Glendale, AZ extreme metal powerhouse JOB FOR A COWBOY's Genesis album will receive a release on picture disc on April 18 (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy), April 21st (rest of Europe).

The release will be part of the Metal Blade Vinyl Fan Edition series, which means the edition is strictly limited to 500 copies only.

Job For A Cowboy recently announced both North American and United Kingdom tours alongside thrash metal legends MEGADETH in support of the Genesis album.

The band has been handpicked by Megadeth's Dave Mustaine to support his band as part of both the UK and North American Gigantour 2008 tours.

Job For A Cowboy is set to kick off 2008 in grand fashion as it brings its devastating live show to new and larger audiences alongside one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time in Megadeth. Job For A Cowboy will provide direct support to Megadeth on the UK Gigantour run, set to launch February 17th in Norwich, UK. The week long trek will conclude with a February 24th performance at London's Brixton Academy.

Job For A Cowboy will then join Megadeth, Swedish metal titans IN FLAMES, Finnish thrashers CHILDREN OF BODOM and Oakland, CA power trio HIGH ON FIRE as part of the North American Gigantour, set to launch April 12th in Denver, CO.

On the topic of touring as part of Gigantour, Job For A Cowboy guitarist Ravi Bhadriraju comments, “It is an honor to be selected as part of such a great tour. Bands like High on Fire, Children of Bodom, In Flames and Megadeth are all respected in their own genres and every band has something great to offer. Every band is going to put on a show. Every band will eat you alive. Get your popcorn ready!”

In addition to Bhadriraju, Job For A Cowboy features vocalist Jonny Davy, guitarist Bobby Thompson, bassist Brent Riggs and drummer Jon "The Charn" Rice.

Metal Blade must have a lot of money they don't want.

I can't fathom a single situation where it would make any sense to do this.

And as far as Dave Mustine touring with these jack-offs, I hope that while the Dave Mustaine Band is playing, he gets too close to a pyrotechnic and his face is blasted off.

This is the same Dave Mustaine that wouldn't allow Dissection to play Gigantour because they're Satanic yet JFAC aren't exactly the most Christian thing in the world singing about the anti-christ.

Apparently its okay if you're scene and popular.
