The Follow is slated to release its seventh album in the first quarter of 2011. With six albums, one DVD, and hundreds of live performances, the band have received airplay on college and commercial radio across North America while supporting the releases by touring in the United States and Europe. This Panoramic Rock trio from Columbia, Missouri, U.S. are influenced by U2, Radiohead, and Pink Floyd and have enjoyed sharing stages with various artists such as Plain White T’s, Billy Corgan’s Zwan, & Gravity Kills. The Follow’s last album release, Mixtures - The Remixes (2009), features electro-rock mixes of songs from their previous five albums, Seveneverend, Origins, nowaitingplease, Lost Sessions, and Up With The Sun.

In 2010 the band released the Rock for Kent live concert film. On September 18th, 2009, the band performed a live concert that was broadcasted into the virtual world of Second Life (SL) using a 9-camera video mix. The live audience experienced the video feed on one set of screens, PLUS an SL camera view on a second pair of projections. It made for an amazing evening of energy & emotion. All DVD sales benefit Troy's brother, Kent (who has been diagnosed with ALS - Lou Gehrig's disease).

Best friends formed a band in high school called The Follow that has endured two decades. The driving force behind the band is their friendship and the spiritual connection that they have within the music. The Follow celebrates with you, cries with you, shouts with you, and rocks with you! Heart-felt sincerity and a commitment to explore internal issues with an original sound allows the band to be completely universal and addicting. If you wondered what happened to bands that search for a deeper meaning and some sort of fresh musical identity, simply look to The Follow.
