Born Against, the brand-new album from eccentric singer/songwriter Amigo The Devil, has garnered high praise following its April 16th release. The eclectic collection features 10 vivid, cinematic vignettes that defy simple categorization. Whether his songs are cloaked in the macabre at one turn, exude his wry wit at the other or break your heart on the next, Amigo The Devil is a storyteller’s storyteller who songs reflect his unique observations and growing concerns about the human condition.
“…[Amigo The Devil] is not only navigating the light and darkness of life, but he’s striving to unearth the beautiful freedom that exists in the space between and offer it to those who have ears to hear.” – No Depression
Amigo The Devil has just announced a special global streaming event that will be streamed on June 4th via Danny Wimmer Presents. Danny Kiranos (aka Amigo The Devil) filmed an intimate performance with only an isolated mic and acoustic guitar inside of a cave eight stories below the surface. The venue, millions of years in the making, symbolizes the isolation we have all felt over the last year. The event will allow fans to hear his songs as bare as they were when originally written, with the benefit of the natural acoustics of the setting.

“…a sense of exploration and curiosity runs through Amigo the Devil’s singular music…’Born Against’ finds Kiranos pushing himself lyrically and vocally but quieting down his musical attack to let his stories land with full force.” – Rolling Stone Country
“Not unlike Tom Waits’ best work, ‘Born Against’ counters its darkness with ragtag theatrically and musical ambition.” – Magnet
“…beneath this veneer of mirth and melodrama, there’s an artist who gives full reign to intrigue and intellect in equal measure.” – American Songwriter
“This is an album where every song is a vivid scene that makes you feel something.
– Glide Magazine
“As much Tom Waits as Roy Orbison, both Amigo the Devil and Born Against expertly navigate the twisted path between a metaphorical heart on a sleeve and real live beating one bloodying up his flannel.” – ★★★★ Austin Chronicle (Cover Story)
