Skillet Win Best Rock Album in the 3rd Annual Loudwire Music Awards

Atlantic Records

Congrats to Skillet, who emerged victorious in one of the closest battles of the 3rd Annual Loudwire Music Awards. The band’s ‘Rise’ album wins Best Rock Album of 2013, pulling in 31.5 percent of the vote.

The disc is one of the deeper efforts of 2013 in terms of quality content. The album generated such rocking singles as ‘Sick of It,’ ‘American Noise,’ ‘Rise’ and most recently ‘Not Gonna Die.’ Even with the big year, Skillet faced stiff competition from Alter Bridge’s ‘Fortress,’ which was mere percentage points behind earning 31.2 percent of the final vote. Finishing a distant third was Avenged Sevenfold’s ‘Hail to the King,’ earning 17.32 percent of the tally.

Our congrats to Skillet for winning Best Rock Album of 2013 in the 3rd Annual Loudwire Music Awards. Look for them playing songs from the disc on their current tour, which is booked into early April.
