SKILLET Launches Save Me Video Game
SKILLET LAUNCHES "SAVE ME" VIDEO GAME
Loudwire Premieres New Endeavor for Multi-Platinum Rockers
Nashville, TN.... April 10, 2020 - They have played tens of thousands of shows all over the globe, been GRAMMY nominated, and sold over 12 million albums, but SKILLET has never had their own video game. That all changed today when LOUDWIRE premiered SKILLET'S "Save Me" video game, themed with the band's latest active rock track and music video of the same name.
In the game, each of the bandmembers (John, Korey, Jen and Seth) are characters fans can select and play as. Once a character is selected, the characters run through a maze where players are meant to avoid various aspects seen in the "Save Me" music video: the hand (callout to John’s scene), water/poison (callout to Jen’s scene), and fire (callout to John’s scene/smoking hands burning his eyes), which will be floating around chasing them; similar to the ghosts in Pac Man.
Last week SKILLET premiered the music video for "Save Me" on their YouTube channel, and hosted a Q&A with over 10,000 fans. The video has already garnered a million views. While joining most of the world in isolating at home, John and Korey Cooper have also been creating some acoustic performances for their fans of late and posting them on their social accounts, including a piano version of "Anchor," and an unplugged version of the fan favorite "Whispers in the Dark," both of which have been incredibly popular. ABOUT SKILLET: One Victorious, of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated, Pandora Billionaires Club recipients, multiplatinum Wisconsin quartet SKILLET—John Cooper [lead vocals/bass], Korey Cooper [guitar/keys], Jen Ledger [drums/vocals], and Seth Morrison [lead guitar]—write the soundtrack to triumph. An undying spirit humbly asserted and affirmed the band as one of this generation’s most successful rock acts. However, as all classic underdog stories do, it happened quietly under the radar. By 2019, they not only garnered a pair of GRAMMY® Award nods and sold over 12 million albums worldwide, but they also took home a Billboard Music Award for the double-platinum Awake.
Its breakout single “Monster” remains “one of the most-streamed rock songs of all-time” with over 3 Billion global audio streams. 2016’s Unleashed bowed at #3 on the Billboard Top 200. Going #1 on Rock Radio, the lead single “Feel Invincible” cracked 150 million global audio streams and went platinum. Meanwhile, the gold-certifiedUnleashed became their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum status. To date, nine original tunes earned RIAA recognition in tandem with high-profile syncs by everyone from WWE and Marvel to ESPN and NFL. Between selling out arenas on four continents, the group performed on CONAN and graced the pages of USA Today and New York Times, to name a few. In 2018 alone, the band clocked 1 billion streams. This momentum continues on their 2019 tenth full-length, Victorious. With the bulk produced by Korey and John, it lives up to its name for Skillet as their most triumphant body of work yet. On top ofVictorious, Skillet debuted their first graphic novel, EDEN: A Skillet Graphic Novel with Z2 Comics, which has become the publisher’s best-selling book of all time.
