Ex-JOB FOR A COWBOY Drummer Jon "Charn" Rice Joins SCORPION CHILD

No longer accepting jobs for cowboys, he's now a child of the scorpion.

No longer accepting jobs for cowboys, he's now a child of the scorpion.

Jon "Charn" Rice left Job for a Cowboy in October of 2013 right before the band hit up the studio for their new album. While he was replaced temporarily in the studio by Intronaut drummer Danny Walker, it left fans wondering what Rice was going to go do? Someone of his caliber and talent can certainly find a gig nice and easy! So it is with great confusion and serious intrigue I tell you that Rice has joined classic heavy metal-sounding band Scorpion Child.

“Scorpion Child is excited to announce some recent line-up changes within the camp. As with any team or group, decisions must be made that are vital to the overall attitude, creativity, quality, and lifespan of a shared and common goal. Any decision we make is and always will be for the betterment and advancement of this band.

That being said, we have decided to move forward as a four piece – at least for now – as we say goodbye to our friends [rhythm guitarist] Tom Frank and [former drummer] Shawn Alvear. We wish them the very best in any and all of their future endeavors and it should be noted that their contributions were not without their merits.

We are pleased to announce that Jon ‘Charn’ Rice (ex-Job For A Cowboy, 1349) will be taking the position as our new drummer. He exemplifies ambition, hard work, and the general personality that gives this band the potential to function as a tighter unit. His handful of performances with Nonpoint and the Shiprocked cruise earlier this year only solidified our faith in his abilities and filled us with an overwhelming excitement for the coming possibilities.

Thank you to all of our fans for weathering the seas of change. We’ll see you all very soon. Bigger. Better. Faster. Stronger.”

Well alrighty then! Who the hell knows where the band are going to go with the new jams now that Rice is behind the kit! Here's the band playing with Charn at the recent Ship Wrecked cruise:
