Guards are excited to announce that they will be joining Queens of the Stone Age on tour this fall, kicking off September 10 in Toronto. Afterwards, Guards will head overseas for a four week trek supporting MGMT on their European run. On tour in support of their acclaimed new album In Guards We Trust, Guards has spent most of the year on the road, including outings with Alt-J, Palma Violets, Best Coast, and Portugal.The Man as well as show-stopping sets at Coachella, SXSW and Primavera Sound. The band is currently gearing up to perform at Lollapalooza, Osheaga Festival, and FYF Festival. See below for more details.
  
Guards recently performed three songs from their new album on NPR.org's "Tiny Desk" series. Watch it here: http://n.pr/1e0m6Xi

In Guards We Trust has received overwhelming acclaim since its release earlier this year. Esquire named the band one of "15 Music Artists to Watch in 2013" and Vogue selected them as "Band of the Week," with additional praise coming from Stereogum, Pitchfork, Wall Street Journal, Buzzfeed, and Elle, among others. The music video for their hit single "Ready To Go" premiered a few months back across multiple channels at MTV (MTV2, MTVu, MTV Buzzworthy Blog, MTV Hive and VH1.com) and can be viewed here. Their highly-buzzed SXSW appearances earned them a spot at the top of several festival roundups, including NPR Music, who selected the band as one of "15 Essential Moments From SXSW 2013," praising, "I walked across the street to the Empire Control Room, toward the sound of good, strong, guitar-laden pop...I loved what I was hearing."

Founded in New York City by singer Richie Follin, Guards also features Kaylie Church and Loren Humphrey.
