Tomorrow, April 3 at 10:45 am EST, multi-platinum rock band SKILLET will premier the new music video for their latest Active Rock single, "Save Me," on their YouTube Channel. Filmed last month while on tour in the Los Angeles area, the band is also inviting fans worldwide to join them for a Q&A to connect and talk about the song, video, and life amidst the crazy times we're all living in. SKILLET has over 800 million views on their YouTube channel.
About "Save Me," John Cooper stated, "This song is about the darker side of you that you are afraid to show people. 'If they only knew how messed up I am, would they still love me?' This song is about getting honest and asking for help, both spiritually and naturally speaking. We loved filming this video and how it turned out as well. The energy we were able to create visually really matches the intensity of the song."
While joining most of the world in isolating at home, John and Korey Cooper have been creating some acoustic performances for their fans of late and posting them on their social accounts. Last week they created a piano version of "Anchor," and this week they performed an unplugged version of the fan favorite "Whispers in the Dark," both of which have been incredbily popular.
One Victorious, 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 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.
