Employed To Serve have today released a deluxe version of their current studio album,Conquering.

This updated version includes 4 new tracks: a heady mix of the new, the Remix and the live, in addition to a fresh cover image.

The brand-new recording is ‘Take Back Control’, a typically full-on number produced & mixed by Lewis Johns who worked with the band on the Conquering album itself; the Remix, meanwhile, is an inventive re-working of Conquering track ‘Sun Up To Sun Down’ featuring New Zealand metal three-piece, Alien Weaponry; while the two live tracks were recorded last year on the Gojira tour of Europe.
