The first full length album by British miserable post-hardcore friends Employed To Serve on beautiful grey tapes, limited to 100 in total. Get the vinyl and CD via Holy Roar Records and complete your collection.
Following a string of highly succesfull EPs, these Go(d)(th)s are back in 2015 with their best effort to date. We’re not just saying this as a label- ‘Greyer Than You Remember’ is truly sick. With amazing artwork provided by Bill Trevey of Throats fame, this album will set the bar for every lover of Converge / Norma Jean / early Every Time I Die this year.
