Employed To Serve Readying Deluxe Edition Of “Conquering”, Join Forces With Alien Weaponry For New Take Of “Sun Up To Sun Down”


Employed To Serve are preparing to release a digital deluxe edition of their latest album “Conquering” on March 10th through Spinefarm. This new version of the effort will sport several bonus tracks, including an all-new song titled “Take Back Control“. Also featured on the outing are two live tracks (“Mark Of The Grave” & “Force Fed“)—both of which were captured amid their European touring with Gojira last year.

Rounding out that collection is the below new version of the song “Sun Up To Sun Down“. That track has been remixed and now features contributions from Maori metal trio Alien Weaponry. Both Employed to Serve and Alien Weaponry will once again be out on tour together soon alongside Gojira on dates that can be found below.

Employed To Serve frontwoman Justine Jones commented of how this collaboration came to be:

“We always find it exciting to rework an already finalized 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.'”

The idea of re-working a track is to add a new dimension to it, and what better way than bringing in new musicians to alter the entire DNA of the song. 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 to ‘Sun Up…‘.

They seemed as enthusiastic about the idea as we were, so when we got back from tour, we sent them the track to add their parts and we were stoked on the outcome! It’s also rather poetic, due to the time difference when the sun is rising here in the UK, it’s setting in their home country of New Zealand.”
