Skillet's John & Korey Cooper Talk About Rise, hosted by Meltdown
Posted 6/22/2013 9:00:00 PM

 

 

Hot on the heels of their last album, Awake, one of just three rock albums to be certified platinum in 2012, forming an improbable triumvirate with the Black Keys’ El Camino and Mumford & Sons’ Babel, Skillet are set to unleash their eagerly awaited follow-up album, Rise.

The band — lead vocalist/bassist John Cooper, guitarist/keyboardist Korey Cooper (John’s wife), drummer/duet partner Jen Ledger and newly minted lead guitarist Seth Morrison — continue to explore new terrain on Rise, working once again with produced by Howard Benson. The message is both spiritual and social, as Skillet reaches out anew to its growing and changing following.

“Rise is the story of a typical American teen coming into adulthood and facing the massive world problems,” says Cooper, who is deeply concerned about the erosion of belief in young people today, as well as their deeply felt desire to belong.

This interview features John and Korey Cooper giving an in-depth look at their new release in a conversation with Meltdown. Please note full versions of songs do not appear due to copyright restrictions.
