Arizona extreme metallers JOB FOR A COWBOY have announced their first performance since 2016 — an appearance at this year’s edition of the Blue Ridge Rock Festival, set to take place September 7-10 in Alton, Virginia.
The Blue Ridge organizers broke the news of JOB FOR A COWBOY‘s participation in the event in a social media post last week. They wrote: “Reuniting for their ONLY performance for the foreseeable future, Death Metal powerhouse JOB FOR A COWBOY returns to the stage for the first time in 7 years at Blue Ridge Rock Festival 2023! A name synonymous with heavy music, JOB FOR A COWBOY was a constant on Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, The Summer Slaughter Tour, Download Festival, Wacken Open Air, and more – becoming one of the largest torchbearers of Heavy Metal in the U.S. The band is rumored to be releasing their first album in 9 years in 2023. Experience this monumental, rare opportunity to see JFAC once more at Blue Ridge 2023!”
JOB FOR A COWBOY has reportedly been working on the follow-up to 2014’s “Sun Eater” for at least the last two years, with drummer Navene Koperweis (ENTHEOS, ex-ANIMALS AS LEADERS) having laid down his parts back in August 2020. “Sun Eater” was released via Metal Blade Records.
