Skillet Joins Pandora’s Billionaires Club

Skillet has achieved another career milestone, joining Pandora’s Billionaires club with over two billion streams. The rarity is reserved for those totaling over a billion spins on the popular platform throughout an artist’s career, and the distinction places them in the company of other Pandora Billionaires like John Legend, Fleetwood Mac, Keith Urban and more. 

“Skillet is without peer in the world of fist-pumping, faith-informed rock, a rare kind of band that shatters stereotypes and marketing plans, while tapping into emotional DNA of people from all walks of life, believers and skeptics alike,” shares Pandora’s Programming Curator Melissa Riddle Chalos. “It’s phenomenal to see the success of a band that, 23 years in, continues to delivers hope on a sonically relevant scale.”

The multi-platinum selling group is gearing up for the debut of their newest album, Victorious, on Aug. 2 on Atlantic Records. In anticipation of their tenth LP, Skillet is unveiling two more instant grat songs, “Anchor” and “Save Me,” on all streaming platforms today. The first single, “Legendary,” is impacting rock radio now and has amassed nearly 7 million views on YouTube.

Another new track, “Dreaming of Eden,” will be available upon release by purchasing a pre-order of their upcoming graphic novel Eden. Powerhouse Z2 Comics is publishing the graphic novel which tells Skillet’s story, that of unlikely heroes, perseverance, and faith.
