Sight of Sound jumped on a phone call with John Cooper of Skillet last week to talk all things touring, their recent release titled ‘Unleashed,’ and more. The band is currently out on their first US headline tour in quite a few years as John told us and will be eventually wrapping their year to Pennsylvania in about 2 weeks to the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA.
Skillet has a lot of history here in the state playing festivals such as Musikfest and even hitting the area locally over the past few years on Winter Jam and co-headline run with Third Day. Their album ‘Unleashed’ marked a noted return for the band as it shot up the charts to No. 1 and No. 2 rankings on almost every Billboard Chart here in the United States upon it’s release. Listen to our interview with John Cooper for more on the success that ‘Unleashed’ has brought the band, their creative process for the album, & what is in store for fans coming out to shows on this tour :
