At First

In the current time of home isolation alternative metalband At First has released their videoclip for the song “Come Get Your Entertainment” on Friday 17 April 2020, a track about information overload en losing touch with reality. “Come Get Your Entertainment” is taken from the album ‘Deadline’, released on January 31st 2020. 

“Jamie Jochems (lead-singer At First): “Come Get Your Entertainment” is about the constant stream of information we process everyday and the numbing effect entertainment can have on us. Especially in times like these we think it’s important to limit ourselves to trustworthy resources of information, to not lose touch with reality and to maintain in contact with others, even though it’s at distance””

At First pushes the boundaries of alternative rock and metal and shows broad influences. Influences that vary from Rage Against the Machine to Alter Bridge and Halestorm to Northlane. Those boundaries are often broken by their modern, complex sound where growling riffs are accompanied by alternate grooves. With a variety of sounds and singing styles, At First tells a story that will keep you interested.

With its new singles ‘Samsara’ and ‘For What It’s Worth’, the band takes a new progressive approach with electronic elements and deeper riffs.

At First has shared the stage with acts such as Bring Me The Horizon, Textures, The Royal and Dool. With their energetic live performance and no-nonsense mentality At First has won several band contests and played at festivals and venues like AFAS Live, Breda Barst and PAARD, the Hague. With their debut EP ‘Dreams Inc.’ At First received praising critiques from the Dutch press such as Aardschok, McSharq.nl, Never Mind the Hype, IndieXL and Pitkings.
