Constant Follower

Constant Follower is the Scottish band formed around songwriter Stephen McAll. Their acclaimed debut 'Neither Is, Nor Ever Was' was released on legendary New York indie label Shimmy Disc in 2021. The album was nominated for the 2022 Scottish Album of the Year Award (SAY) and found its way onto multiple ‘Best Albums of 2021’ lists, leading to a string of notable performances including Austin’s SXSW 2022 and an iconic set from the crown of Scotland’s National Wallace Monument.

A triumph after tragedy, the album was McAll’s first work many years after an unprovoked attack in his late teens left him with catastrophic head injuries, partially paralysed and unable to write or play guitar. He spent the following decade recovering on the West Coast of Scotland, before eventually picking up the guitar to allow the songs that form ‘Neither Is, Nor Ever Was’ to emerge.

The band visit SXSW celebrating the launch of their new collaborative album ‘Even Days Dissolve’ on 14th April with lead single 'Waves Crash Here' arriving 2nd March.
