hello...

Hey Everyone!!!

There's a lot going on in Skillet world. We spent the weekend in the studio in Chicago recording another song for the album. We hope it actually makes the album.....we may of missed the deadline, but we'll see. It was still fun to record it anyway! Then we spent Monday and Tuesday at another studio in the city where we live recording and arranging 5 of the new songs acoustically. So, everyone's been working hard. It's coming down to the wire on stuff. Oct 3rd isn't too far off now!!! This coming Monday we are filming 2 music videos in Chicago. One for "Rebirthing" and the other is for a song called "Whispers in the Dark". Should be fun....the director seems to know what he's doing from some of his work we've seen. I hope YOU GUYS like the videos when they're done!

I better go for now. Thank you all for your prayers, comments, and email. We have such GREAT fans.....we love you guys!

Which means once Whispers is released, to start pounding TRL on MTV with requests for it.

Two music videos...wow. I've never heard of a band that made two videos at once. That was crazy to read on Myspace. But hey, fun stuff. Hope they turn out well!

Evanscence made 4 music videos for their first album... infact I think I think quite a few bands have done 2 music videos for one album.

Anyway woot! Music videos :D

And I hope that last song makes the album...

That was over a period of 3 years though.

How do they even make money off of music videos? Because we obviously don't buy them.

from what i understand, not directly... but it's another way to spread the word about their music and reach a wider audience.

yeah, it's exciting that the label is so supportive and pushing their music... always a good sign. :)

they get played on like mtv, fuse vh1, it basically just gives them publicity.

yeah, everyone involved in making the video gets paid by the label. but the band themselves do not get any money. unless you count CD's and concert tickets bought as a result of someone seeing their video. :)

Those are some true words Tracy. In the press released that have quotes from the big wigs it sounds like they really like the band the way they are lumping them in with some of the greats.

I'm hoping the videos are around the quality of Savior and Best Kept Secret and not Alien Youth quality. :P

i seriously doubt it... not with Atlantic putting money into it... i'm thinking this will probably be their best yet... photo quality and everything.

if it is anything like their promo pics (quality of them compared to other years) i think it is safe to say that they're going to be awesome.

but we'll just have to wait and find out.

More pictures of the video shoot were posted on their myspace. They are looking to be ordinary videos that are more focused on the performance of the band rather than a story/theme or eye candy. Part of me wanted them to do something with a story, though. But who knows, maybe the videos will surprise us with something.

i disagree, they looked plain, but in music vids they usually have a sotry going or something, then go to a shot of the band playing. so the people in the music video may not be members of skillet, but actors, so why would they show the actors on thier myspace? i hope that makes sense. im saying that there is more to the vids than what they shot. it looks like all those pics were taken in a period of 1/2 hour. and remember its only one video.

i saw some other pics from the video shoot and they were against a "green screen" except it wasnt green, jsut one of those backdrops that they add an image through computer animation.

What I would like to know is when these videos will be airing and what channels will be airing them. We have It's All Gospel here and I would love to see these stations airing the videos. If we had a release date it would at least be a start.

i dont know how music vids are released. i assume the sations add them based of how they are doing in radio, or publicity

Hm, I don't get MTV or any music video channels on tv here, so I always watch for it to be loaded on yahoolaunch or even their website. :/

skillet will announce when they are released.

once they are out, the videos will be availble to be seen on skillet's site, their myspace no doubt, and panheads.org. :)
