Award-winning rock duo: Follow No One, breaks all industry norms with release of “Fate,” a modern cinematic rock concept album that brings back the magic of Rock.
Described as a cross between Queensryche and Styx on a hard rock foundation; Follow No One draws from the purest classic and raw hard rock sounds that defined an era, while adding their own unique twist on the genre.
Follow No One is comprised of two industry leaders, Pedro Murino Almeida and Rich Hall. A Portuguese native, Almeida is a classically trained composer and guitar virtuoso who works in both film and video and found success in his musical acts. Lead singer Hall is an American-born singer- songwriter who initially made his mark in the theater at a young age, but discovered his powerful melodic vocals matched perfectly with rock.
Follow No One is not some rock throwback group. Instead, the artists have fused the greatest elements of rock’s past with the present and blended all into an authentic new take on rock that renders jaw-dropping guitar work and distinct vocal stylings.
Named the Best Rock Act at the Nashville-based JMA 2019 Awards; the world’s largest Indie Music Awards, Follow No One continues to pave their own lane, as their name suggests. Evident in their newly released album, “Fate”, 17-track cinematic hard rock concept album is an industry game-changer.
The title track “Fate” takes listeners through the true-life story of Hall; husband, father, Army war veteran, and corporate executive, a man who appeared to have it all – jolted to his deathbed in an instant. “Fate” chronicles Hall’s journey and the music accompanies the listener through the drama and acts as a compass from track to track. Audio scenes and flashbacks added between the tracks further envelop listeners into the storyline and guide them along the way. Each track is stylistically and tempo-driven, employing myriad rock techniques, giving the album its edgy and unique feel.
Dropping on April 8, the self-titled single “Fate” is a rhetorical song that prompts fans to reflect upon their own lives. Hall poses a question; Was it fate all along, or something we created…
Did we just screw things up”.
Written, performed, and produced by the duo, “Fate” is a heavy rock album that transitions through melodic rock and concludes with a truly epic finale.
Follow No One invites fans, both old and new, to travel with them through a musical journey, and also to join their mailing list for some free music and the inside scoop with many surprises along the trek before the album’s release in May. Follow No One provides an exciting and new brand of rock music, that will span the generations.
Get ready rock fans…FATE is calling!
