    Time for a new Walmart Soundcheck session, this time with Skillet. Check out the special live, acoustic set and their interview where they discuss their ninth album Rise.

    "We are a hard rock band. What Skillet does is we combine the very aggressive sounds and aggressive performances with...almost like pop song structures," said the band.

    Also, the band shared, "The idea for the album Rise came from everyday events that all of us watched on TV. There's always another tragic thing happening but I wanted to make a record that people could rock out to but would also say yes, all these terrible things are happening, but let's find that we can rise above all of this stuff that is holding us captive and all the darkness that we see."

    As for the origin of their name? The band said, "It was actually my pastor funny enough. He said, 'You know what the band is? It's like taking all these different ingredients out from other bands and throwing it all in a big skillet. You should call the band Skillet, that would be funny.'"
