Metal Injection.net has posted a brand new video interview with BENEATH THE MASSACRE frontman Elliot Desgagnes, which is available here, along with a live clip. The interview was conducted at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival earlier this spring, which marked the band's first show in America.
Continuing to support the band's full-length debut, Mechanics of Dysfunction, BENEATH THE MASSACRE will hit the road as a support act for labelmates THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD's headlining tour along with As Blood Runs Black and Ion Dissonance. Afterwards, BENEATH THE MASSACRE will then head out alongside Behemoth, Job For A Cowboy and labelmates GOJIRA this fall, having already shared the stage on tours with Animosity and the Summer Slaughter tour in support of Mechanics of Dysfunction.
Here are the latest BENEATH THE MASSACRE tour dates: More...
The following press release has been issued:
Hurley and Converse unite to present the 2007 "Radio Rebellion" Tour, a massive, twenty eight city North American trek that will showcase the cream of the crop of heavy music's rising stars from points across the globe. Co-headlining the tour will be Glendale, AZ extreme Metal unit JOB FOR A COWBOY and Polish Death Metal troupe BEHEMOTH.
The follow up to 2006's successful package tour of the same name, this year's planned jaunt sees the "Radio Rebellion" Tour upping the ante, especially in regards to the "heaviness factor", as the tour will grandstand two of underground Metal's most talked about rising artists in BEHEMOTH and JOB FOR A COWBOY. Support on the extreme expedition will be provided by highly regarded French band GOJIRA and Canadian technical Death Metal quartet BENEATH THE MASSACRE.
JOB FOR A COWBOY, who has seen a meteoric ascent unparrelled in recent Metal history, will continue to tour in support of its debut full-length album "Genesis". "Genesis" debuted at #54 on Billboard's Top 200 chart this past May, shifting nearly 13,000 units in it's first week of release and joined the initial releases from STONE SOUR and DAMAGEPLAN (which featured members of SLIPKNOT and PANTERA respectively) amongst the highest charting Metal debuts to crack Billboard's Top 200 since SLIPKNOT's 1999 self-titled album. Additionally. the band has earned a landslide of recent accolades including being named "Best Underground Band" at the 2007 Metal Hammer "Golden Gods Awards", one of Total Guitar's "Hottest Guitar Bands Of 2007", one of Alternative Press' 2007 "Bands You Need To Know" and one of Revolver's "Breakthrough Bands that will be Kicking Your Ass this Year".
Ozzfest breakthrough artists BEHEMOTH are extremely proud to be a part of the "Radio Rebellion" tour, which is the perfect follow up to their highly successful summer run. The tour affords the band the opportunity to perform a longer set in more intimate settings, ultimately providing fans with "the definitive BEHEMOTH experience". This is also a chance for the band to perform an array of songs from their highly acclaimed new offering, "The Apostasy", which debuted at #149 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. While most bands struggle to evolve and stay vital within the extreme music genre, BEHEMOTH has managed to do so effortlessly. "The Apostasy" is destined to continue their legacy.
"We've toured U.S. ten times during last few years but we almost never had a chance to headline our own shows," BEHEMOTH main man Nergal states. "These last few years have been about working our asses off in order to establish our name and build a solid foundation, and now it will finally pay off. It's high time for us to come back to North America and show our fans what a BEHEMOTH set with full production can be. I love all the bands that are joining us as there is a lot of quality and variety on the bill. I'm thrilled to tour with GOJIRA and JOB FOR A COWBOY is phenomenal! Extremely talented band. I can't think of a better company for us. We're bringing all our lights, a full stage production, and will be delivering at least an hour long set. We'll be playing old stuff as well as songs from 'The Apostasy'. The 'Radio Rebellion' Tour is going to be massive! See you there my friends!"
