Skillet Receives RIAA Gold Status and Announces 2019 Tour Dates
2019 will find Skillet once again touring with Breaking Benjamin and Fight The Fury for dates in March and April. Known for their vast tour schedule, the dates will be followed by a trek through the Russian Federation. Tickets for the two month trek are on sale now.
The band’s latest effort, Unleashed, just garnered RIAA Gold status selling over 500K copies. The distinction follows suit with the lead single, “Feel Invincible,” which was RIAA Gold certified last year. Unleashed is the fourth consecutive Skillet record to receive certification of either gold, platinum or double platinum. Likewise, “Not Gonna Die” just earned gold distinction, as found on their RIAA Gold certified album Rise.
The multi-platinum selling group will close out 2018 with over 1 billion streams worldwide. Skillet again claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Year-End Christian Streaming Songs Artist Chart – an honor they have held since the chart’s inception in 2014. The now RIAA Gold certified album Unleashed placed No. 9 on Billboard’s Year-End Top Christian Albums Chart. The band’s double-platinum track “Monster” topped the Christian Streaming Songs Year-End Chart, while also claiming the No. 7 and 8 spot with “Hero” and “Feel Invincible” respectively. Skillet was No. 5 on the Top Christian Albums Artists Year-End Chart.
