On February 16, 2015 Skillet announced they were writing material for a new album with recording to begin in June with a potential release in the late half of 2015 or early 2016. On May 20, 2016 the album's title, Unleashed, was announced and is to be released on August 5, 2016 on Atlantic Records as stated in Wikipedia.
“I wanted to make an album that could make people feel the music,” said Skillet’s John Cooper. “I always aim to write songs to which people can relate, but this time I wanted to see not only how the songs would connect lyrically, but also how they’d connect musically.”
The band is kicking things off with an anthemic rocker titled “Feel Invincible” and you can hear and see the song in the lyric video above. Other songs highlighted in the press release announcing the album include the memorable album closer “The Resistance,” and standout cuts “Back From the Dead,” “Stars” and “Out of Hell.”
As stated, Skillet’s Unleashed will drop on Aug. 5, but you can go ahead and pre-order the disc via Amazon, iTunes and GooglePlay. Skillet will return to the road on May 28 in Denmark, rolling through Europe until early July, after which they’ll return stateside. See all of their dates via their website. via Loudwire.
