Dark Folk Artist AMIGO THE DEVIL Announces Winter Tour 2019

In Support of New Album, Everything Is Fine

 

A key figure in the U.S. ‘murder folk’ scene that also includes contemporaries such as The Devil Makes Three and The Dead South, the music of singer-songwriter AMIGO THE DEVIL is a unique blend of folk that also incorporates elements of Southern Gothic, Country and Bluegrass. Initially influenced by the likes of Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Godspeed! You Black Emperor, the artist born as Danny Kiranos has a recognized sound that carries traces of artists such as Americana string band Old Crow Medicine Show and singer-songwriters William Elliott Whitmore and David Eugene Edwards of 16 Horsepower, allied with direct, often morbid lyrics shot through with a dark sense of humor. He has also just announced his winter 2019 North American tour!

Following a number of well received single and EP releases, the debut album by AMIGO THE DEVIL, entitled Everything Is Fine, is out now and was produced by Ross Robinson, renowned for his work with major league hard rock/metal acts such as Korn, Slipknot, At The Drive In, and Glassjaw. But here, Robinson brings a warmth and presence to a musically varied set of songs that reveal more with each play. The album also features drummer Brad Wilk (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Prophets of Rage) sitting in on the entire recording session. The album was recorded at Valentine Studios, a time capsule untouched since the 70’s with all the original gear and atmosphere. Everything was recorded, mixed and mastered to tape to capture an absolute and pure brutal honesty.

This winter AMIGO THE DEVIL will embark on a national tour in support of his new record! Despite being armed with only his vocals and a banjo/acoustic guitar, the live show is worlds away from what people expect of a folk show. Continuing his fall tour with folksy horror band opener Harley Poe, AMIGO THE DEVIL says “We had such a great time with Harley Poe on the first round of dates that it only made sense to keep the party going for the cities we couldn’t get to. As Mr. Singletary once so elegantly asked, “Too much fun, whats that mean?””

Loaded with sing-alongs and an unsuspecting dose of humor to make otherwise grim topics accessible for fans of every genre, the songs remain deeply rooted in the tradition of story-telling that seems to be slipping away from the human condition. AMIGO THE DEVIL is a must see show this winter! Check out tour dates here or see below.
