Glendale, Arizona’s Job for a Cowboy has completed work on its hotly-anticipated sophomore album, entitled Ruination. The cover artwork for was designed by Brent Elliott White and takes its inspiration from Job for a Cowboy front man Jonny Davy’s album lyrics and concepts.
“The ideas involved with the new album branch off from our last record, Genesis, but are more politically based,” states Davy. Topics addressed by the album’s schema revolve around modern day worldwide dilemmas and controversial issues including “Propaganda in the main stream media and television, humanitarian rights of Northern Korea, the modern genocidal government of Nubia, the use of torture in American military tactics, overruling by world governments and Police states / Martial law”.
