The Skye Dailor Remembrance Day Project - September 1st
Every year here at Fuck Yeah Mastodon, we observe Skye Dailor Remembrance Day, where fans share how Mastodon’s music has saved them from depression and suicide. September 1st, 1990 was the day that Brann’s sister Skye took her own life after suffering from years of abuse, sickness, and bullying.
This was an event that devastated Brann, and the scars left behind from Skye’s death still haven’t fully healed. This is why we at FYM give Mastodon fans a chance to show Brann that he isn’t alone - just as Brann used Mastodon’s music to cope with Skye’s loss, us fans have used Mastodon’s music to cope with our own losses, struggles, and hardships. There are a number of ways that we can remember Skye and show support for Brann on September 1st, but here are some ideas that FYM supports the most:
WAYS TO REMEMBER SKYE ON SEPTEMBER 1ST:
- Wear Something Yellow. Yellow was Skye’s favorite color (this is why Brann frequently wears yellow shirts), so an article of clothing or accessories in yellow will work.
- Play the song “Crack the Skye” or the album Crack the Skye in its entirety.
- For those of you who want to dig a little deeper, write a letter to Brann explaining how Mastodon’s music has helped you in your own “daily storm”, and don’t be afraid to get personal. A few good-sized paragraphs will do. Once you have written this letter, submit them to the site HERE, or post the letter to your own personal blog and tag it as “Skye Dailor”. All letters will be approved or reblogged on September 1st.
- If you are religious, offer prayers for the Dailor family.
***SPECIAL NOTICE: Brann and his wife Susanne read the content on this site, so PLEASE think about what’s going into your letter before you write and submit it.

Please re-blog this post so it will reach as many fans as possible! I’m hoping for a large turnout :)
"Hey guys, LOOK!"
Just a reminder to all the Masto-Fans in the Los Angeles area, the Jimmy Kimmel Live show has already posted the September calender of shows on the 1iota website but as of 1:40am LA local time, tickets for Mastodon’s Sept. 15 Outdoor Mini-Concert HAVE NOT been made available as of yet. We’ll keep checking back on 1iota. Most likely they’ll be made available this week. Hope to see the lot of you there. - Kev
