The band

Follow Me Dark is a genre-pushing alternative rock/metal band formed in Grass Valley, CA in 2019. Consisting of Stephen Kozak vocals/guitar), Sean Delphi (guitar), Elliott Grove (bass), and Jim Boots (drums), the band’s sound ranges from wailing metal riffs to intricate textural interludes, from melodic rock choruses to emotional breakdowns, from bliss to hysteria, agony to triumph.  

 

The music takes the listener on a journey through emotional and spiritual peaks and valleys, daring them to undergo a heroic journey through strange inner realms.

The Debut album
& The New EP

The band’s self-titled debut album began in 2019.  When the pandemic hit in early 2020, a planned west coast summer tour was scrapped, and the band decided to finish recording their album.  The result is a 64 minute odyssey through a wide range of genres, textures, and moods.  “Follow Me Dark” was released in December 2020 to critical acclaim.

 

The new EP “An Offering” was released in April 2022 featuring three epic new tracks.  Streaming now on all platforms.

Official Videos

The band came together quickly and organically, as the four members discovered an unanticipated musical harmony and a strong interpersonal dynamic. The music of Follow Me Dark ranges from bleak and expansive stoner metal to dancey new-wave, from anthemic alternative rock to haunted, atmospheric instrumentals.
