Kiranos played his first ever Amigo The Devil show with a full band on 5th February at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles. Live streamed globally, it is available to view until the early hours of 10th February (UK time). Tickets can be purchased at: amigothedevil.veeps.com

Renowned for his macabre storytelling, ATD/Kiranos’ 2021 album ‘Born Against’ saw him expand his repertoire with romantic, philosophical and emotional narratives without sacrificing the genre-bending style that had already earned him reams of praise and a passionate following. Harnessing the world music he grew up with, plus additional inspiration from master storytellers such as Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen and contemporaries like Fiona Apple and Father John Misty, his latest songs are vivid, cinematic tales of flawed protagonists on the edge, desperately clinging to some sense of stability while following their heart’s chosen path.

Assisted by producer Beau Bedford (The Texas Gentlemen), ‘Born Against’ is full of beautifully haunting melodies surrounded by avant-garde soundscapes, resulting in songs that have satisfied existing fans and new listeners alike. The album is the follow up to his 2018 debut, ‘Everything Is Fine’, which crossed boundaries by connecting with fans of rock, folk, Americana, country, metal and beyond. Containing the likes of ‘Hungover In Jonestown’, ‘If I’m Crazy’ and the classic ‘Cocaine And Abel’ (video youtu.be/ZzjtLm0G49E ), it showed Kiranos to be an unflinching raconteur and emotive singer whose material has resonated with a devoted and growing fanbase worldwide.

BORN AGAINST
LP / CD / digital
(Liars Club)

“His debut was a starkly beautiful tapestry on which genres were seemingly picked from a tombola and emotions torn from the depths. He remains angular and brilliant here, whether on the haunted-house funk of ‘Murder At The Bingo Hall’ or the jarring ‘Quiet As A Rat’
CLASSIC ROCK
“Darkly romantic, hauntingly melodic and flecked with effective experimental embellishments, it stakes an early birthright for the year’s best-of lists, reinforcing the adage that the devil truly does have all the best tunes”
FOLK RADIO UK
“A highly accomplished and skilfully arranged collection”
SHINDIG!
“Rarely does an album contain so much soul, emotion and mastery of the art of storytelling, conveyed through such warmth, passion and sincerity, but this one has it in spades”
LOUDER THAN WAR
“Innermost thoughts spill out of extremely powerful, compelling and challenging songs”
BLUE MATTERS
