Employed To Serve have announced a run of five summer shows across England.

The band, who will also play a set at this year’s Download festival (opens in new tab), will head out to celebrate the first anniversary of their album Warmth Of A Dying Sun (opens in new tab).

They’ll play the album in full during stops in Newcastle, Wolverhampton, Brighton, Bournemouth and London. Support will be provided by Rough Hands.

Speaking to Metal Hammer last year about the album (opens in new tab), vocalist Justine Jones said: “The first album will always be special to me, of course, but this album is so much better.

“I like playing it more; it’s more challenging. We’ve played the first album’s songs for a couple of years, so we’re very comfortable with them now. It’s nice to constantly push yourself.”
