Voting in the 3rd Annual Loudwire Music Awards recently came to an end, with a batch of rock and metal winners being saluted for their efforts during the year 2013. Among those winners was Skillet, who took home the Best Rock Album honor for their stellar effort, 'Rise.'

As the Loudwire Music Awards are a completely fan-voted honor, the band wanted to make sure to send thanks along to those who took the time to vote for them, whether it be once or multiple times during the voting period. All four members shot an acceptance speech, which can be seen in the video above.

Skillet's 'Rise' album has already generated the singles 'Sick of It,' 'American Noise,' 'Rise' and their currently rising track, 'Not Gonna Die.' It can currently be purchased at iTunes. The band has been continuing their support of the disc on tour early this year and fans can catch them stateside with shows booked into early April. See their itinerary here.

Once again, congrats to Skillet for their Best Rock Album victory in the 3rd Annual Loudwire Music Awards.
