious Broadcaster’s (NRB) Convention, disussing “Engaging A Hostile Culture” on March 10. Skillet is currently on the road headlining Winter Jam 2022. For all Skillet tour info, visit Skillet.com.

SKILLET is one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century. The two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated, Pandora Billionaires Club members, multiplatinum rockers have an undying spirit that has humbly asserted and affirmed them as one of this generation’s most successful rock acts. However, as all classic underdog stories do, it happened quietly under the radar. By 2019, they not only garnered a pair of GRAMMY® Award nods and sold over 12 million albums worldwide, but they also took home a Billboard Music Award for the double-platinum Awake. Its breakout single “Monster” remains “one of the most-streamed rock songs of all-time” with over 3 BILLION global audio streams. 2016’s Unleashed bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. Hitting #1 on Rock Radio, the lead single “Feel Invincible” cracked 643 million global audio streams and went platinum. Meanwhile, the gold-certified Unleashed became their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum status. Their 2019 release Victorious included the top ten rock radio hit “Legendary,” which lived up to its name with over 108 million streams. To date, nine original tunes earned RIAA recognition in tandem with high-profile syncs by everyone from WWE and Marvel to ESPN and NFL. Between selling out arenas in 26 countries and four continents, the group performed on CONAN and graced the pages of USA Today and The New York Times, Skillet debuted their first graphic novel, EDEN: A Skillet Graphic Novel with Z2 Comics, which became the publisher’s best-selling book of all time, followed by EDEN II: The Aftermath.
