Skillet has released the official music video for “Legendary,” the first single from the band’s upcoming 10th studio album, Victorious. Skillet frontman John Cooper told Billboard about the track, “‘Legendary’ is kind of fun because it sounds like Skillet, but it’s actually a little different for Skillet as well. That opening guitar riff isn’t like anything we’ve ever done on guitar. It’s a little bit bluesy, a little bit rock.” Cooper added about the song’s subject matter, “The general message of ‘Legendary’ is to make your life count. You’re going to have a lot of hard things in your life. Sometimes it will get you down, but you need to make your life count. You are only here for so long on earth, so every day fight to be legendary.” Cooper said that the song also has a more personal meaning for him, explaining, “It’s to all the people who said that Skillet would never make it. They said we were too Christian. We were too pretty. We had too many girls in the band, too many keyboards. It’s too musical. It’s too this or too that and 23 years later and 10 albums later, we’re very unlikely people to still be doing music.” Victorious is out August 2nd and the band will start a headlining tour that same month, with support from Sevendust, Pop Evil and Devour The Day.
