Watch Employed To Serve’s new video


Employed To Serve have released a video for their new track I Spend My Days (Wishing Them Away).

It will feature on their new album The Warmth Of A Dying Sun, which will launch on May 19 via Holy Roar Records.

Guitarist Sammy Urwin says: “Everyone’s had it at some point in their life, where you’re stuck in a bad job without any real direction. You’re constantly counting down the hours until you don’t have to be there anymore.

“Sometimes these situations can be hard to break free from, but it’s important you do otherwise everyday is just a reflection of the last.”

Employed To Serve have also announced a run of five European dates with Palm Reader which will take place at the end of May and beginning of June.

Before then, they’ll head out on tour across the UK and Ireland with some dates with Heck. Find Employed To Serve’s full tour itinerary below.
