EMPLOYED TO SERVE have revealed the video for latest track ‘Good For Nothing’, with the track getting its world exclusive debut play on the That’s Not Metal (podcast) last Friday the 7th April. The single is out now on all streaming and downloading sites.
Guitarist Sammy Urwin says: “People have brought up many times that we are a band with a female vocalist, and that’s not a problem but we have been included in articles and other publishings just because of the gender of our singer and not because of the music we make. Though the intentions for this are usually good we find this is really a backward mentality in the quest for equality. We’re not interested in having a USP, we’re just a band of people making music. Good For Nothing is about getting praise for something that is irrelevant and not because of hard work and ability.”
The band will be releasing their highly anticipated, sophomore album ‘The Warmth Of A Dying Sun’ on May 19th through Holy Roar Records.
Produced by Lewis Johns (Gnarwolves, Funeral For A Friend, Rolo Tomassi), the band also released ‘I Spend My Days (Wishing Them Away)’ in February, which is available to stream and download now, and was given it’s world debut on the Radio 1 Rock Show.
