Skillet have just released the title track off their forthcoming album, Rise, which is available June 25th. The song "Rise" is part of the band's first ever concept album, as singer John Cooper explains, "The narrative idea happened after we had 10 or 11 of the songs chosen. As we recorded them, we started to realize that there was something going on - that the album was really telling a story. Realizing that, I knew we needed to make it as powerful as we could." The title track is available on iTunes now.
The band are also offering their die-hard fans the chance to hang out with them on tour via the "Road to Rise VIP Experience." There will be two all-day events only for fans to attend, hang out and eat with the band, hear the new album first and see the live DVD first: June 14 in Nashville, TN and June 21st in Chicago, Illinois.

Skillet will also be hitting the road this Summer on the Festival Circuit. Be sure to catch them at Rock on the Range, Alive, Creation East, and Rock the Park this summer.
