Job For A Cowboy is now streaming the music video for their comeback single "The Forever Rot". The video was produced by Job For A Cowboy bassist Nick Schendzielos and vocalist Jonny Davy, and is a psychedelic trip gone horrifically wrong.
"Jonny and I delved extensively over the past few years into the conceptual aspects of Moon Healer, and there was naturally a wide array of visual imagery invoked by the subject matter," said Schendzielos of the video. "We really wanted to bring the experiences of the character in Sun Eater/Moon Healer to life. The thematic elements represented are uniquely interesting to me so I was quite enthused to be able to take on the videos for 'The Agony Seeping Storm,' and now, 'The Forever Rot.'
"I've been pretty extensively diving into video production over the last few years with director Kyle Lamar from Digital Myle on other projects, so there's a synergy that's there with us already. His camera work is incredible and he's got such a great grasp on every element of the process. Jonny, Kyle, and I really gelled together, and I think it shows in the final product.
"Extracting the raw, authentic elements of the song's narrative, melody, and emotion, and translating them into a visual composition has been vastly artistically fulfilling and I look forward to creating more…from brainstorming, to filming, all the way through editing, it's such a fun process to see our ideas come to fruition. It's quite the ride…we hope you enjoy the trip!"
Moon Healer was recorded with producer Jason Suecof (Death Angel, The Black Dahlia Murder, Deicide) at his Audiohammer Studios. "We've gone through this same ritual with Jason for a multitude of reasons. But the most obvious one is that he's a masterful songwriter, guitar player, and even vocalist. He has an ear for ideas that very few seemingly have. He totally understands where we're coming from as a band," said Davy.
Moon Healer is also the first Job For A Cowboy album to feature session drummer Navene Koperweis, who Davy previously worked with in the progressive death metal side project Fleshwrought. Moon Healer is out February 23 and is available for pre-order here.
