Preview of New Album Released!

Clocking in over time working on their sophomore album release titled, Unemployed, the band has been hard at work putting the final tweaks on this new concept album. From the depression of our economy, unemployment, corruption, environmental disasters, flu epidemics, the death of the America dream, and wanting to escape from all of it, The Employees take us on a wild Ride. Who else to know better about the economy than The Employees in it? Stay tuned for more updates and news!
