Employed To Serve are a British / band from Woking, Surrey, currently signed to Spinefarm Records. Originally formed in 2011 by Justine Jones (vocals) and Sammy Urwin (guitar, vocals). They enlisted the rest of the lineup the following year, consisting of James Jackson (guitar), Jamie Venning (bass), and Robbie Back (drums). Quickly, they gained a reputation for their chaotic live shows and caught the attention of Holy Roar Records, who went on to release their debut album, Greyer Than You Remember in 2015. Wanting to explore a heavier sound, the band returned to the studio, emerging with their second album, The Warmth of a Dying Sun, in 2017. They doubled down on and elements for their third full-length, Eternal Forward Motion, with most of the tracks written in drop G tuning, encouraging Jones to adapt her vocal style into a lower register; they released their third album in 2019 through Spinefarm Records.
