“This song is about people who’d rather put other people down, instead of getting on with their own lives,” says frontwoman Justine Jones. “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!”
Conquering releases on September 17 and is Employed To Serve’s second full-length album on Spinefarm.
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. The band began recording the album in the”“unforgiving winter” of 2020; produced and mixed by Lewis Johns at The Ranch, Southampton, mastered by Grant Berry at Fader Mastering, Employed To Serve took the time thrown at them by a world stopped still to write their most visceral material to date.
Pre-orders are live, with an instant download of singles, “Exist” and “Mark Of The Grave,” plus special bundle options including t-shirts, hoodies, shorts, pink socks, skateboards and limited colour variant vinyl.
