Job For A Cowboy Release New Song, Announce New Album
Metalheads rejoice! Job For A Cowboy ended their nearly decade-long hiatus with a new single. The Agony Seeping Storm is the lead track from a new album that will be released in 2024. The yet-to-be-titled record will be their first since 2014’s Sun Eater.
Of course, the new song has an insane bass line rendered by Nick Schendzielos. His melodic sense adds motion to the heavy guitars, and he even digs into some slap for texture changes.
Schendzielos also applied his talents to making the incredible music video. Vocalist Jonny Davy gave a statement on the song and video.
“‘The Agony Seeping Storm’ gives a slice of our upcoming concept record,” he says. “Regarding the video, the band collaborated extensively with director K. Hunter Lumar (Digital Mile), while our bassist, Nick Schendzielos, co-directed. The concept was inspired by a close friend who embarked on a relentless quest for profound enlightenment through the incessant abuse of hallucinogenic drugs. However, as they delved deeper into their religious-like experimentation, they began exhibiting symptoms of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. They came to believe they could access an alternate, esoteric reality through hallucinogenic intoxication, where they encountered gnostic and biblical figures and imagery. These songs reflect their thoughts, ideas, and experiences.”
Job For A Cowboy will also make their official comeback show at this year’s Blue Ridge Rock Fest in Alton, Virginia, on September 8th. We’ll keep you updated with more details on the album as they become available.
