Two rock of rock music’s finest heavyweights are hitting the road together this summer! SKILLET and SEVENDUST will embark on the co-headline Victorious War Tour this August and September. Pop Evil will support, while Devour the Day will open the shows. The tour kicks off on August 11th in Memphis, TN and will include a stop in Cincinnati, OH at PNC Pavilion on Friday, August 16th.
“We’re thrilled to be touring with Sevendust,” says Skillet frontman John Cooper. “The lineup is incredible and I think the fans will be very happy. We can’t wait to play our new songs on the tour and connect with the Panheads out on the road.” Skillet will be performing songs from their new project, set to be announced on May 7, during this run.
“We are looking so forward to touring with Skillet,” echoes Sevendust vocalist Lajon Witherspoon. “What an amazing band — these shows are going to be amazing. We can’t wait to share the stages with them.”
Skillet has cemented their place as one of the 21st century’s most successful rock bands. Selling more than 12 million units worldwide, the Wisconsin quartet have received two GRAMMY® Award nominations and won a Billboard Music Award for the now double-platinum certified Awake. Their double-platinum single “Monster” was “the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015” and currently has over 182 million plays (and counting) on Spotify, earning the distinction of becoming “the best-selling digital single in the history of Christian Music.” It continues to reign atop Billboard’s Christian Streaming Songs Year-End Chart. Their latest album, the RIAA Gold certified Unleashed, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and houses the RIAA Gold Certified “Feel Invincible,” which went to No. 1 on the Rock Radio chart. Unleashed is the fourth consecutive Skillet record to receive certification of either gold, platinum or double platinum. Nine of Skillet’s songs have received RIAA distinction coinciding with use by such powerhouses as WWE, Marvel, ESPN and the NFL to name a few. The band has been featured on Conan, USA Today, The New York Times and more. The multi-platinum selling band garnered over a billion worldwide streams in 2018 worldwide.
In 1994, Sevendust first forged a familial tie amongst each other that translated into one of the most diehard audiences in the game. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated gold-certified hard rock outfit only grows stronger. For their twelfth full-length and first release for Rise Records All I See Is War, the quintet—Lajon Witherspoon [lead vocals], Clint Lowery [lead guitar, backing vocals], John Connolly [rhythm guitar, backing vocals], Vince Hornsby [bass], and Morgan Rose [drums]—did the best thing they could possibly do to combat all of the division in the streets and on social media; they went and made a Sevendust record—just bigger, ballsier, and bolder than before. A trifecta of now-classic gold albums—Sevendust , Home , and Animosity — ignited their journey. Known as an equally intense and unforgettable live force, they’ve consistently packed houses around the world and decimated stages everywhere from Rock on the Range and Woodstock to OZZfest and Shiprocked! 2015’s Kill The Flaw represented a high watermark. Bowing at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, it scored their highest debut on the respective chart since 2010 and marked their fifth consecutive Top 10 on the Top Rock Albums Chart and third straight Top 3 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart. Most impressively, the lead single “Thank You” garnered a nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” at the 2016 GRAMMY® Awards, a career first.
