Employed To Serve are born out of a time where it felt like their generation had given up on their hopes and aspirations. The music is abrasive and unforgiving but the band have a continuing positive theme present in the lyrics throughout their releases, trying to better yourself instead of getting stuck in the groundhog day of a miserable, mundane existence. Employed To Serve is about striving to achieve with a belief that something good will come from our generation’s lifetime.
After the release of their debut record ‘Greyer Than You Remember’, Employed To Serve have made it their mission to decimate every venue in the UK and Europe that lay in their wake. Famed for their relentless live charge, they have made appearances at Damnation Festival, Incubate Festival as well as touring with the likes of Rolo Tomassi, Milk Teeth, Black Peaks alongside their own headline tours.
2017 marked the release of Employed To Serve’s sophomore album ‘The Warmth Of A Dying Sun’ to huge critical acclaim including Kerrang’s album of the year. Recorded at The Ranch Production House with producer Lewis Johns (Gnarwolves, Funeral For A Friend), this record was written with the intent of creating a heavier and darker album by a band who has established their sound and with that confidence, have created their strongest release yet.
