Skillet Premiere “Legendary” Music Video

Skillet have premiered a new video for their song “Legendary.” This track is from the band’s new album “Victorious,” which will be released on August 2.

John Cooper told People the following:

“The message behind the song that is so important for our world is simply to live your life the way you think you should. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, and don’t be afraid to go against the crowd.

You only have one life to live, so make it count for the things you believe and the people you love. That’s how you live a legendary life.”

He continued:

“The video needed to be modern and even a little surreal. We are talking about our lives being the best versions of ourselves that we can be. But life is short, so don’t waste your time.

This has a certain metaphysical element to it — that we are living in the ‘right here right now,’ but then our lives will be over and all that’s left is what we stood for. That’s why I wanted the video to have a transcendental quality and tons of lighting effects to give being a supernatural quality to the song. And tons and tons of energy!”

He also added:

“‘Legendary’ felt like the right first single because it’s so high energy. It feels like a song that should be played in a stadium while your favorite team is winning. It’s energetic, positive, and inspiring. It’s what the world needs to hear right now.”
