Skillet to Release "Rise" on June 25

Skillet will release Rise on June 25.
The album is a gripping coming-of-age narrative that stands as their first concept album—though lead singer/bassist John Cooper says it wasn't premeditated. The album tells the story of a typical American teen coming into adulthood and trying to figure out who he is in a world riddled with problems both within and outside his control.
That's an age-old battle, and we can't wait to hear how Skillet address is in the space of their record.
"The narrative idea happened after we had 10 or 11 of the songs chosen," he says. "As we recorded them, we started to realize that there was something going on—that the album was really telling a story. Realizing that, I knew we needed to make it as powerful as we could."
