Old friends, new kicks. En Garde is a band from Akron, OH that was formed in November of 2011 by Ross Horvath (vocals/guitar) and Andy Hendricks (drums). At that time Hendricks was actively playing in longtime passion project "Annabel" and Horvath had been champing at the bit after spending almost a decade with "A Voice Like Rhetoric".
En Garde's two-piece minimalism was a new approach of writing for both Hendricks and Horvath. Locking in together to produce tight angular foreground momentums and layered negative spaces allowed En Garde to create compositions that are engaging and interesting.
