This Story should probably begin in the summer of 1989. We had just released our first record on a major mainstream label. The album, at First Watch had sold well right out of the box in our home state of California and we had recently been selling out the famed Roxy in Hollywood. It seemed like the sky was the limit! We embarked on our first real national tour that August. The band had developed a new stage show and we were eager to try it out on new crowds nationwide.

We opened our show with Kingdom Of Rock and tore right into mystery Many years which were our two favorite songs off of First Watch to play live. The first radio single was I'll Never Leave You, so we played that third in the set. We always felt that we should play a ballad fourth (it always seemed like that was some unwritten law back then) so we opted for Miracle which was really the only song that could be remotely construed as a ballad off of First Watch. The grand finale was always Rock In Victory.

 This is where Tony Palacios and Paul Cawley, who was the original Guardian vocalist, (a bit of history for all you new fans) traded frenzied guitar leads in a live jam version that usually included long bass and drum breakdowns and lots of crowd participation. This was later 80's Pop Metal in full Glory!

But Guardian didn't start out as just any hairspray Hollywood Band. Our roots went much deeper than L.A. Glam. We actually started out wearing space armor and playing some of the spaciest and heaviest music on the L.A. club scene. We formally stopped wearing the armor in late 1987 but "Saints Battalion" is a remnant from the armor days that survived on to First Watch. Our producer at that time, Oz Fox thought that it was an interesting tune and decided to include it on that record.
