The Whosoevers’ Sonny (From P.O.D.) Interviews Korn’s Fieldy And Former Bandmate Head Making Their First Appearance Together In Six Years

And The Whosovers’ Ryan Ries Hosts Converstions With “Soul Surfer” Bethany Hamilton, And Metal Mulisha’s Brian Deegan

Get off your couch and join the movement.

That’s the word from THE WHOSOEVERS about their upcoming “THREAT TO FORMALIZED RELIGION…I AM” CONFERENCE set for Friday, April 20 and Saturday, April 21 in Diamond Bar, CA.  Formed by Sonny (P.O.D.) and Ryan Ries in 2008, THE WHOSOEVERS are a worldwide movement leading the way to reflect hope, life, and love in culture. For the event, featuring live musical performances and engaging forums, the WHOSOEVERS have assembled a group of influential musicians and artists, along with athletes from the freestyle motocross, surf and skate worlds for their second annual free, all ages conference.

“My favorite thing about being a part of The Whosoever movement is gathering together with a bunch of people who are just as messed up as I am,” WHOSOEVERS member Head (formerly of Korn) says.  “One day we will get it right…LOL.”

“I’m excited to be apart of the Whosoever event with a great group of positive role models sharing a message of love,” says Bethany Hamilton (Soul Surfer).

“It’s cool to reach out to the youth from our point of view,” says Freestyle Motocross champion Brian Deegan (Metal Mulisha).  “We’ve been there and lived it.”

Fellow WHOSOEVER Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf) adds, “It’s awesome to be able to sit down with crazy famous rock stars, and find out that they are just ‘whosoevers’, like me, with miraculous stories, like anyone else who has eyes to see the odds that we’ve all beaten to still be breathing.”

Legendary skateboarder Lance Mountain notes, “We have all reached goals this youth culture aspire to obtain. We can overwhelming tell you it can leave you empty or needing more without the truth.”
