Seabound says goodbye with six-hour metal show

FIVE Casino youths are saying goodbye 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 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 Stepson and She Cries Wolf also in the line-up. Newcastle's Eat Your Heart Out, Murwillumbah's As Chaos Falls and Evans Head's Moans Like Lisa will also perform.

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.

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