Employed To Serve have released brand new single, “The Mistake” – check it out HERE. 

The Mistake” is the third single from Employed To Serve’s forthcoming album, Conquering, due for release on September 17th via Spinefarm Records.   

Employed To Serve guitarist/vocalist, Sammy Urwin says, “‘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.” 

Drawing influence from the music of their youth and a new perspective on how to nurture the positive aspects of humanity and individual growth, Conquering is a celebration and acknowledgement of triumph in the face of a world that can be relentlessly adversarial.  

ETS began recording the album in the “unforgiving winter” of 2020; produced & mixed by Lewis Johns at The RanchSouthampton, mastered by Grant Berry at Fader MasteringEmployed To Serve took the time thrown at them by a world stopped still to write their most visceral material to date.
