Shaun Morgan of Seether started this festival seven years ago, after his brother Eugene took his own life and Shaun wanted to spread the word about Mental Illness and Awareness of Suicide and Prevention. You can listen to our interview with Shaun & the guys about this topic by clicking HERE.
In it’s Fifth Year (two years were skipped), the festival has grown to a two day event, and is now being touted as the largest Suicide Awareness Festival and Gathering in the World. Seether did not headline this year’s event, but they certainly put on a great show. Joined by Sevendust’s Clint Lowery on Guitar, they played for over an hour right at dusk. As the sunset, they played their signature song “Rise Above This”, which was written in Eugene’s honor by Shaun.
