In his interview with Heavy Consequence, AMIGO THE DEVIL comments about “Everyone Gets Left Behind”:
You ever wake up still drunk, spins worse than Wheel of Fortune and your blood feels like it’s boiling? Yeah, me neither… but how frustrating to know that a year ago, something like that would be so easy to power through? Although a hangover is where the idea of the song started, it’s not where it ended. The core of the song is easy, growing up was a mistake. I don’t mean a mistake as in something regrettable, but more as a consequence of time… something we didn’t mean to do. It’s so easy to look into the past and think how much better everything was, but how much of that is because we’ve already lived it and subconsciously know that it worked out? In the end, I wanted it to be a modern day “memento mori” type deal where everyone should remember their mortality, their youth, their whatever the middle part is. Tracking this song in itself was such a blast that I almost forgot what a grumpy bastard I can be sometimes.
Everything Is Fine was produced by Ross Robinson (Korn, Glassjaw, At The Drive In) and features drummer Brad Wilk (Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Prophets of Rage) sitting in on the entire recording session. The album was recorded at Valentine Studios, a time capsule untouched since the 70’s with all the original gear and atmosphere. Everything was recorded, mixed and mastered to tape to capture an absolute and pure brutal honesty.
AMIGO THE DEVIL will be embarking on a national tour in support of the new record. Despite being armed with only his vocals and a banjo/acoustic guitar, the live show is worlds away from what people expect of a folk show. Loaded with sing-alongs and an unsuspecting dose of humor to make otherwise grim topics accessible for fans of every genre, the songs remain deeply rooted in the tradition of story-telling that seems to be slipping away from the human condition. It is a must see show this Fall! Check out tour dates here or see below.
