Skillet’s explosive 2006 Lava/Atlantic/Ardent/INO Records release, Comatose follows 2004’s Collide, which launched the group into the public eye and garnered the band a prestigious Grammy Award nomination. A critical fave, Comatose has become their best-selling project to date, doubling the sales of Collide in half the time. In follow up to packed out club shows on their own as well as with Flyleaf in the spring, and performances before summer festival crowds, this fall Skillet opened for mainstream rockers Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace In the process of becoming one of the hardest working, most rocking, and broadly appealing acts of its generation, radio welcomed Comatose with open arms, as the first single, “Rebirthing” spent seven-weeks at No.1 on Christian Rock. Their second single, “The Last Night,” also took the top spot, this time at both Rock and CHR (CRW/R&R), while their latest single, “The Older I Get” (CHR/Rock) has become their third consecutive No. 1 single.
