They are great live. I don't care for his voice though. It's like a mix of Nickelback and Three Days Grace.

@Andy I haven't talked to Seth about it in awhile. Pretty sure they're hitting the studio in the next few months. He's flying home tonight though... so I'll try to ask him when he gets home.

Cool. It's been around 3 years since Awake? I'm ready for a new studio album. If I've seen a band 3 times in one album cycle, then you know they've been a touring machine haha.

I love this band. Last year I saw them for the first time, they came to CT for the first time ever and I saw them another 4 times after that. John's voice can be grating sometimes because of all of the rasp but they have so much energy and put on an amazing show.

Seen them 4 times, tried to get an autograph every show, they never stay :'(
I like how John Cooper always talks about how many testimonies he hears after concerts, yet they always leave right after they play. At least, every time I've seen them. Love them regardless.

Or just ask Seth for some autographs and mail them to me.

I don't care that much for autographs to be honest. I just like chatting.

I don't really care about it too much, it's just the fact that I've bought tickets 4 times and spent time after the show hoping to get autographs and haven't been able to. Frustrating.

I don't think they had much say in it... that was the Winter Jam deal. I was lucky enough to travel with Seth & the crew for 3 shows. The rest of the band stayed on the bus with their family usually. Just to make it clear though... they're all very nice people & love talking to the fans when they have the time.

Oh I know they're all really nice. I just know they've been hard to meet the 3 times I saw them. The first 2 were before Seth joined. Chu was the best one to come out after the gigs.

Yeah... I'll get their autographs eventually. It's a life goal of mine.

I was a huge skillet fan a while ago. I'm really losing interest lately though. I didn't care for Awake too much and now Comatose doesn't seem nearly as good to me as it did back then. I still like a lot of stuff off of Collide though. I thought that album was pretty good. Reminds me a lot of Nirvana.

Collide is my favorite followed by Comatose. Alien Youth was cool too, but I don't know if most modern Skillet fans would enjoy it. I don't think most people realize Awake was their 7th studio album lol. 9th album total if you count Ardent Worship and Comatose Comes Alive.
