Seether have decided to dedicated their annual Rise Above Fest, which helps raise money for Suicide Awareness Voices Of Education, to Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) and Chris Cornell, who both sadly took their own lives. The festival will be held at Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine this weekend (July 22-23), and it will include: Seether, Korn, Stone Sour, Skillet, Falling In Reverse, Red Sun Rising, Crobot, DragonForce, Cane Hill, Ded, Killer At Large, Shinedown, Halestorm, Theory Of A Deadman, HELLYEAH, All That Remains, Pop Evil, Starset, Avatar, Kyng, and Black Map. Shaun Morgan commented:
“Losing another great rock voice to suicide yesterday is absolutely tragic and heartbreaking. 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.”
