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.

Three Chapters

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

 

The new album “Far From Any Shore” will be released in 2024.  Produced by Chris Tabarez, it boasts lead single “Acid Desert” and presents a concept album structure that takes listeners on a journey from hearing the call to adventure, crossing the threshold into unfamiliar realms, defeating the monstrosities of the submerged unconscious, and returning to the world with the uncomfortable task of reconciliation.
