Fans everywhere have packed out stadiums this year for the rock and roll experience that is the Skillet tour. Now, Skies Fall Records has announced the upcoming release of the highly anticipated tribute album to Skillet; recorded entirely in orchestral string arrangements. This is no ordinary tribute record, instead it is a masterful classical work of art, a project produced by Skillet’s own Ben Kasica and Skillet’s touring cellist, Tate Olsen.

Helmed by Olsen, the artists behind this album promise an experience like none other; breathing a fresh style into songs that have risen charts in a completely different genre. The upcoming release will feature hits like, “Hero”, “Monster”, and “The Last Night”.

Cellofourte is a genre-defying group, pleasing both rock fans and the savvy tastes of classical music experts. The group has performed on such nationally known programs as Comcasts’s On-Demand and the WQED Holiday Jam, and has graced the front page of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. They were the

featured soloists with Marvin Hamlisch and the Pittsburgh Symphony Pops Orchestra in 2008, and won the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus Battle of the Bands.
