Biography

At Long Last started in 2007 after the breakup of the popular local metal band, The Inferi. After the Inferi split due to members going off to college, guitarist Ian Jerdon was left without a band when vocalist Bob Hunsberger contacted him about starting up another metal band with some mixed hardcore influences. They agreed to start jamming and working on songs. Drummer Ryan Braun had attended previous Inferi shows and expressed an interest in joining the band. At the time, he was playing in another local metal band, June Sets Fire, as the bass player. June Sets Fire soon disbanded due to lack of activity. Braun’s close friend and bandmate, Jeff Cassel, soon joined on second guitar and Dave Dry added on bass. This lineup would play around 25 shows between Fall 2007 and spring 2008. In the fall of 2008, the band recorded its debut EP, “CONQUEST,” with Basement Critter Studios. The album was self-released and the band sold over 100 copies on the night of the release and steadily sold more as time went on. The band supported acts such as The Warriors, Emmure, With Blood Comes Cleansing, and Within the Ruins during this time. However, Jeff Cassel soon departed on a summer long trip to Portugal to visit family and upon his return, left for Florida to attend Full Sail University. From here, Dave decided to leave the band because he no longer possessed the proper equipment to play live shows. Ryan also decided to leave the band due to personal reasons and stress. The original lineup played its last show on September 8th, as support for the band Across Five Aprils. From there, Ian Jerdon’s cousin Nate Parker was picked up on second guitar, Aaron Throop on bass, and Chris Fox on drums. This lineup is the current lineup of the band and is working hard on making the band a full time endeavor. After recording a new EP entitled “Tartarus” with Matt Buckley of Bowling Otter Studios, the band plans to release the CD with help by Broken Hope Productions. The band is in the works of booking a summer tour with several bands and hopes to gain listeners and fans of their music, and to see more and more people come out to shows and supporting them.
