Skillet’s 2006 release Comatose has just been certified platinum by the RIAA. This marks the band’s second platinum album alongside their 2009 release Awake. The album was nominated for a GRAMMY® in 2007 and saw the release of numerous singles including the likes of “Rebirthing,” “Whispers In The Dark,” “The Last Night” and “Comatose.”
Skillet has cemented its place as one of the 21st century’s most successful rock bands. Selling more than 11 million units worldwide, the Wisconsin quartet have received two GRAMMY® Award nominations and won a Billboard Music Award for the platinum-certified Awake. Their double-platinum single “Monster” is “the eighth most-streamed rock song of 2015” with a total of 57 million plays (and counting) on Spotify and would earn the distinction of becoming “the best-selling digital single in the history of Christian Music.” 2013’s Rise bowed at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release and received resounding and eclectic acclaim from the likes of USA Today, New York Times, Revolver Loudwire, and more.
