JOB FOR A COWBOY BIOGRAPHY
In a little over a year after their solidified line up, Job for a Cowboy has made their debut EP, Doom, released in December on King of the Monsters (The Locust, Creation Is Crucifixion). The band spent months in preparation in order to record the most powerful album they could. In songwriting, they consistently seek out opportunities to challenge themselves in mastering levels of technical achievements found in their wide range of influences.JOB FOR A COWBOY GENRES
The band's versatile fan base has allowed them to share the stage with everyone from As I Lay Dying and 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 non-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 Bolthrower.
