I See Stars and We Came As Romans closed out the 10th annual iMatter Festival in Horseheads NY. This was a free general admission festival put on by the iMatter Foundation. The goal is to raise suicide awareness, and their message is You matter. For more information about the iMatter Foundation, visit their website at https://www.imatterfoundation.org/.

After a long hot day at the Chemung County Fairgrounds, both We Came As Romans and I See Stars closed out this festival with a bang. Despite being a roughly 12 hour festival, the crowd fed off the energy both of these bands brought. With a closing performance of I See Stars ‘Murder Mitten’ – every person in the ground area was jumping and roaring. We Came As Romans only fueled the already high energy, with massive amounts of fans crowd surfing, moshing, and taking a stance against suicide.
