Their second album, ‘The Warmth Of A Dying Sun’ saw Employed to Serve scale new heights. Now the band are following up one of the best albums of 2017 with new effort, ‘Eternal Forward Motion’. Frontwoman Justine Jones teases what’s to come.
Hey Justine, what are you up to at the mo?
Hey, what’s up!? We’re just on our last two dates of the Stick To Your Guns and Counterparts tour and having a great time. I’m also mentally preparing myself for the overnight drive to Germany after our London show!
Are you ready for 2019? It sounds like it’s going to be a big year for you guys.
Couldn’t be more excited. We recorded the album in May 2018 because we wanted to not record in the dead of winter for once so we’ve been sitting on the album for a while now and can’t wait to finally release it!
‘Force Fed’ is brutal, what made you choose that for your comeback track?
It’s one of our personal favourite songs, and it has a little bit of everything on the album, so I feel it’s a good representation of what to expect. We also love playing it live.
Do you already know which tracks you’re going to drop as singles, or are you going to play it by ear?
Yeah, we’ve known for a while now, pretty much as soon as we recorded it with Lewis. I feel like this album has more songs that would work well as a single while still sitting well in the context of the album.
