Boston Massachusetts metal band THE RED CHORD is gearing up for the release of their fourth full length album, entitled "Fed Through the Teeth Machine," due out on October 27th in the US through Metal Blade Records.
Guitarist Mike “Gunface” McKenzie comments on the band’s new album "Fed Through the Teeth Machine," "We spent the last year working hard on this one and we're excited for everyone to finally hear it. It's a lot faster and, in my opinion, more straight forward in a structural sense. We're really happy with the great work Jonny Fay and Zeuss did too. It's not a concept record, but there are some loose conceptual elements to it: hygienic obsession, delusional compound-dwellers and Maniac Mansion. Get ready to make fun of us on the internet!"

In a recent interview with UltimateGuitar.com, Job For A Cowboy front man Jonny Davy commented on albums leaking early and his own music downloading habits. An excerpt from the interview is below.
UG: Are you annoyed that 'Ruination' has been leaked through the internet?
Jonny Davy: Leaking happens, so 'Ruination' being leaked is no biggie. I'm an illegal downloader myself, so I can't blame anyone.
UG: Do you endorse illegal downloading then, since you're an illegal downloader?
Jonny Davy: I wouldn't say I endorse illegal downloading. I don't really think illegal downloading affects things too much, especially when you're an underground metal band. Downloading, and finding ways to get albums heard, is almost like the new era of tape trading. I can't complain - I definitely do it myself.

I feel confident that we have outdone what we achieved with our last album... words cannot express the excitement we all feel about the new material. Now this is fucking Death Metal!

Metal Blade Records has issued the following update about Job For A Cowboy streaming a new song online:
"Award-winning Glendale, AZ heavy music powerhouse, Job For A Cowboy, has completed work on its hotly-anticipated sophomore album, entitled Ruination. The record will see a July 7, 2009 North American release date via Metal Blade Records.
"The brand new JFAC song, Unfurling a Darkened Gospel, has been posted online today and is available to stream now at this location. The album's cover art and full color booklet have also been made available for viewing at the landing page. The striking, quasi-conceptual motif was designed by Brent Elliott White and takes its inspiration from Job For A Cowboy front man Jonny Davy's album lyrics and concepts. 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'."
