April 30, 2010
Glendale, AZ heavy metal powerhouse Job For A Cowboy (JFAC) premiered its brand new music video - for the track "Ruination" - earlier this week via its label's new multimedia web hub Metal Blade TV. The engaging clip presents a visual interpretation of JFAC vocalist Jonny Davy's end-time lyrics via vintage atomic bomb testing and Cold War propaganda films. Check out the action now at this location.

The electrifying group's 27 city headlining run sees the band perform live in Allentown, PA this evening and is slated to run through late May.

JFAC continues to tour in support of its celebrated sophomore album, 'Ruination'. The tour's official admat is available for viewing here.

In additional Job For A Cowboy news, the band has announced its summer, 2010 European touring schedule. JFAC will grace the main stages of such revered festivals as the UK's "Download", Italy's "Gods of Metal", Belgium's "Grasspop", Germany's "With Full Force" and "Wacken Open Air" and more. Job For A Cowboy has also announced a July South American headlining tour that will launch on July 17 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

In the time since the release of the band's full length debut, Job For A Cowboy has progressed from 'the band with the different name' to one of the leading lights for heavy music in the 21st century. The quintet's latest release, 'Ruination' skyrocketed to #42 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart in its first week of release and has met to scads of critical acclaim for its astounding dexterity, scorching attack, sleek arrangement and thundering musical muscle.

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1996
HOME TOWN: San Diego, CA
MEMBERS:
Travis Ryan - Vocals
Josh Elmore - Guitar
Troy Oftedal - Bass
David McGraw- Drums

Well over a decade since its inception, CATTLE DECAPITATION has forged its not-so-humble beginnings in veggie gore-grind into one of extreme metal's most relentless forces, encompassing a sound as schizophrenic as their record collections but with a determined lyrical stance resolutely damning the ills of humanity.

With 5 full-lengths and countless tours under their belt as well as having influenced the majority of today’s rapidly-growing-in-popularity death/grind hopefuls, CATTLE DECAPITATION continue their own brand of spastic gore-drenched grinding death with their 4th Metal Blade release, “The Harvest Floor” for release on January 20th, 2009. This marks the first release featuring the latest addition to the fold, drummer David McGraw. Fusing 2006’s “Karma.Bloody.Karma” writing style with a much anticipated update in technicality, production and brutality, “The Harvest Floor” will undoubtedly be a milestone in the ever-diversifying metal scene that is now dominating the globe. The enhanced portion of the CD version sports an I-pod ready documentary titled “Pandemic: The Damnation Epic – The Making of “The Harvest Floor” and the layout reveals the true carnage that the cover art by Wes Benscoter, in it’s over the top yet highly conceptual glory, only hints at. “The Harvest Floor” is simply put, an apocalyptic multimedia epic!

No strangers to guest appearances, CATTLE DECAPITATION have enlisted some old friends for guest vocals including Ross Sewage (Impaled/Ludicra) and Dino Sommese (Dystopia/Asunder). The band is also very pleased to announce there is a special appearance by Jarboe (Swans), lending her beautifully haunting voice to the epic death dirge “The Harvest Floor”. Jackie Perez Gratz (Grayceon/Amber Asylum) graces a couple tracks with her electric cello and Los Angeles noisician John Wiese also lends his electronic/atmospheric expertise to the album further separating the band from the typical “cookie-cutter” approach applied all too often by today’s extreme acts.

The Harvest Floor shows a return to the engineering and production skills of Billy Anderson (Mr. Bungle, Melvins, Swans) with a combination of drum recording by Zach Ohren (All Shall Perish, Decrepit Birth) to create a modern but unique sound that is disturbingly pummeling. Holed up in Sharkbite studios in Oakland, CA for nearly a month away from the punishing light of day, CATTLE DECAPITATION hid in the depths and have sprouted new hell with the masterpiece that is… The Harvest Floor.
