Spearheading the effort to merge the two worlds of comics and music, Marvel Entertainment’s Marvel Playback opens up conversation with some of music’s biggest names.
Grammy nominated Skillet‘s John Cooper joined Marvel’s Playback to speak about his love for comics, and the lessons he’s learned from their stories and heroes. See the video below!
“What makes a hero is someone who does something selfless…Someone who stands up for someone who is weak,” says Cooper. “Working in rock and roll is good, but being a hero is better.”
Earning three Billboard Music Award Nominations, their most recent album, Unleashed, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. The group’s latest single “Back From the Dead,” continues to climb the charts, hitting No. 9 on the Active Rock Chart, and No. 10 on Billboard’s Christian Rock Chart. The new single comes on the heels of the debut track “Feel Invincible” that went to #1 at Active Rock radio. “Back From The Dead” is also set to be used in SyFy’s new series, Blood Drive. The episode featuring the Skillet track will be the premiere of the show on June 14th.
The band will be joining Korn and Stone Sour on the Serenity Of Summer Tour throughout the summer.
