AS FOLLOWS is a collaborative progressive rock project founded by Brooklyn-based musician, Ben Asaro (Urshurak, Twilight Odyssey, Phantom Isle).

Combining the cumulative knowledge and experience gathered whilst in the front lines of the NYC touring/recording scene, Ben decided to eschew the idea of forming yet another 'band' and strike out on his own to form a collaborative project in 2013 wherein musicians would be brought in for specific parts.

Collaborators thus far include Luigi Gennaro (PHANTOM ISLE, S.A. ADAMS), Gary Pickard (NEVEREVEN), Claire Brock (PINSTRIPES), Kurt Borst (MIDNIGHT HIGH), and Darren Deans (voice actor).
