Skillet have now released the official video for current single "Sick of It," the first single off the band's forthcoming album, Rise, which will be released June 25th via Atlantic/Word.

Rise follows the Grammy-nominated band's 2009 album, Awake, which was certified platinum in the US. Skillet were the only active rock band to achieve platinum status in 2012, and they were one of three rock bands (with Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys) to strike platinum sales that year.

Rise, their first concept album, tells the story of an American teen coming into adulthood and trying to figure out who he is in a world riddled with problems within and outside his control.

"The narrative idea happened after we had 10 or 11 of the songs chosen," lead singer/bassist John Cooper says. "As we recorded them, we started to realize there was something going on, that the album was really telling a story. Realizing that, I knew we needed to make it as powerful as we could."

The band recorded the album in Los Angeles where they re-teamed with producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, All American Rejects), who helmed Awake.

Skillet are direct support to Shinedown on the upcoming Carnival of Madness Tour. To stay current on all things Skillet, be sure to check out their official page, as well as their Facebook and Twitter pages.
