“‘This Is The Kingdom’ is about the fact that if we are in Christ, then we are called to live differently than the world. See in the world, we’re told to love people who love us back. But in the kingdom, we are supposed to love our enemies and pray for our enemies – we’re supposed to forgive people whether or not they ask for that forgiveness. In such a time of incredible division in America – we’re going through such terrible pain right now – this song is a reminder to us that it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what color your skin is, or how much money you make. None of those things matter in the kingdom of God because in the kingdom of God, there is no Jew or Gentile, no slave or freeman, and no man or woman. We are all one in Christ Jesus, and that is a great source of encouragement for unity in the church.” -John Cooper (Skillet)

One of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated 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 285 million 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-certified Unleashed became their fourth consecutive album to receive either a gold, platinum, or double-platinum plaque. 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.
