Job for a Cowboy is an American death metal 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 official debut 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, Mastodon and Nile, as well as the rock groups Every Time I Die, Muse and the singer Björk.

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.

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.
