Word Entertainment IncRise Deluxe Edition & We As Human
Two great records for one low price! On the heels of their award-winning, platinum selling smash-hit Awake, Skillet returns with an action-packed set of fist-pumping rock and power ballads. Rise follows the thread of a typical American teenager coming to adulthood, facing the problems of the world armed with God's Grace. This deluxe CD/DVD edition includes the radio hits "Sick Of It," "American Noise," and "Rise," plus bonus tracks "Battle Cry," "Everything Goes Black," and "Freakshow." The Awake & Live DVD showcases the band's unstoppable energy on stage with nine tracks and three behind the scenes segments, plus bonus content "The Making of Rise" and "Heart & Passion: Behind the Scenes with Skillet by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association."
Recorded in Los Angeles under the direction of esteemed producer Howard Benson (Skillet, Three Days Grace, My Chemical Romance), the ten-track WE AS HUMAN marks the first full-length album offering from the Nashville band. In addition to ten new tracks, WE AS HUMAN features special appearances from John Cooper of Skillet and Lacey Sturm of Flyleaf.
"I get band demos given to me all the time, but honestly, I don't always get to listen to them. However, when I received a We As Human demo at a concert one day, I did listen, and I was immediately taken aback by how awesome it was! The songs were great - incredible lyrics, great sound.....I honestly hadn't heard an independent heavy rock band this good in years! I called my manager to tell him that he should look into them and he told me that he had been introduced to them recently as well, and that if I was in to them that we should work together on them. I saw so much potential in this band that we decided to start a label! Launching Hear it Loud with We As Human feels so right to me. I'm really excited to see what happens for these guys, and proud of the crazy hard work they've put in to making this record, moving their families to Nashville, and their dedication to the calling on their lives." - John Cooper of Skillet
