Nergal Returns To The Stage!
May 8, 2011
Came across this via Metal Blade's twitter...

First live performance since undergoing bone marrow transplant

Nergal has posted the following update:

"I just came off stage…Katowice, Poland. It was my first performance after the transplant. I don't remember when the last time I was THAT nervous. First of all, I had to join one of my favorite bands ever, true legends, Fields Of The Nephilim…secondly, I'm still not 100% in shape so I didn't know how my body would react. I would risk saying I'm maybe 60% of what I used to be…but still progressing! Anyway, We did a song "Penetration" together with Carl McCoy and Co. What a blast I have to tell you. I had a serious adrenaline rush and it was such a boost of energy I can't even describe. My mouth dried out after 30 seconds so I could hardly breathe but the energy wouldn't let me stop. I was carried away. The moment I saw the crowd, I felt this double bass pounding underneath my feet…I was in trance. I'm counting days 'til we come back with Behemoth full time. 5 months to go…huh."

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 and will also be available digitally through most on-line digital outlets.

The Gloom EP is available for order now:
