Skillet enjoys a fruitful year, announces 2014 U.S tour

2013 saw the impressive comeback of Christian rock band Skillet. Over the course of the past few years, Grammy nominated and platinum selling rock band Skillet has sold more than two million units in the U.S., racked up more than 150 million YouTube views and amassed a diehard following (dubbed Panheads) whose members number over four million on Facebook alone.

Skillet did not just drop a new album this year; they dominated Billboard’s chart, as well as iTunes charts. Their 2013 release RISE debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Rock and Christian charts, which led to a No. 1 radio hit for "American Noise" and "Sick Of It." RISE also gave Skillet their late night television debut on CONAN. Their current single from their bestseller RISE “Not Gonna Die” is also doing pretty well on the charts.

Skillet are back to U.S after a very successful European tour with rock band Nickelback where crowds demanded encores, and six back-to-back sold out headline shows in Russia, including over 6,000 screaming fans in Moscow. After such an extended time of international touring, Skillet is looking forward to co-headlining The Roadshow, which kicks off January 9, 2014 in Sacramento, CA., and have also just announced they’ll continue to tour with co-headliners Third Day on 20 more domestic dates throughout the spring. Starting February 27 in Toledo, OH., Skillet and Third Day will hit the road with an all star line-up including Mandisa, Brandon Heath, Jamie Grace, Peter Furler and We As Human.
