Job For A Cowboy Confirm Drummer For New Album

Job For A Cowboy have recruited Navene Koperweis (Entheos, ex-Animals As Leaders) to play drums on their new album. His parts were tracked back in August. The band are planning to return to the studio in October/November to continue recording the effort with producer Jason Suecof. Frontman Jonny Davy told MetalSucks the following about the record:

“We’re kind of looking at this as a sequel to ‘Sun Eater‘. The lyrical themes tie into the last record. I would say this record is very similar to ‘Sun Eater‘ but we’re still trying to move the needle a bit, trying new things, kind of like we always have. I think that’s always been our motto, not to be stagnant and to just have fun with it, to try new things. I think everyone’s musical tastes changed a little bit over the years and our music kind of changes with it.”

Job For A Cowboy Seemingly Teasing Their Return

Converge, Ex-Job For A Cowboy, Etc. Members Join Forces In Umbra Vitae

Jacob Bannon (Converge, Wear Your Wounds, etc.), Mike “Gunface” McKenzie (The Red Chord, Wear Your Wounds, etc.), Sean Martin (Twitching Tongues, ex-Hatebreed, etc.), Greg Weeks (The Red Chord, Labor Hex, etc.), and Jon Rice (Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats, ex-Job For A Cowboy, etc.) have launched a new band called Umbra Vitae. The group’s debut album “Shadow Of Life“ will be released on May 1 and the effort’s first single “Return To Zero“ can be streamed below:

Bannon had the following to say about the band, whose name was inspired by Georg Heym‘s 1913 poem of the same name:

“After reading the piece from Heym, I immediately felt connected to it. Later, while working on the previous Wear Your Wounds album, my love for Death Metal was rekindled. This was likely a reaction to working on non-aggressive music for such a concentrated period. As these songs started to form, the ominous nature of that original poem came to mind.

In many ways it embodied the character of what we were all creating together. For me, Umbra Vitae is darkly confrontational and my own internal struggles are nested within each song. At this point in my life it is of the utmost importance to use this art and music as the vehicle for a healthy purge of emotion. By design, even in something this intense, there is righteous intent to be a better human through the process of creating it.”

He also told Revolver the following about “Return To Zero“:

“‘Return To Zero‘ is about removing resistance in one’s life in order to be best version of ‘you’ that one can be. I feel that this is a relatable topic for many. What resistance is and how it manifests is unique to every single one of us. For me, this is a constant process and essential to being a better husband, father, friend, artist and human. Below you’ll find a section of the lyrics that state this better than I can in paragraph form. Thank you to everyone who continues to listen.”

“Bite down on the chain
Bow down to no one
Destroy the ego
Radiate love
Carve out a purpose
Where there was none
Wipe up the blood
Remove resistance
And exit the cage
Climb to your feet
Accept your rage
It’s time to reclaim
What’s rightfully yours
Bite down on the chain
And bow down to no one”

Job For A Cowboy Post Pictures Of Their Torched Van

Job For A Cowboy have posted some photos of their tour van up in flames. Some have speculated that these photos may be the band’s way of saying that they are disbanding or at least taking a break. This is not confirmed, but it would makes sense, especially since they never even toured in support of their latest album, Sun Eater. On top of that, Nick Schendzielos recently announce that he has joined Havok, and Metal Sucks have also got a comment from a Metal Blade representative who said the members are “deep in day job land,” and are not expected to make any announcements anytime soon. Stay tuned for more information.
