Skillet Extends ‘The Unleashed Tour’

Skillet is feeling pretty invincible. The Christian metal/hard rock band is following up its most successful European headline run to date with a second leg of U.S. dates for “The Unleashed Tour.”

The tour is named after Skillet’s 10th studio album, which came out in August on Atlantic. The 12-track Unleashed includes the hit single “Feel Invisible.” The song went to No. 1 on both the Active (Mediabase) and Mainstream (Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems) rock charts. The video has been viewed more than 21 million times on YouTube and streamed more than 16 million times on Spotify.  

The band’s European tour included numerous sold-out gigs. Skillet wrapped up 2016 with a performance last Friday at London’s Koko.
