The track that got me hooked into the band was none other than their 2009 mega hit Monster and the track certainly brought them into the mainstream for sure and they have not looked back since. Now 10 years later and the band is gearing up to release their tenth studio album in Victorious which comes out August 2ND via Atlantic Records. To get the fans ready for the album, the band has released a track that may sound a little familiar to fans in the track Legendary which the band has played live. The anthemic track was described by singer John Cooper, “It’s actually a little different for Skillet as well. That opening guitar riff isn’t like anything we’ve ever done on guitar. It’s a little bit bluesy, a little bit rock. I thought it was cool.” He continues to say, “It’s the first time that me and Korey [Cooper] produced most of the record ourselves. When I was looking at what we did well on Unleashed, I thought it was a real energizing and fun record to listen to. That’s what a great Skillet record is — songs that make people want to put their fists up in the air at a concert or get them through a run or drive or whatever they are doing. So we set out to make a record that had a lot of emotion to it.” The band will be on the road this summer with Sevendust so be sure to check out that tour, but in the meantime check out the lyric video below:
