VIDEO: AA Bondy's new vampire song

We've heard that Paramore's Hayley Williams and Twilight star Robert Pattinson are in the market for a duet. Shame someone didn't check out A.A. Bondy's Daytrotter session earlier this year and assign them to cover "Oh The Vampyre," an as-yet-unreleased track from the former Verbena singer's solo ouerve. With vampires now trumping zombies and werewolves, this is about as slick a commercial move as Bondy's capable of -- which isn't very -- so if Hayley and Robert take a pass, can our HBO peeps see about the closing credits of True Blood? As promised, we took the cams to Bondy's recent Great Scott set and came back with a new, full-band version of the "Vampyre" song, plus a version of "Black Rain, Black Rain" from his fantastic solo debut American Hearts. Stay tuned, we're still in the editing room on another track from this session: an updating of the ancient American spiritual "John the Revelator," which we suspect he learned from the immortal Son House.
