Yell! Magazine conducted an interview with vocalist Jonny Davy of Arizona extreme metallers JOB FOR A COWBOY at this year’s edition of the Heavy MTL festival, which was held last weekend (August 11-12) at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. You can now watch the chat below.
JOB FOR A COWBOY‘s new album, “Demonocracy”, sold 4,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 87 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The band’s sophomore full-length CD, “Ruination”, opened with around 10,600 units back in July 2009 to land at No. 42.
Released on April 10 via Metal Blade Records, “Demonocracy” was produced by Jason Seucof (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, TRIVIUM) who recorded the band’s blistering “Ruination” full-length, at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida, and features another strikingly detailed concept cover by artist Brent Elliott White.
JOB FOR A COWBOY‘s “Tarnished Gluttony” video can be seen below. The disturbing nine-and-a-half-minute clip was directed by Michael Panduro, who has previously worked with SAINT VITUS and CEPHALIC CARNAGE.
Comments Davy: “‘Tarnished Gluttony’ originally runs off the idea of blind faith into our government and monetary system. The director ran with the idea and spliced it with a H.P. Lovecraftian twist. The video streams the fascination of religion and the actions people justify in the name of religion, and this video is a spin on the old biblical tale of Abraham and Isaac, however, set in the world of Lovecraftian mythology. The point is, acting blindly in faith to a Christian deity is just as absurd as worshiping squid like monsters from space who live under the sea.”
Adds Panduro: “As a commercial director, I’m a complete failure. The band asked for just one thing and I couldn’t deliver. Indeed, this video has no boobs.”
