Skillet: Back and Better Than Ever!

Skillet stormed their way to the top of the charts time and time again with the seven hit singles from their previous release, Comatose. And now, they are poised to do it again with their new album, Awake.
Hero is the first single from the album, going to Christian CHR and Rock stations. It's already a chart topper and one of Skillet's best songs to date.
While it might not be quite as epic as the lead single from Comatose, the hard hitting Rebirthing, it is still a worthy first single and a highly enjoyable Rock tune that is destined to become a Skillet classic.
Skillet's skilled writing is on full display here and new drummer Jen adds her backup vocals to the son, making for an enjoyable contrast with lead singer John Cooper.
All in all, this is a worthy first single and does a fine job paving the road for Awake, which drops on August 25 and shows the potential to be the best from Skillet yet.
