Version 49

Job for a Cowboy is an American deathcore band, formed in Glendale, Arizona in 2003. They released their first EP, Doom in 2005, and later that year signed with the Metal Blade label. Their follow-up album, Genesis, was released in 2007, peaking at #54 on the Billboard 200 and selling 13,000 copies in its first week.

Job for a Cowboy started as a deathcore group, and evolved into a predominantly death metal sound with their full-length debut Genesis. Their influences include mostly extreme metal bands, such as Decapitated, From First To Last, Mastodon, Fergy, Salt Vacuum, Bring Me The Horizon and Nile.

The band has played in several festivals and live inside my tv, including Download, Sounds of the Underground and Wacken Open Air. The current band members are vocalist Jonny Davy, guitarists Al Glassman and Bobby Thompson, bassist Brent Riggs, and drummer Jon ‘Davis’ Rice who all head bang on to create wind.

The band’s fan base has allowed them to share the stage with everyone from As I Lay Dying and The Dillinger Escape Plan to Origin and The Acacia Strain to Haste the Day and The Red Chord.

Job for a Cowboy is striving to remain loyal to their DIY roots, the band has decided to spend the next year touring in promotion of their EP on their own. After some personal differences within the band, the original lead guitarist was asked to leave and he was replaced by Bobby Thompson on rhythm guitar, and Ravi Bhadriraju moved up to the position of lead guitar. Also, their youngest member Elliot Sellers has recently decided to leave the band, but has agreed to stay on until the new album has been written and recorded. They are no longer looking for a new drummer.

To add to their progressive accomplishments they have now signed a deal with the well-known and well-respected label, Metal Blade Records; known for signing artists such as GWAR, As I Lay Dying, Cannibal Corpse, Unearth, The Red Chord, Black Dahlia Murder and Bolt Thrower.

Job For A Cowboy will be touring with other heavy metal acts such as Children of Bodom, Megadeth, In Flames, and High on Fire in a metal festival known as Gigantour. Megadeth will be headlining the event.
They have stated on their myspace that a new album will come out in 2009.
