Employed To Serve have dropped a brand new single and video.
Titled 'Harsh Truth', it's the latest taster of their brand new album, 'Eternal Forward Motion', which is set for release on 10th May via Spinefarm Records / Universal.
"In 2017, 5,821 suicides were registered in the UK and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year olds," explains vocalist Justine Jones, diving into the meaning behind the song. "These statistics are staggering, but all is not lost as there has been a decline in attempts thanks to the work of charities such as Samaritans. Lyrically, ‘Harsh Truth’ is an anthem for the ill-represented masses who are struggling behind the veil of positive social media posts. The world is a better place with you in it, so stay alive and seek help as it’s always there."
Employed To Serve have a hefty batch of live dates planned for later this year, including appearances at Groezrock, Hellfest and Jera On Air, as well as the UK based All Points East and Slam Dunk festivals.
