The day has finally arrived for Skillet fans, the multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY-nominated hard rock band have released their feverishly anticipated 11th studio album, Dominion.
Preempted by singles Surviving The Game, Standing In The Storm, Refuge and Dominion, the spiritually uplifting Dominion arrives at a time when people are in need of a jolt of inspiration, a notion that outspoken vocalist, John Cooper explains.
"Dominion is about the celebration of freedom, a liberation from fear - to be who we want to be, say what we want to say, believe what we want to believe. "In some ways, it’s a reminder of the God-given rights that we were born with. It’s time to regain some sort of control over our lives and not be a slave to fear. I hope this record is going to make people feel empowered, inspired, uplifted and want to rock their faces off!"
Cooper opened up more on the inspiration for the record, while discussing Surviving The Game,
"Surviving The Game is a defiant song about not giving in to the fear that the world is and has been experiencing. This song brings a feeling of survival; you have to do what you need to do in order to get your life back; a defiance against fear and the things that want to hold you down - for so many that's depression, isolation, loneliness, suicidal thoughts, etc. This song is about becoming the person you are meant be and coming out on the other side of all the madness."
Dominion was produced by Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Papa Roach, Disturbed) with songs written by John Cooper, Korey Cooper, Kevin Churko and Kane Churko, was created 100% remotely between the band's home studio in Wisconsin, and the Churko's studio in Las Vegas.
