Skillet Sweeps Rock Categories at 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards

Oct 09, 2014

Skillet continues to prove themselves as a leading force in the diverse world of rock music as they were awarded Rock Album of the Year for RISE and Rock Song of the Year for "Not Gonna Die" at the 45th Annual GMA Dove Awards Tuesday night at Lipscomb University in Nashville. 

The honors reflect the success of RISE, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Rock and Christian charts and No. 4 on the Billboard 200. "Not Gonna Die" was one of several No. 1 radio hits to come from the album.

"Have to say it was pretty cool hearing the news about these wins," remarked lead singer John Cooper. "We couldn't be there since we're heading to Europe again this week, but to have this album recognized in this way is definitely an honor, and we're really thankful."


On October 12, Skillet will head to Glasgow, UK to kick off their first headlining European tour. As the band's third visit to Europe in a year, they will make 20+ stops in cities including London, Zurich, Stockholm, Warsaw, as well as multiple dates in Russia, where the band's popularity is growing exponentially. See full routing information below.  

The fall tour follows the band's jaunt with the Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival, for which Skillet joined multi-platinum artists Godsmack, Seether, Buckcherry and Pop Evil at stops throughout the country. Earlier this summer, Skillet performed at multiple festivals throughout Europe, playing for thousands of fans. The summer and fall tours have seen the band gain a solid European following, all subsequent to last fall’s tour supporting Nickelback.
