"People have brought up many times that we are a band with a female vocalist, and that’s not a problem but we have been included in articles and other publishings just because of the gender of our singer and not because of the music we make. Though the intentions for this are usually good we find this is really a backward mentality in the quest for equality. We’re not interested in having a USP, we’re just a band of people making music. Good For Nothing is a about getting praise for something that is irrelevant and not because of hard work and ability." - 
Sammy Urwin, ETS guitarist, on new single 'Good For Nothing

A bit about ETS - EMPLOYED TO SERVE are born out of a time where it felt like their generation had given up on their hopes and aspirations. The music is abrasive and unforgiving but the band have a continuing positive theme present in the lyrics throughout their releases, trying to better yourself instead of getting stuck in the groundhog day of a miserable, mundane existence. The band is about striving to achieve with a belief that something good will come from our generation's lifetime.
