By now I’m sure you’re all well aware that the 14th of May brings great treasures, namely in the 3rd LP effort of Employed To Serve, Eternal Forward Motion. The Woking 5 piece blew the underground hardcore scene to pieces with the release of their 2017 album The Warmth of a Dying Sun achieving feats that most could have never have predicted. Through hard work and great music, the band got taken on tour with the likes of Code Orange and Stick To Your Guns, whilst ushering in a new generation of underground bands and bettering the scene. Their contribution to British heavy music has been a treat to see over the past few years and here’s to hoping Eternal Forward Motion is yet another leap forward.
Lyrically, the band’s latest single touches on bleaker, yet important subjects. Employed To Serve frontwoman had the following to say about it, “In 2017, 5,821 suicides were registered in the UK and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year olds. 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.” Find help here: https://www.iasp.info/
