Skillet has always made music a family affair, with frontman John Cooper and his wife, keyboardist Korey Cooper, bringing their kids on the road for several years now. But the Coopers expanded on that recently by including both their son and daughter on their latest album, Rise. John Cooper told Loudwire how that came out, explaining, "We were putting together these interludes, because we wanted to tell a story, and I thought the songs went really well together. I was trying to figure out what to do between these songs. In my house we have a workout/studio room. I was on the treadmill and my wife and daughter walked in. My daughter was holding a microphone. I asked what they were doing, and my wife said she had an idea. It turned out really, really well. It was something we weren't planning on."
