2017 has been a landmark year of career milestones for rockers Skillet. The band dominated the Billboard yearend charts for 2017, landing at No. 1 on the Christian streaming songs artists (and has held the top spot since the charts inception in 2014); No. 1, No. 4, No. 6, and No. 10 on the Christian streaming songs (and has held the top spot since the charts inception in 2014), No. 7 rock streaming artist, No. 8 top Christian artists and No. 11 rock streaming songs, as well as numerous others. 
Just in time for 2018, the band has released a new visual component for the song "Breaking Free." The song, which features Lacey Sturm on vocals, comes from the band's release "Unleashed Beyond," a deluxe edition of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful release "Unleashed." The video is now available on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/6kR3gYYGKlc.
The debut single from "Unleashed," "Feel Invincible," was recently certified Gold by the RIAA. The song went to No. 1 on the active rock charts and the hot Christian Songs chart. It was also nominated for a Billboard Music Award. The WWE, NFL, MLB, World Cup Of Hockey, Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Sports Awards and "Rock Band 4" also used the song in various promotions. The video for the song has been viewed over 67 million times on YouTube.
Skillet's breakthrough album, "Awake," was recently certified Double-Platinum by the RIAA, one of only two Christian artists to receive this distinction in the past decade. The achievement comes from one of Skillet's most acclaimed albums and easily a fan-favorite. The album spawned the Double-Platinum single "Monster," and that song earned the distinction of being the most-streamed rock song of 2015.
The videos from the "Awake" are collectively approaching a half of a billion views on YouTube.
Skillet will hit the road on 12-week arena tour starting Jan. 5, 2018, headlining the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular. More information about tickets for these dates and all Skillet shows can be found at: http://www.skillet.com/tour.
