Based out of the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, the band features drummer Max Portnoy, guitarist Ryland Holland, bassist Kris Rank, and lead vocalist/keyboardist Thomas Cuce. At the ages of just 12 and 13, NEXT TO NONE began writing their own music and performing live around their home territory. A year later they went into the for the first time, recording a three-song EP. Having promoted themselves online and in their local area, NEXT TO NONE sold over 500 CDs on their own and quickly gained experience playing live and building an audience.

Soon after the release of their EP, NEXT TO NONE released their breakout track “Fortune Cookie,” which featured cameos from Anthrax, Dee Snider, Chris Jericho and the hosts of VH1’s That Metal Show. They have continued to promote themselves through social media, gaining over 90,000 views on YouTube and over 15,000 likes on Facebook. NEXT TO NONE have been honing their live chops in support of bands such as The Winery Dogs, Adrenaline Mob, Virgil Donati, and Felix Martin, and have proudly taken part in the Vans Warped Tour and Progressive Nation At Sea 2014.
