Skillet Garners Another No. 1 Single; Announces New Tour

Platinum and GRAMMY®-nominated rockers Skillet are back on U.S. soil after firmly making their mark overseas following a massive European fall tour with Nickelback where crowds demanded encores, and six back-to-back sold out headline shows in Russia, including over 6,000 screaming fans in Moscow.

Just as the band boarded flights from Kiev, Ukraine to the U.S. they heard the news that their current single from their best-seller RISE (Atlantic/Word), “Not Gonna Die” held onto the No. 1 spot on the Christian Rock charts for the third week, is Top 20 and climbing on mainstream Active Rock (their sixth consecutive Active Rock hit), and their Hot AC single, “Fire and Fury” is Top 10.

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.
