Job For A Cowboy Biography

Glendale, AZ extreme metal unit JOB FOR A COWBOY blend stunning musicianship and cutting edge song craft to create the absolute embodiment of modern day extreme music. The fast-rising band, known for their intense songs, explosive live performances and forward thinking vision, will release their highly anticipated full-length debut, entitled 'GENESIS' on May 15 via Metal Blade Records.In December, 2005, JOB FOR A COWBOY released the 'DOOM' EP. The band spent months of preparation in order to record 'the most powerful set of songs they could'. Consisting of six tracks of the band's punishing hybrid of grindcore and death metal, the EP became a launching pad that would rocket the band to new heights of popularity within the underground music world. Stellar tracks such as 'Entombment of Machine', 'Knee Deep' and 'The Rising Tide' quickly became live favorites and the band stepped up the frequency of their gigs in order to satisfy what had grown into an enormous legion of devoted followers.JOB FOR A COWBOY would remain on the road during 2006 as part of the 'Steers & Beers' Tour (alongside CATTLE DECAPITATION, MISERY INDEX, etc.) and as one of the featured acts of the 2006 'Saints and Sinners Festival', where the band shared the stage with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and UNEARTH among others. With an amazing work ethic, this exceptionally motivated group of young men has managed to build a bigger buzz on their own than most bands that have had the long-term support of a label behind them.In June of 2006, JOB FOR A COWBOY signed to noted underground metal label Metal Blade Records and prepared to record their debut full length. Recorded at Blue Light Audio Media in Phoenix, AZ with producer Cory Spotts and mixed by the Grammy winning Andy Sneap (OPETH, ENTOMBED, MEGADETH), 'GENESIS' is set to turn the extreme music world on its collective ear. Anticipation for GENESIS is such that the band has already been named one of "Metal's Most Important Troops for 2007" by Metal Hammer, one of Total Guitar's "Hottest Guitar Bands of 2007", one of Alternative Press' 2007 "Bands You Need to Know" and one of Revolver's "Breakthrough Bands that will be Kicking Your Ass this Year".On the topic of the new album, JOB FOR A COWBOY guitarist Ravi Bhadriraju comments, "Genesis is a record that we as a band needed to fulfill. We wrote an album that we wanted to play live well into the distant future. If there is one word to describe our new record, it is "aggressive". We want this album to have a certain effect on the listener. I am happy with what we have achieved, and I hope our fans appreciate it too."Prior to the release of 'GENESIS', JOB FOR A COWBOY will head to Canada for a slew of Eastern Province dates. The band will follow with a trip to the UK and Europe as direct support to labelmates UNEARTH and U.S. tour dates with both DARKEST HOUR and CANNIBAL CORPSE.
