Seether has assembled another all-star lineup -- including main stage performers Disturbed, Volbeat, Alter Bridge and Beartooth -- for its fourth Rise Above Fest, which will raise money and awareness for mental health and suicide prevention on Aug. 6 at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine.
The second stage will host performances by Killswitch Engage, Hatebreed, Memphis May Fire, We Came As Romans and I Prevail. Previous Rise Above Fest lineups have included Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Papa Roach, Hellyeah and others.
The festival began during 2012 and took its name from Seether's song "Rise Above This," which frontman Shaun Morgan wrote to his younger brother Eugene, who was also Seether's bass tech, eight years ago before he committed suicide. Last year's festival drew a crowd of more than 8,500 and raised nearly $60,000 for Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE), a Minnesota-based organization which is dedicated to heightening awareness and educating the public about mental health issues and suicide prevention. The three Rise Above Fests have so far raised a total of $110,000 for SAVE, and Morgan will be receiving the Artistic Expression Award next month in Las Vegas from the National Council for Behavioral Health.
