After releasing their fourth studio album, Conquering, in 2021, British metal quintet Employed To Serve are set to release a digital deluxe version of the record March 10th via Spinefarm. Featuring four unheard tracks, like Take Back Control. But to tease fans a little more, they have dropped a new rendition of fan favourite Sun Up, Sun Down featuring New Zealand metal trio Alien Weaponry.
Frontwoman, Justine Jones, shares how ‘We always find it exciting to rework an already finalised song, and when the idea of doing it to a track from our latest album ‘Conquering’ came up, the obvious choice was ‘Sun Up to Sun Down’… We asked the guys in Alien Weaponry if they would be up for this collaboration whilst on tour with them last Summer. We thought their vocal stylings could really add something”.
With Alien Weaponryadding, “We’ve always wanted to be a part of a musical collaboration and we had such a blast with Employed to Serve on our last tour together that when they approached us to collab on “Sun Up to Sun Down” we were stoked to be a part of it! It couldn’t have been a more perfect song for us because it was our favourite song to hear them play every night on tour, that riff just stuck in our heads and we actively waited to hear it live while waiting around backstage.”
On top of this, both bands were handpicked by Gojira to support them on their UK/EU Tour this February.
