Photojournalist Stephanie Roose of the Hidden Agenda conducted an interview with guitarist Al Glassman of Arizona extreme metallers JOB FOR A COWBOY at the Clarkston, Michigan stop of this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival on August 2, 2009. The nine-minute chat can be viewed below."Ruination", the sophomore album from JOB FOR A COWBOY, sold around 10,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 42 on The Billboard 200 chart. The 10-song follow-up to 2007's "Genesis" was tracked and mixed at AudioHammer studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, DEVILDRIVER, TRIVIUM). "Ruination" marks the JOB FOR A COWBOY recording debut of Rice, who has toured with the band since the release of "Genesis" and features ten tracks of state-of-the-art heavy metal music. According to a press release, "Ruination" "sees JOB FOR A COWBOY advance by leaps and bounds; the record is a concentrated hotbed of astounding dexterity, scorching attack, sleek arrangement and thundering musical muscle. Infectious riffs, keen dynamics and the assertive vocals of rising star frontman Jonny Davy combine to produce an album that is at once powerful, expressive, confident and commanding." "Unfurling a Darkened Gospel", the new video from JOB FOR A COWBOY, was shot on location in downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and at the city's distinguished music venue, The First Unitarian Church. The clip was lensed by Doug Spangenberg for Space Monkey Studios (LAMB OF GOD, MAROON 5) and features JOB FOR A COWBOY doing what the band does best; bringing its electrifying live show directly to a crowd of rabid music fans. JOB FOR A COWBOY is currently on the road as one of the featured acts of the 2009 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival alongside SLAYER, MARILYN MANSON and more. The 27-date North American trek launched on July 10 in Sacramento, California.
