Job For A Cowboy is finally wrapping up the sessions for their long-awaited new album. Producer Jason Suecof posted a photo with Job For A Cowboy vocalist Jonny Davy, captioning it with "It’s been a long night…JFAC vocals done." Suecof has produced all of Job For A Cowboy's material since 2009 and even played a guest solo on the Sun Eater song "Sun Of Nihility."
The new album will be the band's first since Sun Eater in 2014 and will also be their first with drummer drummer Navene Koperweis (Entheos, ex-Animals As Leaders).
Davy explained the long gap between records in a 2020 interview with MetalSucks, pretty much saying that normal everyday life got in the way of the band.
"A couple of guys in the band went back to school and I went back to college to work on my computer programming degree," he said. Davy later added "I got married, I had a kid, so that puts a lot of things on hold quite a bit. That was probably the biggest brunt of it, on my end. I know a lot of the guys wanted to tour but around that time my wife got pregnant so that just kinda put everything on hold."
Davy mentioned that forming a new band Serpent Of Gnosis with fellow Job For A Cowboy guitarists Al Glassman and Tony Sannicandro inspired Job For A Cowboy to start thinking about new material. "We talked about [JFAC] here and there [before that] but I think once we got in the groove again [with Serpent], we got excited about doing another [JFAC] record," he said.
If you've never checked out Serpent Of Gnosis, do it. That band was short-lived but brutal.
