Skillet has something in common with Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys . The group has become the third rock band to receive a platinum certification in 2012, in this case for their latest album, Awake , which has sold more than one million copies since its release in 2009.

The band is currently in the studio working on their ninth studio album, which is expected to be released sometime this spring.  "Musically, this record feels like a roller coaster ride,” said frontman/bassist John Cooper in a statement.  “Several tracks are aggressive with dirtier and edgier guitars.  There are some powerful anthems and the ‘signature Skillet’ songs our fans tend to love: symphonic, classical rock duets."
