Nashville, TN.... August 11, 2020 - SKILLET is telling their fans to load up their cars and come rock out for a two-night Drive-In Concert at the North parking lots of the H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, TX as part of the venue's Tailgate Series on October 9th and 10th. This is the multi-platinum rockers first ever drive in event, which will also feature fellow Atlantic Record's artist, Colton Dixon.
"It's been tough to not rock out with our fans over the past 5 months, so we are psyched to do two shows in a row in Texas this October," and excited John Cooper said about the shows. "Come rock with us, panheads!"

Skillet recently announced the upcoming, September 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 (9/11/20).
Victorious: The Aftermath will feature all twelve original tracks from Victorious, plus eight additional tracks, including 2 brand new unreleased songs, and 5 reimagined songs.
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."
