Employed To Serve have dropped a remix of their single Sun Up To Sun Down.

The collaboration with New Zealand trio Alien Weaponry will appear on the deluxe version of the Woking quintet's 2021 album 'Conquering', due out on March 10.

In addition to the original tracklist, the new edition will also contain another three new offerings, including a new recording called Take Back Control, produced by Lewis Jonns. It'll also feature two live tracks recorded during Employed To Serve's 2022 tour with Gojira. Vocalist Justine Jones commented how the new collaboration materialized:

"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.

"The idea of reworking 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."

Alien Weaponry added: "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. We think our musical styles have mixed well and the gang vocal element that we did has really added some power behind an already powerful riff. This was so much fun to be a part of and we can’t thank Employed to Serve enough for being an amazing band and amazing people!"

Employed To Serve will reunite with Gojira and Alien Weaponry for the Fortitude Tour later this month, kicking off in Dublin on February 11. They'll also appear at Bloodstock festival in August.
