“The video was shot by DOSE PRODUCTIONS who did a few Pitchshifter videos. I have worked with them before and they were our first choice,” says Davies. “The video was shot in France in a bunker complex. The concept was just meant to be quite dark and grainy like the song and the guy in the video is basically slowly flipping out after taking a pill of some kind, it’s very claustrophobic. I wanted something quite moody to suit the song, although the end isn’t as uplifting as the end of the song as he blows his head off. Oops!”

“‘Worst Case Scenario’ was one of the first tunes I wrote for this band, it’s the most live sounding too,” continues Davies about the album’s lead single. “We used almost all live drums for this and it’s very bass heavy, not an amazing amount of guitar; in fact it’s quite sparse. Lyrically its very tongue in cheek; it’s about going through life and becoming very cynical about everything where you used to always expect the best outcome. This song is about always expecting the worst, which is almost a way of protecting ourselves from being constantly let down. I think anyone in a band knows what I mean. You have to put your faith in people that very often let you down completely and the music business is a very unfair place. I had quite a dark period musically several years ago when all I did was plan for the worst outcome so I wasn’t surprised when it came. But, I have to say the song isn’t meant to be all doom and gloom; the third verse is meant to be uplifting and to have you stop dwelling on the past and get on with it, it’s all good from now on. I’m not a miserable git, I promise!”

Victory Pill is the brainchild of JIM DAVIES of The Prodigy. His guitars shaped the group’s breakthrough album, Fat Of The Land, which included “Firestarter” and “Breathe”. Jim toured worldwide with the band including a headline slot at Reading 2001. Davies was also a contributing member of electro-metal outfit Pitchshifter who toured alongside Incubus and on Ozzfest. Davies contributed to the groundbreaking album, www.pitchshifter.com, as well as co-wrote the subsequent Deviant and PSI records. Davies last gig for Pitchshifter was immortalized in the Bootlegged, Distorted live album.

With that pedigree, it is no surprise then that the result is a mammoth debut album of inventive and infectious sounds, like the explosive songs, “Downfall” and “Another Clone,” as well as the critically acclaimed first single “Worst Case Scenario.”

Victory Pill will release their self-titled debut in North America on October 23rd, 2007 on Corporate Punishment Records. Fans can preview material from their forthcoming debut at
