Multi-Platinum rock band SKILLET 's frontman John Cooper will be releasing his first book titled Awake & Alive to Truth in December. Fans can pre-order the book in both hardcover and softcover here.
The book description from John's official website reads: "Chaos. Violence. Confusion. Anxiety. How do we know what's true when there are so many differing voices telling us what to do? After traveling the world for 23 years in a rock band, John L. Cooper has noticed one consistent issue: people are desperately confused. Awake and Alive To Truth tackles the reigning philosophies of our day of post-modernism, relativism, and the popular view of the goodness of man-and combats these viewpoints by standing on the absolute truth of the Word of God.
Awake and Alive To Truth answers some of the most asked questions in modern culture. We will go on a journey through some of the author's personal stories, the doctrine of original sin, the authority of Scripture, the danger of trusting your emotions, and end with the greatest news possible: God wants to rescue you from the chaos and the darkness and bring you into His glorious light."
John has been an active voice in cultural and controversial topics this past year on socials and this book definitely feels like an extension of that voice.
On Victorious, one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated, Pandora Billionaires Club recipients, multiplatinum Wisconsin quartet SKILLET-John Cooper [lead vocals/bass], Korey Cooper [guitar/keys], Jen Ledger [drums/vocals], and Seth Morrison [lead guitar]-write the soundtrack to triumph. An undying spirit humbly asserted and affirmed the band 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. Going #1 on Rock Radio, the lead single "Feel Invincible" cracked 150 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.
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 on four continents, the group performed on CONAN and graced the pages of USA Today and The New York Times, to name a few. In 2018 alone, the band clocked 1 billion streams. This momentum continues on their 2019 tenth full-length, Victorious. With the bulk produced by Korey and John, it lives up to its name for Skillet as their most triumphant body of work yet. On top of Victorious, Skillet debuted their first graphic novel, EDEN: A Skillet Graphic Novel with Z2 Comics, which has become the publisher's best-selling book of all time.
