Gloom is the third EP by American death metal band Job for a Cowboy. It became available digitally and physically via mail-order only on June 7, 2011.[5] The EP was limited to only 2,500 physical copies, and when asked why this was, vocalist Jonny Davy said "I feel like we're the type of band where so many people simply illegally download our records in the first place. So why not have the die hards have something to get excited about to get their hands on?"[6]

Due to former guitarist Bobby Thompson and former bassist Brent Riggs' departure, Nick Schendzielos of Cephalic Carnage was brought in to record bass and Tony Sannicandro was brought in as guitarist, replacing all of Thompson's previous recordings on the EP.[6]
