"We're thrilled to be touring with Sevendust," says Skillet frontman John Cooper. "The lineup is incredible and I think the fans will be very happy. We can't wait to play our new songs on the tour and connect with the Panheads out on the road." Skillet have been working on new music and expect to include some of the material on the run. Their official album announcement is expected to come May 7.

"We are looking so forward to touring with Skillet," echoes Sevendust vocalist Lajon Witherspoon. "What an amazing band — these shows are going to be amazing. We can't wait to share the stages with them.”
