The second of two shows TCM will be covering this week at the Skyway Theater is coming this Friday, September 30th. Skillet will be making a stop on their Unleashed Tour, with thanks to 93X! The band’s style has been described as Christian rock, Christian metal, alternative rock, hard rock, nu metal, and symphonic metal. The band’s eponymous debut album characterized by its grunge influences, while their follow-up album, “Hey You, I Love Your Soul” was noted for its electronic elements and industrial feel. The musical style is also described as an aspiration; according to Cooper’s idea for a perfect music is to ‘unite’ individuals spiritually and socially. Skillet is currently touring in support of their newest album, “Unleashed”.
Joining Skillet on this show will be Thousand Foot Krutch. Touring in support of their album “Exhale” released on June 17 of this year, TFK will be a great addition to this show!

Finally, opening up the show will be Devour the Day. It’s true the world has only just begun to witness the power of Joey and his other half in Devour The Day, Blake Allison [Lead Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter, Producer]. However, they got a pretty good glimpse at the group’s potential in the form of 2014’s Time & Pressure. The record would sell 20,000 plus copies and land multiple hits in the Top 25 at Active Rock. Most notably, the instantly recognizable “Good Man” went Top 10 at the format and moved over 100,000 singles to date. Devour The Day offer a rather intriguing and completely appropriate metaphor for their second full-length album, S.O.A.R. [Razor & Tie]. “It’s like the difference between a superhero’s first and second movie,” smiles Joey Chicago [Bass, Vocals, Songwriter]. “In the first movie, the hero is still getting used to his powers—fumbling around and slowly understanding his place. By the beginning of the second film, he becomes what he’s meant to be. On S.O.A.R., we have become Devour The Day. We have a very firm grasp on who we are and the music we want to make. Even though we’ve been playing together for so long, it feels like the very beginning of our career.”
