I’m No Angel is a new video from The Winery Dogs and can be seen below. The song is taken from the band’s self-titled debut album, which sold around 10,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released in North America on July 23, 2013 via Loud & Proud Records and in Japan on May 15, 2013 via Victor Entertainment, the CD was mixed by Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with Anthrax, Adrenaline Mob, Stone Sour and Steel Panther.
The Winery Dogs released two new special versions of its self-titled debut album on April 15. The Winery Dogs Special Edition consists of two-CDs. Disc 1 is the standard album and Disc 2 is entitled Unleashed In Japan 2013, featuring 10 songs recorded live in Japan during the band’s July 2013 tour, including Criminal, a track previously unavailable in the U.S., along with a 16-page booklet of live photos and lyrics. A deluxe package for die-hard fans was released simultaneously. Dog Treats: The Winery Dogs Deluxe Special Edition is sold in a box resembling a box of dog treats, and includes the Special Edition collection of music, a DVD featuring four music videos and interview footage, demos from the original recording sessions, a “studio diary” written by Mike Portnoy, as well as some unique merchandise unavailable elsewhere.
“Bands like Zeppelin and The Who, The Rolling Stones, and The Beatles, Cream, and Hendrix. I mean, I grew up with that stuff,” Mike Portnoy told Voice Of America. “And, although I’ve been able to pay tribute to it throughout my career with tribute bands and things like that, I’ve never been in an all-original band that was kind of playing classic rock power trio stuff. That’s how I describe this band: just a straight-up rock band.“
