Ardent Records’ top rock band Skillet has put the finishing touches on its fourth studio recording, Alien Youth, set to release August 28. Skillet lead vocalist and bass player John Cooper produced the highly anticipated new recording.

Currently on the Festival Con Dios tour, Skillet will embark this fall on its first major-market headliner tour with special guests Pillar and Justifide. The band will visit 30 top markets with its largest production to date, playing in bigger venues to highlight its full production and dynamic live performance. Furthermore, Skillet will be featured at an impressive number of top festivals and several crusade events with Luis Palau and Harvest Crusades during this summer, which will put them in front of an additional 200,000 or more people.
Over the course of its career, Skillet has developed a consistently large and loyal fan base, becoming both a critic’s favorite as well as a youth group standard with their ministry oriented and aggressive, creative, and cutting-edge style. The new album is geared to further solidify the band’s position while expanding its reach. The first Rock radio single from the project, “Alien Youth,” will be serviced this month. In July, the band will release “You Are My Hope” as a follow-up to last year’s hugely successful Top 5 CHR hit “Rest.”
