EMPLOYED TO SERVE

SIGN WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH SPINEFARM RECORDS

NEW STUDIO ALBUM SET FOR SPRING 2019 RELEASE

UK / EUROPEAN SHOWS ANNOUNCED FOR DECEMBER 2018

EMPLOYED TO SERVE – the fast-rising UK collective who have staked their claim in heavy music’s future through consistent ferocious live shows, acclaimed studio recordings plus the desire to give a voice to a disillusioned generation – have signed a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records, a Universal Music Group label.

 

Formed in 2012, this young five-piece already have two full-length outings to their name, along with a series of EPs / singles; 2015 saw the release of the ‘Greyer Than You Remember’ album, with the award-winning ‘The Warmth Of A Dying Sun’ following two years later – a breakthrough mission statement as much as a record that saw the band achieve Kerrang! Magazine album of the year 2017, as well as performing at a number of European festivals (Download, Graspop, Boomtown, With Full Force, Lowlands, etc) and touring with the likes of Stick To Your Guns, Counterparts, Stray From The Path, Milk Teeth, Rolo Tomassi & Black Peaks.

 

Both live and on record, ETS make the point that no-compromise sonics and well-crafted songs can readily occupy the same heavy space, and their forthcoming studio album – set for release next spring, the first under the new Spinefarm deal – will venture even further down this path: an anthemically heavy statement of intent underpinned by positive, self-belief themes and the struggle to break away from the mediocre and the mundane.

 

In the build-up to the new album, the band will be playing a run of dates in the UK & mainland Europe on a bill that also features Stick To Your Guns & Counterparts; the tour visits Belgium, Germany & the UK, and concludes with an appearance at the Knockdown Festival in Karlsruhe, Germany.
