Eclectic singer/songwriter Amigo The Devil has announced an extensive tour in support of his critically acclaimed sophomore album Born Against.
Released in April, Born Against firmly established Amigo The Devil (aka Danny Kiranos) as a masterful storyteller and fearless raconteur who can make you think, make you laugh, make you unsettled or make you cry, sometimes all in the same song. He is a diverse and cinematic songwriter with an emotive vocal range who challenges us to look at ourselves as human beings, the good, the bad and the unusual. Kiranos is a fiery and passionate performer who fully engages his audiences, and they fully engage him often making his shows a communal affair and an experience like no other. His fervent fanbase were thrilled with Born Against, and the press agreed with outlets already calling it one of the best records of 2021 and a sure thing for year end best of lists.
If you have ever heard a room full of people yelling “I hope your husband dies” in some harmoniously sloppy, drunken unison, then you will have stumbled into an Amigo The Devil show. Despite being armed with only his voice and a banjo/acoustic guitar, an Amigo The Devil live show is worlds away from what most might expect of a folk show. Loaded with sing-alongs and a sizable dose of humor to make otherwise grim topics accessible for fans of every genre, his songs remain deeply rooted in the tradition of storytelling that seems to be slipping away from the human condition.
