Heavy music powerhouse JOB FOR A COWBOY (JFAC) has completed work on its hotly-anticipated sophomore album, entitled Ruination. The record will see a July, 2009 worldwide release date via Metal Blade Records.
JOB FOR A COWBOY will shoot its first music video from Ruination – for the new song "Regurgitated Disinformation" -- on Saturday, June 6 in Philadelphia, PA and is inviting fans to attend and be a part of the event. Presented by R5 Productions & 94 WYSP/Rockers, the JFAC shoot will take place in Philly's First Unitarian Church beginning at 8:00 PM EDT. Downloadable vouchers for the video shoot / live performance will cost just .94 cents and will go on sale tomorrow (May 9) at this location . In addition to the video shoot, the evening will include a full live set from both JOB FOR A COWBOY and a "special guest" opening act.
The event voucher will be exchanged for an "admission wristband"
on the day of the show. Wristbands will be issued on a first come, first serve basis starting at 12 PM (noon) on June 6 at the main entrance of The First Unitarian Church and will only be available to those who purchased the voucher in advance. The wristband will guarantee admission to the show that evening as well as both a special meet and greet with JFAC and a limited edition poster that includes a promo code to download a special digital Metal Blade sampler featuring new music from Job for a Cowboy, Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth and more.
Fans who arrive too late to receive wristbands will still be able to partake in the meet and greet and receive the poster with digital sampler promo code. Full details on the event can be found at this location.
The follow up to the band's celebrated debut album Genesis, Ruination was recorded at Audio Hammer Productions in Sanford, FL.
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.
On the topic of the new album, 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."
Upon the release of Ruination, JOB FOR A COWBOY will hit the road as one of the featured acts of the 2009 "ROCKSTAR Energy Mayhem Festival" alongside Slayer, Marilyn Manson and more. The 27-date North American march is slated to launch on July 10 in Sacramento, CA.
In addition to Davy and Rice, JOB FOR A COWBOY features guitarists Bobby Thompson and Al Glassman and bassist Brent Riggs.
