The Devil's Bite: A new video from Victor Wainwright

Blind Pig Records has released a new video from Victor Wainwright entitled "The Devil's Bite."  The song is a "cautionary tale" with macabre and mysterious implications about the dangers that lie in wait for the unwary.

"Wainwright relates a frightening warning to beware of forces that can do you harm, utilizing a vocal style straight from the Tom Waits school of singing," said Chicago Blues Guide.

Wainwright, two time winner of the prestigious Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year award, says about the video: "Consumed by lust and betrayed by trust, the protagonist soon learns the hard way that he's responsible for his own fate."

The song is a track from Boom Town, the latest studio release from Victor Wainwright and the WildRoots.  In the video Victor is accompanied on acoustic guitar by JP Soars, fellow co-founder of the roots music superstar group Southern Hospitality.
