Change of direction for Skillet with new 'Collide' album.
MEMPHIS rock band Skillet, who are undertaking a mini UK tour in
December, have announced they will be changing style on their new
album, 'Collide'. Said band member Korey Cooper, "We had done the
electronic thing for three records. We were happy with 'Alien Youth'

on the keyboards and a lot more just straight rock. And obviously Paul
Ebersold (3 Doors Down, Sister Hazel) coming into the picture as
producer shaped the sound." 'Collide' is released on Memphis-based CCM
