Six-hour metal show in Casino to farewell Seabound

FIVE young Casino men are saying goodbye this month to a metal music project that started in 2011.

In between high school classes, Corey Hazelton, Bailey Ridley, Jayden Ridley, Riley Lollback and Nick Farr started Seabound which, over a five-year period, saw them perform on stages across the Northern Rivers and the country.

The band is splitting up, with some of the members off to new pastures and others pursuing different music projects.

Seabound vocalist Jayden Ridley is staying in music, with Brisbane-based metal band Stepson.

The farewell Seabound show will be held in Casino later this month, with Brisbane bands Stepson and She Cries Wolf also in the line-up.

Other bands in the bill are Newcastle's Eat Your Heart Out, Murwillumbah's As Chaos Falls and Evans Head's Moans Like Lisa.

The punk, hardcore and metalcore music show will be a drug and alcohol-free six-hour music event. Tickets are $15.

Ridley said it was important for the band that the event was open to all ages.

"It is important everyone has access. Growing up in Casino, it was very frustrating I was not able to go because they were 18-plus gigs. It's good to give kids something to do," he said.

At Albert Park, Bruxner Hwy, on March 19, from 3pm.
