At Best are a trio of metalheads gone indie.
Formed in 2017 in South Jersey, the band features lead vocalist and guitarist Lennon Cantwell, bassist Alicia Dickerson, and drummer Mason Ingling. By combining their various musical backgrounds from past and current projects, At Best's sound ranges from 90's D.I.Y. nostalgia to heavy-yet-melodic shoegaze. They've been compared to intertwining a mixture of bands' best features: the songwriting and lyrical styles of Elliott Smith, the ferociousness of The Smashing Pumpkins, the driving force of the Foo Fighters, and reminiscence and passion of Circa Survive.
At Best released their first debut single "Words in a Web" March 2nd, 2019 and released their second single "Changing Shape" Friday, June 28th; both singles were recorded and produced by Matt Weber at The Gradwell House. Their most recent single is accompanied by a music video directed and produced by Jay Yachetta of Luxwav Films. At Best debuted Changing Shape on its release date at "Live at 5" on Philadelphia Alternative Rock Station Radio 104.5.
After former drummer Steph Brettman stepped down from the drum throne late spring of 2019, Mason Ingling of In The Presence Of Wolves stepped in to fill her shoes, remaining to live up to their "Metalheads Gone Indie" tagline. At Best have since played numerous shows in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area and are currently writing new music incorporating Mason's progressive metal dynamics.
For the future, At Best plans to get back into the studio and crank out two more singles by early 2020 and compile an EP in the spring.
Formally known as Burned Out Still Glowing, the trio have toured around the States and play frequent shows in the Philadelphia area. They have played along acts such as Old City Revival, Such Gold, Pointless, and Cappadonna (yes, really!). Over the past two years under the new name, they've gone forth with a mission to outperform themselves with every set through their high-energy live shows. At Best have painted their sonic canvas with raw emotion over driving instrumentals, striving to put the human element back into contemporary music.
