Job For A Cowboy Launch 'Gloom' EP Pre Order
May 6, 2011
The new EP from Job for a Cowboy, the Gloom EP, will be available digitally and physically via mail-order only on June 7th. The EP features four new tracks and features the re-invigorated lineup of Jonny Davy, Jon "Charn" Rice, Al Glassman and new guitarist Tony Sannicandro. The line-up can be seen now as they tour with label mates Between The Buried And Me and The Ocean on the Peter Says Denim Tour.


Drummer Jon 'Charn' Rice adds; "We're all super stoked on this new ep we have coming out called 'Gloom' (fakeout!). We've had quite a few lineup changes over the past 6 months so we wanted to go into the studio to see how we all meshed musically. Initially we had the idea for the ep to be a bit slower but it turned out to be some of our fastest material to date. Check it out!"


The Gloom EP physical copies will be available exclusively through mail-order via Indiemerchstore.com and will also be available digitally through most on-line digital outlets.


The Gloom EP is available for order now: metalblade.com/jobforacowboy

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2003
HOME TOWN: Glendale, AZ
MEMBERS:
Bobby Thompson - Guitar
Al Glassman - Guitar
Brent Riggs - Bass/Backing Vocals
Jonny Davy - Vocals
Jon "The Charn" Rice - Drums

Award-winning, Glendale, AZ heavy music powerhouse JOB FOR A COWBOY blend stunning musicianship and cutting edge song craft to create the absolute embodiment of modern day extreme music. The band’s hotly-anticipated sophomore album Ruination will see a July, 2009 worldwide release date via Metal Blade Records.

In the two short years since the release of the band’s full length debut Genesis, JOB FOR A COWBOY (JFAC) has progressed from “the band with the different name” to one of the leading lights for heavy music in the 21st century. JFAC formed in 2003 when vocalist Jonny Davy (16 at the time) and guitarists Andrew Arcurio and Ravi Bhadriraju (each 15 at the time) joined forces. The band would soon be joined by bassist Brent Riggs and drummer Elliott Sellers and the quintet immediately began work on the material that would comprise their celebrated debut EP “DOOM”. In the months that followed, JFAC delivered “jaw-dropping” live performances that would soon earn it a legion of fans including Metal Blade Records owner and founder Brian Slagel. Slagel, the man known for releasing the first recordings by Metallica in 1982 and signing Slayer the very next year, welcomed JOB FOR A COWBOY to his label's roster in 2006.

JOB FOR A COWBOY would soon add guitarist Bobby Thompson to its ranks and In May, 2007 unveiled its debut album, Genesis. Referred to as "the most anticipated debut release from a metal band in years", Genesis landed at # 54 on Billboard's Top 200 chart in its first week of release; becoming at that time the highest charting metal debut to crack the Billboard register since Slipknot's 1999 self-titled album. JFAC would go on to earn a landslide of top media accolades including being named one of Alternative Press' "Bands You Need to Know", "Best Underground Band" at the Metal Hammer "Golden Gods Awards", one of Revolver's "Breakthrough Bands that will be Kicking Your Ass this Year" and one of Total Guitar's "Hottest Guitar Bands". Immediately upon the release of Genesis, JOB FOR A COWBOY toured the world to out-and-out acclaim, highlighted by main stage appearances at distinguished music jubilees such as the UK’s Download Festival and Germany’s Wacken Open Air. JFAC delivered scintillating live performances as handpicked support to metal titans Megadeth (on both its North American and UK "Gigantour" treks) and co-headlined the highly successful "Radio Rebellion" tour with Polish metal champions Behemoth.

JOB FOR A COWBOY’s highly anticipated sophomore album Ruination was recorded in April, 2009 at Audio Hammer Productions in Sanford, FL with Producer Jason Suecof. Ruination marks the JOB FOR A COWBOY recording debut of drumming prodigy Jon “The Charn” Rice, who has toured with the band since the release of Genesis and features ten tracks of state-of-the-art heavy metal music. Ruination sees JOB FOR A COWBOY advance by leaps and bounds; the record is a concentrated hotbed of astounding dexterity, scorching attack, sleek arrangement and thundering musical muscle. Infectious riffs, keen dynamics and the assertive vocals of rising star front man Jonny Davy combine to produce an album that is at once powerful, expressive, confident and commanding. The New York Times referred to JOB FOR A COWBOY’s sound as “brute-force”, a commendatory claim that Ruination unquestionably validates.

When asked for comment on Ruination, JOB FOR A COWBOY front man Jonny Davy states, “Job For A Cowboy has toured the world and faced a ton of challenges over the course of the last year and a half. All of the hard work that we’ve put in and everything that we’ve experienced is directly reflected in our new songs, which we know are our best yet. Stay tuned.”
