12x-platinum and GRAMMY-nominated rock band Skillet is making an impact with their album Dominion, following their top spot debut on iTunes three weeks ago. Their 11th studio project has already amassed over 33 million global album streams to date, and a top 20 Active Rock radio track with "Surviving The Game." This week, "Refuge," the band's first Christian AC radio release from the album, accumulated over 20 radio adds, the most ever for Skillet in a debut week at the format. Hear lead singer John Cooper discuss the track here.

Upon release, critics lauded Dominion for its "'dynamic,' 'incredibly triumphant,' and 'relentlessly, powerfully uplifting' songs." Today, American Songwriter published their recent chat with Cooper about the recording and songwriting process against the extenuating circumstances and implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and how "the album layers expressive textures atop a scorching soundscape to bolster the storytelling." "Lyrically," they continued, "this album is a rallying cry to those seeking hope amidst the haze of these uncertain times. Both poetic and unapologetically candid, the songwriting anchors the album. Slow-burning at times, and raucous when necessary, the lyrical messaging presents a steady presence of strength for those who need it most."

Cooper joined FOX & Friends this past Saturday to discuss the themes surrounding Dominion, the celebration of freedom and liberation from fear, and tomorrow will launch a 5-Day Bible Study on the Dominion of Christ with YouVersion. Cooper will also join a panel discussion during this year's annual National Religious Broadcaster's (NRB) Convention, discussing "Engaging A Hostile Culture" on March 10.

Skillet is currently on the road headlining Winter Jam 2022. For all Skillet tour info, visit Skillet.com.
