“Follin sings over a cavernous gallop of drums and fuzzed out bass, eventually developing into a chamber pop opera replete with harmonized vocals and churning strings.”
– Under The Radar
“…catchy, anthemic pop, as you can hear on new single “Last Stand.” 
 – BrooklynVegan

Guards have announced their first LP in 6 years entitled ‘Modern Hymns’. It will be out 5/22 via Kobalt. The band has also shared their first single “Last Stand”.

When talking about the track Rickie James Follin says, “Born into hell I had to fight to survive/ I barely made it out of there alive/ and when you tell me that’s all in vain/ I pray about it just to ease the pain/ that step you’re taking it could be your last/ to be forgotten yeah it’s just the past/ I know it now that we could turn this tide/ so this step right here will be my greatest stride/ last stand/ we’re getting over while we can/last stand/ we’re getting over while we can/ we’re getting over while we can/we’re getting over while we can/we’re getting over while we can/ sweet velvet vision in the rising sun/ well I’ve come to say that you’re the only one/ and when you see me in the dead of night/ well all I ask is that you treat me right/ now hop aboard this is our exit train/ and once we leave it’s never quite the same/ we’re here to make it never going back/ let’s never fake it let the shadows cast/ last stand/ we’re getting over while we can/last stand/ we’re getting over while we can/ we’re getting over while we can/we’re getting over while we can/we’re getting over while we can/ I turn my head I see you watching me/ I gotta fight it gotta fight the need/ we’re gunna make it yeah we’re gunna last/ just give me time I won’t repeat the past/ last stand/ we’re getting over while we can/last stand/ we’re getting over while we can.”
