Skillet Releasing New Song Next Week, New Album in June

04/03/2013
.
The wait is almost over for Skillet fans. The band will be releasing a new song next week and have set a released date for their new studio album.

The band have set a June 25th release date for the new album, which they have entitled "Rise." The first single from the album, "Sick Of It," is set to be released digitally at iTunes and premiere at rock radio next Tuesday, April 9th.

The new album is the follow-up to the band's 2009 platinum release, "Awake." The band sent over word that the new album tells the story of a typical American teen coming into adulthood and trying to figure out who he is in a world riddled with problems both within and outside his control.

"The narrative idea happened after we had 10 or 11 of the songs chosen," says lead singer/bassist John Cooper. "As we recorded them, we started to realize that there was something going on—that the album was really telling a story. Realizing that, I knew we needed to make it as powerful as we could."
