Skillet’s John Cooper launches metal band Fight the Fury

Fight the Fury is the new metal project from Skillet frontman and bassist John Cooper. The band, which also features Skillet guitarist Seth Morrison, along with drummer Jared Ward and guitarist John Panzer III, will release its debut EP via Atlantic Records later this year, with full details to be announced in the coming weeks.

“I am so pumped about the release of Fight the Fury,” Cooper said. “This is a side of me and my music that I don’t get to show very often. It takes me back to when I first heard metal and the reason I fell in love with music. It’s raw and unfiltered and emotional.”

“Fight the Fury is for all of the fans out there who like the heavy side of Skillet, but want a super heavy album,” Cooper said. “I hope they feel the emotion of the songs that we have put together, because this project is for them.”

Fight the Fury will embark on its first-ever tour in Russia in December. Details regarding future North American tour plans will be announced in the coming weeks.

“I am so thrilled to announce to Russian fans that Fight the Fury will be playing our first show ever, on our very first tour ever, in Russia,” Cooper said. “I’m happy about that, because Russian fans are some of the very best in the world. I believe that Russia will embrace Fight the Fury, and I look forward to performing. We will have many surprises for you.”
