|SKILLET DOUBLES SALES/TOPS 200,000 SCANS WITH ‘COMATOSE’
23 July 2007
With no sign of slowing, the Grammy-nominated band SKILLET’s latest, ‘COMATOSE,’ has doubled sales of their 2004 project, ‘COLLIDE,’ having now scanned over 200k units in less than half the time. After 41 weeks on the chart, ‘COMATOSE’ has spent the majority of that time in the Top 10, selling an average of 4900 units each week.
In follow up to packed out club shows on their own as well as with Flyleaf in the spring, and performances before massive summer festival crowds, Skillet will open for mainstream rockers Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace for over 20 dates in September/October (tentative dates below).
In follow up to their seven-week reign at No.1 on Christian Rock with their single “Rebirthing,” Skillet’s second Christian single, “The Last Night,” also nabbed the top spot at Rock and CHR (CRW/R&R). With incredible staying-power, the song made two returns to No. 1 on CHR after initially nabbing the top spot. Therefore, it’s been a waiting game to release the band’s next singles, but both “The Older I Get” and “Comatose,” which will be launched to CHR and ROCK formats respectively this August.
