Christian music rockers, Skillet, stopped by the recently opened Lucky Strike Social, inside the Crossgates Mall in Albany. The Q103 sponsored event, held a contest over the last week, giving fans the chance to enter for the chance to win a spot on the guest list, which was the only way into the intimate 3-song Q&A event. The event took place inside the venue’s, Jupiter Hall, which is a 900 person concert style club with tables and couches in a elegant setting.
For years, rumors have persisted about an all-female supergroup consisting of Jen Ledger and Korey Cooper from Skillet, Lizzy Hale of Halestorm and Emma Anzai of Sick Puppies. During one of the Q&A parts of the show, hostess for the event, Q103’s Candace, told the ladies from Skillet, that the radio station had recently had Emma and Sick Puppies over for a Garage Session. Candace noted that Sick Puppies will join Skillet for a fall tour at the end of the year. She went on to tell the ladies that she was curious about the rumors of them teaming up with Anzai and Hale, and if there were a possibility that something could actually happen. Drummer and vocalist Jen Ledger replied, saying:
We literally just spoke to Emma about this. We played a show with her recently, and she came on the bus with us, and hung out with us and I was like, ‘I feel were are getting a lot of demands on Twitter and Instagram, saying about them being a supergroup.’ The word is already out there, and we will see if we can make something happen. I think something needs to happen.
Vocalist and bassist John Cooper quickly stated that they should do acoustic cover tunes, and he would help pick the songs for them.
Skillet is set to release its tenth studio album Unleashed August 5. The band closed with an acoustic version of its lead single from the upcoming album “Feel Invincible,” which has been heating up rock radio airwaves everywhere.