On the topic of the tour, JOB FOR A COWBOY founding member Ravi Bhadriraju comments: "To be a part of a tour along side some of the best acts from around the world is awesome. BEHEMOTH, GOJIRA and BENEATH THE MASSACRE are all from different countries and are all amazing bands. This will be the heaviest tour of the fall! We're excited and ready to hit the road yet again. All of you JOB FOR A COWBOY fans can expect a show that will be worth your while. Look out!"
In addition to Hurley and Converse, "Radio Rebellion" 2007 tour sponsors include Revolver Magazine, Smartpunk, Metal Blade Records, Ferret Music and Prosthetic Records.
"Radio Rebellion" Co-Founder Stewart Teggart comments, "We are very excited to launch this year's 'Rebellion Tour'. It will be 'Radio Rebellion' in the truest sense as we've assembled four of the most extreme bands in Heavy Metal. Each band on the tour this year hail from a different country and all of them have their own unique way of delivering brutally heavy music. If you are a fan of Metal, this tour is not to be missed! Radio Rebellion will be the microphone for the youth by delivering what the fans want to see and hear which is why sponsors with a similar frame of mind have been chosen to help support the tour."

Self proclaimed "death rap" artist Necro has issued the follwing statement from his official Myspace:
"I decided to leave the tour collectively with my manager and booking agent (both tour organizers) because we felt the tour’s demographic was not receiving hip hop well. I was facing hostile, disrespectful crowds and was returning the same energy back ten-fold by being more aggressive than them.
It was making a lot of people in the tour crew nervous and there was concern someone might get hurt (NOT ME). It was also being suggested that maybe I tone down my live show and not antagonize the already antagonistic crowd. I couldn’t roll with that as it’s not my style. I was holding back enough as it is but there is a line. All the bands on the tour loved us and everyone behind the scenes knew we displayed major heart and never once got phased by the hostility. We finished every show with middle fingers up and a big "Fuck You" to the crowd.
I will make one thing clear for the haters: we NEVER got booed OFF the stage. Not once. Yes a ton of emo kids booed us at every show, but we had a twenty-five minute set every night and we stayed on stage for every minute of it, and we represented. Every show had at least 100 to 200 Necro fans in the pit tearing it up, and our meet and greets were incredible!
It’s just a shame these little kids are so close-minded. The majority of the hate was coming from mop top emo sixteen-year olds who have no clue who the originators of metal are, and didn’t respect my rest in peace chant to metal legends (Dime, Cliff, Chuck, Piggy, SOB).
As far as the tour organizers and I are concerned, you are my people so it’s all love and I’m thankful for the opportunity to prove I can murder it in the worst of situations. This actually did a lot for me and is just one move in many my team will make to blow Necro up"
Chart Attack spoke with Job For A Cowboy about the band's history and their new album on Metal Blade Records. Here's an excerpt:
"While just barely in high school, JFAC released an EP titled Doom that lead singer Jonny Davy says was written when the band hadn't really found themselves."
"Our EP, Doom, we all wrote when we were really young, we were all just about 16, maybe 17. We just kind of threw songs together. We were really undeveloped as a band. So we had a couple of years to develop and tour and we learned so much and we grew up. The new album is a lot more focused and a lot more aggressive and heavily influenced on modern death metal, while the older EP has a lot of metalcore and hardcore aspects to it, and the new album definitely doesn't."
Genesis, the group's Metal Blade debut, clearly shows the growth and maturity since Doom. Although it's hardly a breakthrough death metal album, fans of the sub-genre who love their shit technical and brutal as hell will appreciate the progress the young lads from Arizona have made. But what stands out on the record more than the music is Davy's intricate songwriting and lyrics.
Even though Genesis isn't being promoted as a concept album, the songs clearly tell a story of technology, religion and corrupt government, and how they combine to lead to the end of civilization.
"I spent a really long time on the lyrics," says Davy, who's the band's sole songwriter. "At a pretty young age I realized that I was an atheist. Over time, I read up on a lot of religions and religious conspiracies and conspiracies in general.
