Skillet

Unwilling to stand pat or rest on their laurels, the band—lead vocalist/bassist John Cooper, guitarist/keyboardist Korey Cooper (John\'s wife), drummer/duet partner Jen Ledger and lead guitarist Seth Morrison, making his first appearance on record with Skillet—continue to explore new terrain on Rise, expertly produced by Howard Benson, who previously helmed the mega-successful Awake. Eager for new challenges, Cooper threw himself into collaborative songwriting to a far greater degree than ever before, co-writing the uplifting title song and the lacerating first single \"Sick of it\" with Scott Stevens, founder/leader of the L.A.-based Exies, while teaming with Nashville song smith\'s Tom Douglas and Zac Maloy on the timely and anthemic \"American Noise,\" which Cooper considers to be the strongest song Skillet has yet recorded. On \"American Noise\" and the joyous \"Good to Be Alive,\" the band explores new stylistic territory, bringing an element of heartland rock into their aggressive, theatrical approach. The band expanded their musical palette, integrating natural, acoustic instruments like accordion, mandolin, dulcimer, harp, tympani and bells to their trademark slashing electric guitars, strings, churning synths and pummeling drums.
