Seether’s 5th Annual Rise Above Fest, the largest suicide awareness event in the world, which will be held this Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23 at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine will feature performers including Korn, Shinedown, Stone Sour, Skillet, Halestorm, Falling in Reverse and more.
"Losing another great rock voice to suicide yesterday is absolutely tragic and heartbreaking," said Seether's Shaun Morgan. "It's exactly why we are doing what we set out to do this weekend - to build awareness for this mental disease. I started this festival as a tribute to anyone who has lost someone. If this festival does something to help one person reconsider the tragic choice of suicide, then it will be the greatest success of my career. We will honor the memories of Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell and dedicate this weekend to them."
Morgan, Rise Above Fest’s founder, was honored in 2016 with the “Artistic Expression” Award from the National Council for Behavioral Health at the Awards of Excellence in Las Vegas.