"The record is actually about a biochip called the 'VeriChip' that's being implanted [into people] and used for medical identification and money currency purposes. People feel it's an invasion of privacy, and the other aspect is religious leaders have come out against it for fear that this is going to be a fulfillment of a prophecy in the Book Of Revelations.
"The VeriChip is actually being used today, and eventually they want to use it to implant in people's arms or hands. So let's say you walk to a grocery store and, instead of paying with money, you walk through a scanner and take the money out of your account. On the religious side, you can turn on American Christian television and they'll be talking about it on their little talk shows. Religious leaders fear that the Antichrist is going to use the chip to control every man and woman in America and later the whole world."

Glendale, AZ extreme metal unit JOB FOR A COWBOY has announced a San Antonio record release show to celebrate the arrival of its eagerly anticipated debut album, "GENESIS". The event is scheduled for the evening of May 15, 2007 at local hard rock venue The White Rabbit.
Sponsored by San Antonio area HOT TOPIC locations, the record release show will spotlight one of heavy music's fastest rising young bands in JOB FOR A COWBOY. The band has come to regard San Antonio as a "home away from home" recently, as support for JFAC in the city has been second to none over the course of past tour visits. San Antonio metal fans flooded the White Rabbit on the band's last visit to town, easily selling out the 1000 seat venue.
Additionally, the band has announced that an exclusive month-long pre-order package has been made available at all area HOT TOPIC locations to fans that secure their copy of "GENESIS" prior to its May 15 street date. The JOB FOR A COWBOY pre-order "bundle" includes the band's full-length debut CD and a JFAC T-shirt -- exclusive to this promotion -- for only twenty dollars. Adding to the special package, the first 500 JOB FOR A COWBOY fans to pre-order the "GENESIS" bundle will receive a free ticket to the record release show.

The brand new JFAC song "Embedded", as well as a sneak peak at the GENESIS cover artwork can be found on the band's MySpace page.

Vocalist Brian Fair had this to say about the tour:
“It is going to be another summer of insanity for the boys in Shadows Fall, and we couldn't be more stoked. Not only are we looking forward to partying with our friends in Darkest Hour, Every Time I Die, Chimiara and Gwar, but also to check out some killer music at one of the summer’s most diverse festival tours. We are planning on playing a set that will include songs from the early days of Shadows Fall up to our new album THREADS OF LIFE and leaving a wake of devastation behind. So bust out the sun screen, put the beers on ice and get ready to rock ‘cuz the SHADS are coming back to town.”
Once again, here are the latest Sounds of the Underground 2007 tour dates: More...
Fast-rising extreme metal unit JOB FOR A COWBOY has announced both North American and United Kingdom festival dates in support of their eagerly anticipated debut album, "GENESIS". The band, known for their punishing songs, explosive live performances and forward thinking vision, will release "GENESIS" on May 15 via Metal Blade Records.
JOB FOR A COWBOY will perform amongst the featured artists at England's massive Download Festival, set to take place June 8, 9 and 10. JFAC have been added to the three day festival amongst a hot list of artists that includes Lamb of God, Marilyn Manson, Motley Crue, Shadows Fall, Turbonegro, Velvet Revolver and Wolfmother. The Download Festival is a three day music fest held annually at the spiritual home of rock music in England: Donington Park (which hosted the Monsters of Rock Festivals between 1980 and 1996, and 2002's Ozzfest).
Furthermore, JOB FOR A COWBOY will perform live as part of the 2007 "Sounds of the Underground" tour, set to launch Friday, July 6 in Dallas, TX. The band joins the third installment of the cutting edge annual trek alongside Every Time I Die, Amon Amarth, Darkest Hour, Goatwhore, The Number Twelve Looks Like You and more.
