NASHVILLE, March 30, 2009—Gospel rock band Guardian have announced the premier of a unique Internet video show that will encompass live performances, interviews, and candid reality-show footage.

The project reunites original band members Jamie Rowe, Tony Palacios, David Bach and Karl Ney, along with newest member, guitarist Jamey Perrenot (Taylor Swift, LeAnn Rimes).

“The idea for “House of Guardian” came from a show we played this past December to a crowd of 80,000 people in Buenos Aires, Argentina” says vocalist Jamie Rowe. “It was exciting to find out that we still have quite a following —even though we have been a bit too busy with new ventures to tour much over the past few years. We wanted to figure out a way to bring people in to see the band if we can't always tour. An internet video show made perfect sense.”

The first episode was filmed live at the home of new member Perrenot, in Spring Hill, TN. “Jamey is the new guy in the band so it was part of his initiation that we trashed his house!” jokes bassist David Bach. “Actually, it worked out great because Jamey has a nice studio at his house and we just ran cables into his living room and set up live.”

Perrenot was recruited by drummer Karl Ney at the church they both attend—when Guardian needed a live show replacement for guitarist Tony Palacios—who is an in-demand mix engineer. “Tony's grueling schedule does not allow for much touring and we hit it off so well with Jamey that we asked him to join the band” adds Ney. “Fortunately, Tony liked Jamey as well, so now we're a five-piece!”

The band will also release a Spanish version (La Casa De Guardian) of the webcast on behalf of their loyal Spanish-speaking following. “The huge crowd at our show in Buenos Aires was another amazing reminder of how awesome our Latin America fans are,” adds Rowe. “Our Spanish records and tours have been a favorite highlight of our career and we will try to add as many Spanish songs as we can to our live set on the show.”

The band will release the live tracks from the show on iTunes and other digital outlets later this year. Future plans also include a new album and more international shows. “But, all in good time” says Bach. “We're just having fun with this. It's like family reunion among brothers. It's a blast just getting together and playing again. I hope the show is as much fun to watch as it is to make.”

A video preview of House of Guardian is now online at: youtube.com/houseofguardian.

House of Guardian will debut on April 15 at: www.houseofguardian.com —with the premier of La Casa De Guardian (www.lacasadeguardian.com) to launch in May.

This is horrible news. I guess the 'Crunch' incarnation is kaput. :unsure:


Nope. Guardian is not full-time for any of them....they're just coming out of dormancy and declaring themselves active again. Vic told me Crunch is still a go, but it is not a full-time endeavor either...these bands aren't recording/touring machines...they'll work casually...
