American mutli-platinum rock band Skillet has received their 10th Billboard Music Award nomination with their 2019 project, Victorious, receiving a nod for Top Christian Album. The show will air October 14th at 8/7c on NBC.
Skillet is also teaming up with Billboard to raise money for The Red Cross with a Billboard Live At-Home performance tomorrow, September 24 at 1pm EST. Fans can watch and comment during the event on Billboard’s Facebook page.
Skillet recently released their Deluxe project, Victorious: The Aftermath (Atlantic). The collection features all twelve original tracks from Victorious, plus eight additional tracks, including two brand new unreleased songs, and 5 reimagined songs.
Two original Victorious tracks are also getting traction as “Legendary” has been tapped once again for the WWE’s Monday Night Raw theme song this fall, and “Terrify the Dark” is currently impacting Christian CHR/Hot AC radio.
Still to come this fall is graphic novel Eden II: The Aftermath, once again pairing Random Shock Studios with Skillet frontman John Cooper and his Eden artist Chris Hunt.
Available in both the standard and a limited deluxe edition, Skillet’s return to the post-apocalyptic world of Eden, as established in their 2019 graphic novel debut of the same name, is an exciting one for the band as well as their publisher, Z2 Comics.
The original book became their best-selling graphic novel of all time. According to Cooper, Aftermath promises “more action, more surprises, more suspense.”
This year’s nomination makes Skillet’s 10th Billboard Music Awards nomination.