JOB FOR A COWBOY, who toured the world in 2006 in support of their wildly-popular, self-financed "DOOM" EP, recorded "GENESIS" at Blue Light Audio Media in Phoenix, AZ with producer Cory Spotts. The album was mixed by the Grammy winning Andy Sneap (OPETH, ENTOMBED, MEGADETH). Anticipation for "GENESIS" is such that the band has already been named one of "Metal's Most Important Troops for 2007" by Metal Hammer, one of Total Guitar's "Hottest Guitar Bands of 2007", one of Alternative Press' 2007 "Bands You Need to Know" and one of Revolver's "Breakthrough Bands that will be Kicking Your Ass this Year".
On the topic of the new album, JOB FOR A COWBOY guitarist Ravi Bhadriraju comments, "Genesis is a record that we as a band needed to fulfill. We wrote an album that we wanted to play live well into the distant future. If there is one word to describe our new record, it is "aggressive". We want this album to have a certain effect on the listener. I am happy with what we have achieved, and I hope our fans appreciate it too."
Vocalist Jonny Davy states, "We wrote the material that became the "Doom" EP at a very young age and the sound of this upcoming record is a much different one than anything we've done before. We're anxious for its release and we hope everyone who hears it will enjoy."
The final track listing for GENESIS is as follows:
1. Bearing The Serpent's Lamb
2. Reduced to Mere Filth
3. Altered From Catechization
6. Strings of Hypocrisy
7. Martyrdom Unsealed
9. The Divine Falsehood
10. Coalescing Prophecy
CHIMAIRA frontman Mark Hunter announced from the stage at the band's concert in Chicago Sunday night (April 8) that they will take part in the third annual Sounds of the Underground tour, set to take place this summer. As previously reported, GWAR has been confirmed as the headliner of this year's event, according to a posting on the group's web site. Other acts that are rumored to be playing the festival include SHADOWS FALL, JOB FOR A COWBOY and EVERY TIME I DIE. An official announcement regarding this summer's lineup is expected soon.
The second annual Sounds of the Underground tour featured performances by AS I LAY DYING, IN FLAMES, TRIVIUM, CANNIBAL CORPSE, GWAR, TERROR, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, BEHEMOTH, THE CHARIOT and THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD, among others.
The Sounds of the Underground organizers took a different approach to last summer's festival by keeping the number of bands on the bill down and extending the length of set times. In 2005 most bands got no more than 30 minutes to play.
UNEARTH were the main attraction at last week's Adult Swim's Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theatres launch party in Austin TX.
UNEARTH have recorded the song "THE CHOSEN" for the forthcoming Aqua Teen Hunger Force feature film, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters ( in theaters on 4/13/2007) and the accompanying soundtrack Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters Colon The Soundtrack (in stores on 4/10/2007).
Straight after their stint in Austin, TX, the band headed to Europe to join forces with DAATH, DESPISED ICON, and Metal Blade Record's newest member to the family, JOB FOR A COWBOY on a tour that will lead into late April.
"We are all eager as fuck to headline the UK and Europe for the first time. We have done some amazing European tours before, but it will feel damn good to play a full set and put on our show for our friends overseas" says vocalist, Trevor Phipps "We are hitting up some smaller venues, most without barricades, so we can bring a real Unearth show to the people. We hand picked Job For a Cowboy, Despised Icon and Daath to make sure the entire bill was one that will keep the crowds looking over their shoulders at all times!"
UNEARTH will then make their way back to the US for the highly anticipated tour with DIMMU BORGIR, DEVILDRIVER and KATAKLYSM.
"After the headlining run we come right back home for a North American tour with Dimmu Borgir, Devildriver and Kataklysm. We haven't hit the road with Dimmu since the 2004 Ozzfest, so it will be good to get out there and do it again in a club setting. Devil Driver is always a great band to share the stage with and Kataklysm is one of the best death metal bands around today" enthuses Phipps "This tour is going to be an un-fucking-real diverse clash of heavy music... good times ahead!"
