Amigo the Devil announces 2020 UK tour

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. Danny Kiranos, better known as his musical alter ego, has spent the last few years challenging the expectations of traditional folk,  country music purists and rock/extreme metal fans alike with his morbid, yet oddly romantic take on the Americana tradition and has cultivated a dedicated fanbase Stateside.

Despite being armed with only his voice and a banjo/acoustic guitar, an ATD live show is worlds away from what most might expect of a folk show. Loaded with sing-alongs and a sizeable dose of humour 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.

Having released his acclaimed debut album, ‘Everything Is Fine’, in early 2019, ATD has been touring  North America relentlessly  ever since. He will finally make his long-awaited debut in the UK, RoI and mainland Europe in late January for a tour that takes in 30 towns and cities, stating: “we can’t wait to meet all of you on our FIRST UK/European Tour! Activate party mode and bring us delicious food please.”  He is so demanding. Also should you be giving the devil delicious food? Here are those dates, along with a promo video for the tour.
