NEXT TO NONE is a progressive metalcore band based out of Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania featuring Max Portnoy on drums, Derrick Schneider on guitar, Kris Rank on bass, and Thomas Cuce on keyboards and lead vocals.
The band was formed in 2013 and spent several years performing live and writing music. In 2015, Next To None released their first album "A Light In The Dark" through Inside Out Music and was produced by Mike Portnoy. This album received rave reviews worldwide, which credited them as one of the youngest bands to break into the progressive metal genre, also landing Max Portnoy, Rhythm Magazines "BEST NEW DRUMMER OF 2015" award.
Next To None's second Album "PHASES" is a combination of melodic choruses and harsh vocals from the metalcore genre fused with prog-metal riffage. Phases is a jam packed 1:18 long album of insane music that begins with the brutality found in songs like ANSWER ME and BEG to the emotional angst of ALONE and ISOLATION/DENIAL. This album will leave you wanting more.
Next To None can be seen on tour now, dates available on
