Skillet will be releasing their new album “Collide” on Lava Records (previously signed to Ardent Records) on May 25th.

“We have been waiting for the door to open for a deal like this for about six years now, and this opportunity with LAVA is a definite answer to prayer,” comments Skillet lead singer John Cooper. “We truly desire to get the message and our music out to an audience that needs to hear a positive word in today's violent world. Lava has been awesome to work with so far, and even though we have only been partnering with them for a short while, I couldn't be any happier with how things are going between us. We look forward to what the future will bring!”

The band consists of married couple John Cooper (vocals, bass) & Korey Cooper (guitar, keyboard), Ben Kasica (guitar), and Lori Peters (drum). Together, Skillet has performed over 170 live dates in the last year alone, drawing thousands of people all across America.

Skillet is currently on tour now with 12 Stones and Pillar through May 6th. For up to date information, tour dates and more go to
