Employed To Serve Premiere New Song “The Mistake”

Employed To Serve have premiered a new song titled “The Mistake.” This track is from the band’s new album “Conquering,“ which will be released on September 17. Sammy Urwin commented:

“‘The Mistake‘ is about letting other people’s opinions of you seep into your subconscious and filling you with self-doubt. In life, you can’t always win over everyone. But don’t let the haters stifle your true potential and stand in between you and your goals.”

Employed To Serve Premiere “Mark Of The Grave” Music Video

Employed To Serve have premiered a new video for their latest single “Mark Of The Grave.” This track is from the band’s new album “Conquering,“ which will be released on September 17.

Justine Jones commented:

“With this video we just wanted to have fun. After months of being cooped up inside, we wanted to focus on a project that was more light-hearted. We shot the music video at Miracle Theatre in Cornwall with director Ryan Mackfall.

The theatre was kind enough to give us free reign of their studio and stage costumes. Everything was shot in front of a green screen to maximize the opportunity to have fun with the edit. We then sent over a few notes to VFX artist Nadav Rotem and assistant Jake Potter, as soon as they came back with Sammy doing a solo on a flying, flaming skull, I knew it was going to be my favorite video — it’s wild and we love it.”

“This song is about people who’d rather put other people down, instead of getting on with their own lives. When writing this song we wanted to try our hand at writing a positive metal anthem for people to blast when they’re having a shitty day. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we had fun recording and writing it! Stay kind \m/”

Employed To Serve Premiere “Exist” Music Video

Employed To Serve have premiered a new video for their new song “Exist.” This track is from the band’s new album “Conquering,” which will be released on September 17.

Frontwoman Justine Jones said the following about the new song and video:

“‘Exist‘ is a song that celebrates the highs and lows of existing. For this video, I really wanted to capture the excitement of being a pre-teen and discovering the absolute joy that is music. I loved the idea of getting into someone’s head at that time and them daydreaming about being on stage with the band you love, like we did when we were that age and recently in the past year when we couldn’t play shows!

It took six months of planning due to the pandemic and because we had to source someone who could create one-off figures of each band member. We were lucky enough to come across Mattachine Society from Brooklyn, who creates awesome bootlegs. For the model stage and backline, [guitarist] Sammy [Urwin] and I channelled our inner Art Attack and made that during the winter lockdown to keep our minds from the apocalypse.

When having meetings about how to dress the set and actors, we wanted to shout out as many of our mates’ bands as possible and leave little Easter eggs for people to find with each re-watch of the video.

The most important aspect of the video for me was finding a young energetic girl to play the really stoked kid. When I was growing up, metal was a very male-dominated genre and I always felt a bit out of place. I feel that this is a different story now with so many women in bands. Working in the industry and in the crowd, it’s becoming normalized, which is really exciting.”

She also added the following about the new album:

“‘Conquering‘ is about rising above adversity and self-doubt. We’re really excited to share our latest album — I feel it’s our best work to date. We wanted to go a more metal orientated direction with this album and see how far we could push our musical capabilities.”

Employed To Serve Premiere “Party’s Over” Music Video

Employed To Serve have premiered a new video for their new song “Party’s Over.” A limited edition 7″ featuring that track and “Harsh Truth“ (feat. Stray From The Path‘s Andrew Dijorio) will be released on November 6. Pre-orders are available on Bandcamp. Justine Jones commented:

“‘Party’s Over‘ is about the fast decay of the unsustainable world we live in. Frustratingly, despite our best efforts, the quest for a sustainable way of living feels hopeless due to what humanity deems a birth right rather than a luxury. What we think we need in order to live just does not seem compatible with our eco system, making me feel like we’re aliens that have taken the planet hostage.”

Employed To Serve Premiere New Video For “Harsh Truth (Relived)” Feat. Stray From The Path’s Drew Dijorio

Employed To Serve have premiered a new video for their new version of “Harsh Truth.” This version of the track, which is titled “Harsh Truth (Relived),” features Stray From The Path’s Drew Dijorio. The original version appears on the band’s latest album “Eternal Forward Motion.”

Frontwoman Justine Jones commented:

“‘Harsh Truth (Relived)‘ is a reminder that past demons have a habit of rearing their ugly heads again, and that doesn’t spell defeat. It means you stare back at them with more determination than ever before. This song is a reworking of the album track ‘Harsh Truth‘ that sees the song take a more primitive and visceral shape.

The track also features a guest spot from our friend Drew Dijorio (Stray From The Path) which takes the song to a whole other level. As soon as the guest spot started to take shape when we were reworking the track, we knew instantly Drew was the person for the job. The way he articulates his words with such venom fits perfectly with the groove whilst adding even more aggression to the tracks already punishing presence.”

Employed To Serve have premiered a new video for their new song “Eternal Forward Motion.” This is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on May 10.

Justine Jones commented:

“We’re very excited to present the title track for our new album ‘Eternal Forward Motion‘. This is the last single that will be out before the album’s release, and we feel it’s one of our most ambitious songs yet. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it.

The song and video is about the idea that no matter how bad your situation is in the present, there is always time to improve. You’ll always wish you started living how you wanted yesterday, so take a step forward in the right direction.”

Employed To Serve have premiered a new video for their new song “Harsh Truth.” This track is from the band’s new album “Eternal Forward Motion,“ which will be released on May 10. Justine Jones commented:

“In 2017, 5,821 suicides were registered in the UK and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year olds. These statistics are staggering, but all is not lost as there has been a decline in attempts thanks to the work of charities such as Samaritans. Lyrically, ‘Harsh Truth‘ is an anthem for the ill-represented masses who are struggling behind the veil of positive social media posts. The world is a better place with you in it, so stay alive and seek help as it’s always there.”

Employed To Serve To Release New Album “Eternal Forward Motion” In May

Employed To Serve have announced that their new album “Eternal Forward Motion“ will be released on May 10 via Spinefarm. The effort’s first single, “Force Fed,” will be released on Friday (January 25).

Frontwoman Justine Jones commented:

“Without struggle there is no triumph – the human mind manages to flick between polar opposites, from taking life one day at a time and living in the moment, to self-destructing and creating a bitter outlook. It’s important to acknowledge both. Keep moving forward and don’t look back.”

She continued:

“‘Eternal Forward Motion‘ came after 5 years of perfecting the kind of band that we wanted to be. This is the album that defines who we are as a band and we couldn’t be prouder of it.”

She also added the following about the lyrical content:

“When contemplating what the future holds for one’s self, it can be quite daunting thinking about whether you will ever be truly content with your life and the person that you are. In the fast paced society we live in, it can cause many people to burn out and chase unobtainable expectations of themselves.

We are also now faced with the social media boom leading many people to be plagued by self-comparison and fear of missing out. All these distractions can cause one to dwell on what they don’t have and take for granted some the aspects of life that we should be thankful for each day.”
