(Richmond, Va) - A local Richmond rock band, 'The J.O.B.' has had their third song rise into Top 40 territory on radio spin charts in the USA (FMQB AC40 3/12/15). The song is titled RED EYE and is currently in rotation on 130+ radio stations nationwide. The number of FM stations adding RED EYE has steadily increased since the song first appeared on the national charts. A folk influenced, alternative rock song about second chances, RED EYE entered the Top 200 at #156 in November 2014. The single RED EYE was released with an accompanying music video.

Formed in 2008, The J.O.B. is currently recording their 5th studio album. Two singles from previous albums also achieved Top 40 status, "Messenger" for 5 weeks in 2012 and "Feel" for 26 weeks in 2012-2013.

"We're very excited to see people connecting with RED EYE," said Jim O'Ferrell, the band's co-founder and frontman. "If you have it cranked up in your car, it's one of those happy, high energy songs that will make you want to push the gas pedal down and feel the wind, " he said.

When asked about the song's inspiration, Jason Crawford (lead guitar) said, "We wanted to make a song that showcased our classic rock influences while still staying true to our contemporary sound... the other side of the coin."

The J.O.B. was formed originally as The Jim O'Ferrell Band by O'Ferrell and Crawford when O'Ferrell returned from the War in Iraq in 2008. Initially intended as a vehicle from which to record the powerful songs Jim had written between missions during the war, the band has evolved into a compelling alternative rock band with a prolific song portfolio. Their music has a genuine alternative rock sound with bluesy undertones and an Americana pulse to which everyone can connect and enjoy. Rounding out this four-piece group are Len DuPilka on the fretless electric bass and Eric Bandy on the drummer's throne.

At home in Virginia, The J.O.B. performs all over the region with plans for a national tour later this year. Their SHOW information is on the band's official website at http://www.thejoband.com. Their music is available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and other online music services.

Look for their new album, "Portraits" which will drop in Spring 2015. - MSJ
