Multi-Platinum rockers announce graphic novel, ‘Eden II: The Aftermath,’ available for pre-sale with instant grat track, ‘Terrify the Dark Reimagined’
On Friday, multi-Platinum and Grammy-nominated rock band Skillet announced the Sept. 11 release of their deluxe edition project, “Victorious: The Aftermath,” simultaneously unveiling a pre-sale package that includes the album and their second graphic novel, “Eden II: The Aftermath.” Also available is the instant grat track for “Terrify the Dark (Reimagined)” as well as its corresponding lyric video.
“Victorious: The Aftermath” will feature all 12 original tracks from “Victorious,” plus eight additional tracks, including two brand-new unreleased songs, and 5 reimagined songs. Full track listing will be unveiled at later date.
“Eden II: The Aftermath once again pairs Random Shock Studios with Skillet frontman John Cooper and his “Eden” artist Chris Hunt. Two editions will again be available: both the standard and a limited deluxe edition. Skillet's return to the post-apocalyptic world of Eden, as established in their 2019 graphic novel debut of the same name, is an exciting one for the band as well as their publisher, Z2 Comics, as the original book became their best-selling graphic novel of all time. According to Cooper, “Aftermath” promises "more action, more surprises, more suspense."
On “Victorious,” one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, two-time Grammy Award-nominated, Pandora Billionaires Club recipients, multi-Platinum Wisconsin quartet Skillet write the soundtrack to triumph. An undying spirit humbly asserted and affirmed the band as one of this generation’s most successful rock acts.
