Seether is busy working with producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, AC/DC) on the act’s next release, due out later this year. In October the group put out a two-disc hits collection, Seether 2002-2013, which includes its current single, “Weak.”
The second edition of Seether’s Rise Above Fest is set for May 10 in Bangor, Maine. The fest also features Avenged Sevenfold, Motorhead, Hellyeah, Black Stone Cherry, Trivium, Skindred, Kyng, Muckler’s Circle and Devour The Day.
Proceeds from the event will go to SAVE (Suicide Awareness Voices of Education), a non-profit that works to prevent suicide and reduce the stigma of mental illness through public awareness and educational programs.
The inaugural Rise Above Fest raised nearly $20,000 for the new Hampshire chapter of NAMI (National Alliance On Mental Illness).
