Amigo The Devil has released a new track and a positively morbid video for “Quiet As A Rat”, coming off from his upcoming sophomore album Born Against. The new album is set for an April 16th release via Liars Club/Regime Music Group. The video features Amigo The Devil (aka Danny Kiranos) style gallows humor, which is actually depicted in this clip. The “Quiet as a Rat ” video was directed by Courtney and Ray Gauger and the artist is depicted as the narrator and victim of some tongue and cheek attempts at torture and execution that pose more on an annoyance to him than a threat. With a possible guest appearance by the Grim Reaper, you could say this is the most meta video for Danny’s career. Monday, March 1st will also be “Amigo The Devil Day” in Austin, Texas in tribute to the artist. Watch it now!
Pre-order Born Against:
As with many of Amigo The Devil’s songs, everything serves as a metaphor for something larger that resides within. The song “Quiet As A Rat is comprised of three vignettes that feature characters hiding their inner turmoil in order to maintain a strong façade. “Faith without doubt seems unhealthy,” says Kiranos. “It’s an extreme that leaves no room for growth and honest learning, only the mindless repetition of old and sometimes hateful traditions. ‘Quiet as a Rat’ explores the bridge between faith and doubt, nurture and abandon…the fine line between belief and control. It plays to the true value of our spirit and whether we have a purpose to find or if we are the purpose and are simply here to be used and forgotten. You know…real fun stuff.”
