At the end of one decade and the beginning of the next, the Rock On Purpose staff took some time to reflect on the albums that shaped the musical (and personal) landscape for them over the past 10 years.
From Skillet topping the year end charts to news of the latest supergroup, the first issue of the Pure Rock Report has all you need to know about faith based rock and hip hop as 2020 begins.
Many years over the past decade, it has been a struggle to find enough albums to round out a satisfying end-of-year list. 2019 bucked that trend in a powerful way, offering up a wide range of outstanding albums in every sub-genre of rock and metal.
Skillet will continue touring in support of their critically acclaimed album Victorious in the winter of 2020, according to an Instagram post by Ledger.
Latest on Skillet's long list of accolades for their new release Victorious, lead single "Legendary" has been selected as the official theme song for WWE RAW. The band also released a new live video of the song to accompany the announcement.
Skillet recently kicked off their Victorious Sky tour with Alter Bridge, bringing their customary energy to Columbus, OH.

A special radio broadcast featuring a star-studded lineup of major rock and alternative artists kicked off National Suicide Prevention Week today. The artists include Skillet, Disturbed, and Blink 182. The broadcast, under the initiative I'm Listening, aired on over 230 radio stations owned by Entercom, as well as on radio.com, where you can stream the broadcast. You can find out more at ImListening.org.
Skillet has officially expanded their horizons to the graphic novel realm. August 28, 2019 marked the released of Eden.
The new songs from Victorious held up just as well in this setting as the older classics, leaving the room satisfied by a set that felt energetic and cohesive. Skillet's set on the Victorious War tour was a statement to me, to the whole world: Skillet doesn't need an arena to put on a good show.
