Further cementing their place as one of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, 12x-platinum rockers Skillet are seeing their RIAA certifications multiply yet again. Their latest milestones include the new triple-platinum status of their landmark album Awake, with three of its hit tracks also accumulating more certs as "Awake & Alive," goes double-platinum, "Hero," triple-platinum, and "Monster," with over 4 billion global audio streams, hits quadruple platinum status. 

Skillet's latest single, "Surviving The Game," the first from their forthcoming January 14 album, Dominion (Atlantic), has made a strong debut, already accumulating over 6.5 million streams. The music video for "Surviving The Game" has been viewed over 2.7 million times and has seen some great sport sync usage, including a recent MLB hit.

Today, their second instant grat track, "Standing In The Storm" is available upon pre-ordering Dominion. Fans also have access to a lyric video for "Standing in the Storm."

Swirling around the key line, "I've still got some life in me," culled from one of Korey Cooper's journals, John Cooper comments, "We're getting older, our kids are getting older, and the world is falling apart, so there's a part of me that's like, 'Do you really want to go back on the road in the midst of a Pandemic?'," he admits. "Do we want to keep this business going? Then, she showed me this passage in her journal. I was really impacted. I started to think, 'Yes, there's a lot of crazy things going on, but I'm not done!'"

Dominion, produced by Kevin Churko (Papa Roach, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch) with songs written by John Cooper, Korey Cooper, Kevin Churko, and Kane Churko, was created 100% remotely between the band's tour dates, home studio in Wisconsin, and the Churko's studio in Las Vegas.

"Dominion is about the celebration of freedom, a liberation from fear - to be who we want to be, say what we want to say, believe what we want to believe," Cooper says. "In some ways, it's a reminder of the God-given rights that we were born with. It's time to regain some sort of control over our lives and not be a slave to fear. I hope this record is going to make people feel empowered, inspired, uplifted, and want to rock their faces off!"

They'll be doing just that when they headline Winter Jam 2022, kicking off on January 7 in Charleston, West Virgina. For all Skillet tour info, visit
