“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.” – Justine Jones, EMPLOYED TO SERVE
One of the most exciting heavy bands on the planet, and Kerrang! Magazines winners of the 2017 album of the year (with their previous record ‘Warmth Of A Dying Sun’), EMPLOYED TO SERVEcan today announce details of their much anticipated new album ‘Eternal Forward Motion’. The record will be released on May 10th through the bands new label Spinefarm Records (Ghost, Rammstein, Killing Joke, While She Sleeps) and the ferocious new single ‘Force Fed’ will be released this coming Friday the 25th January.
The band can also announce a couple of headline shows around the album release in May, at the Garage in London on May 10th and at the Classic Grand Lounge in Glasgow on May 11th. These add to an already burgeoning live diary that includes the festivals Groezrock in April and Hellfest and Jera On Air in June.
Vocalist Justine Jones explains – “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.”
Lyrically, ‘Eternal Forward Motion’ is about a jaded generation struggling to find a purpose and losing daily battles with self-doubt and external influences. Jones continues – “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.”
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 well as performing at a number of UK and European festivals (Download, Graspop, Boomtown, 2000trees, With Full Force, ArtcTanGent, Lowlands, etc) and touring with the likes of Code Orange, Stick To Your Guns, Counterparts, Stray From The Path, Milk Teeth, Rolo Tomassi, Jamie Lenman (as main support at Lenmania Festival) & Black Peaks.
