JOB FOR A COWBOY has completed work on its hotly-anticipated sophomore album, entitled Ruination. The record will see a July 7, 2009 North American release date via Metal Blade Records.
The cover artwork for Ruination has been unveiled and can be seen below. The striking, quasi-conceptual piece was designed by Brent Elliott White and takes its inspiration from Job For A Cowboy front man Jonny Davy’s album lyrics and concepts.
The band will shoot its first music video from Ruination – for the new song “Regurgitated Disinformation” — on Saturday, June 6 in Philadelphia, PA and is inviting fans to attend and be a part of the event. Presented by R5 Productions & 94 WYSP/Rockers, the JFAC shoot will take place in Philly’s First Unitarian Church beginning at 8:00 PM EDT. Downloadable vouchers for the video shoot / live performance will cost just .94 cents and are available at this location. In addition to the video shoot, the evening will include a full live set from both JFAC and a “special guest” opening act.
The event voucher will be exchanged for an “admission wristband” on the day of the show. Wristbands will be issued on a first come, first serve basis starting at 12 PM (noon) on June 6 at the main entrance of The First Unitarian Church and will only be available to those who purchased the voucher in advance. The wristband will guarantee admission to the show that evening as well as both a special meet and greet with JFAC and a limited edition poster that includes a promo code to download a special digital Metal Blade sampler featuring new music from Job for a Cowboy, Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth and more. Fans who arrive too late to receive wristbands will still be able to partake in the meet and greet and receive the poster with digital sampler promo code. Full details on the event can be found at this location.
The follow up to the quintet’s celebrated debut album Genesis, Ruination was recorded at Audio Hammer Productions in Sanford, FL with Producer Jason Suecof.
