We’ve got the second single from Guards for you to listen to and download. “Coming True” takes a simple new-wave riff and builds layers upon it, reaching cinematic climaxes, reminiscent of past projects we’ve worked on together…
Guards is a trio made up of Loren Humphrey, Richie Follin, and Madeline Follin of Cults. Together, Element and them have collaborated on countless projects, including the FUTURE NATURE and MAKE IT COUNT soundtracks, a ton of commercials and shorts, along with the music for the MAKE IT COUNT Contest Series, including the 2009 series that was set to Richie and Loren’s band, Willowz.
Guards are closing out the year with an East Coast tour (dates below), and the full-length album ”In Guards We Trust” will be out February 5th. For more info on Guards and past Element projects, including the music video to “I See It Coming”, check out THIS blog post.

The Beantown Sundown was a wonderful art and skate filled night at Orchard Skateshop in Boston.
Upstairs, three rooms were filled with alters, fine art and found items by Element Advocate and artist Mike Kershnar. Included were copies of Kershnar’s latest ‘zine, which contains a short story inspired by Boston’s history and skate scene. Click below to download the ‘zine.
Downstairs, Donny Barley, PJ Ladd and Levi Brown signed autographs for visitors and guests.
Vibes were high in the Orchard gallery and everyone was stoked to have Donny Barley, PJ Ladd, Levi Brown, and Panama Dan on hand. Peep the ‘zine, and get out there and get creative in the streets.
