Arizona's JOB FOR A COWBOY has announced the addition of drummer Jon "The Charn" Rice to the group's ranks. "Jon has been playing drums for about seven years," according to a press release. "After completing a year at Capital's Conservatory of Music, majoring in Music Business with a focus on Percussion, Jon left to pursue a career in music."Commented JOB FOR A COWBOY guitarist Ravi Bhadriraju: "Jon's badass. His demo was awesome and we felt that after meeting and talking to other drummers that his personality fit best with ours. In addition to an awesome drummer, we needed someone who wants what we want and that is to tour as much as possible and he is down with that. We have no plans to stop and I'm glad we get to do that with the comfort of knowing we brought the right dude with us and that he feels the same." Stated Rice: "For me it's a dream come true. It's one of those things where you take a chance and send a demo over and then your life is changed. I'm really looking forward to living on the road. I've lived in Pittsburgh forever and starting in a few weeks I will be living the dream and seeing the world." JOB FOR A COWBOY recently completed work on its Metal Blade Records debut, due in the spring/summer of 2007. The band is now gearing up for a month-long trek with THE ACACIA STRAIN, SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY, DAATH and labelmates PSYOPUS. The tour starts January 12 in Menomonee Falls, WI.
