A week before 'Unleashed' hits

Grammy-nominated Skillet's acclaimed record "Rise" (2013) has received RIAA gold certification a week before the debut of their 10th studio album, "Unleashed" (available Aug. 5). Thanking fans across the globe, the band posted a video to social media expressing their appreciation, along with a surprise teaser for Panheads.

"We are so very excited - 'Rise' just got certified gold," John announced. "We want to say a big 'Thank you' to all the Panheads out there who have been supporting us for so long. It's been absolutely amazing. It's been a huge year so far."

Skillet's latest hit single, "Feel Invincible," has become the theme song for WWE's "Battleground" and TBS' "E-League," receiving feature placements on "Rock Band 4" and Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Sports Awards.

Skillet has cemented its place as one of the 21st century's most successful rock bands. Selling more than 11 million units worldwide, the Wisconsin quartet have received two Grammy nominations and won a Billboard Music Award for the platinum-certified "Awake." Their double-platinum single "Monster" is the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015, with a total of 57 million plays (and counting) on Spotify.

"Rise" bowed at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release and received resounding and eclectic acclaim.
