Arizona metal outfit Job For A Cowboy have unleashed their new video single, “The Forever Rot,” which you can stream below. The new tune appears on the band’s upcoming, long-awaited new full-length opus, ‘Moon Healer,’ due for release on February 23rd, 2024 through Metal Blade Records (pre-order).
Here’s more info from a presser, “Moon Healer is a vivid illustration of what happens when creativity, aggression, and volatility tangle for the first time in years. Like the band’s critically adored, 2014-released Sun Eater full-length, Moon Healer is musically multifaceted, unabashedly brutal, and compellingly conceptual. Featuring a newly refreshed and reinspired lineup of frontman and co-founder Jonny Davy, guitarists Tony Sannicandro and Al Glassman, bassist Nick Schendzielos, and drummer (since 2020) Navene Koperweis, the band seamlessly picks up the mantle where Sun Eater left off.”
Schendzielos comments on the new video single, “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. 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!”
A few months ago, Job For a Cowboy released their first single since 2012 in the form of “The Agony Seeping Storm.” Check out that clip below.
