Death metal collective Job For A Cowboy today announces four special headlining dates in Japan. Following the band's trek on the Metal Alliance tour, which is currently underway, the band will play two shows in Tokyo as well as Nagoya and Okinawa beginning on May 18th. Confirmed dates are below:

5/18/2012 Shibuya Cyclone - Tokyo, Japan w/ United
5/19/2012 Sakae R.A.D - Nagoya, Japan w/ Infernal Revulsion, Death I Am, Hostile Eyes
5/20/2012 Shibuya Milkyway - Tokyo, Japan w/ Arise In Stability, Metal Safari
5/21/2012 Chatan Salt & Papper - Okinawa, Japan w/ Illuminati, Shores, Roach, Shakes Beard

Job For A Cowboy will be touring in support of the brand new studio recording, "Demonocracy," released in North America last week through Metal Blade Records.

In related news, the fourth in the “The Leads Are Weak” instructional video series by guitar wizard Tony Sannicandro is currently posted for your viewing pleasure. Subtitled “Getting Sexual,” Sannicandro elaborates: “One of the most important things to me in soloing is good phrasing. The first half of the ‘Misery Reformatory’ solo is a pretty cool example of good phrasing that fits the song. It would have been easy to go to the classic E-minor and start burning like the clap, but I figured it would be better to break it down a little simpler and make it sexy. This is easy to play but it’s a good lesson in outlining the solo like the curves of a beautiful broad.” See for yourself at this location.

Job For A Cowboy is nearing the end of the Metal Alliance Tour. Joined by The Faceless, Dying Fetus, 3 Inches Of Blood, Impending Doom, Wretched, and headliners, Devildriver, the remaining dates include:
