The single is the third single released from his forthcoming album, Yours Until the War is Over, due February 23, 2024. “The Mechanic” reflects on a broken relationship, searching for a happiness that’s been lost to the painful realities of time together.

The song is in line with realizing your own flaws, but coming from the other side than previous single “Cannibal Within,” where you are the one causing a lot of the imbalance,” explains songwriter and vocalist Danny Kiranos.

Accompanying visuals for “The Mechanic” video reveal intimate insights behind the record’s genesis. Yours Until the War is Over is the first studio album by Amigo the Devil that was entirely produced, recorded and engineered in-house. Created in a basement bar-turned-studio in the middle of Tennessee, the video shows the bare-bones of his recording process – from scribbling lyrics on pages of a journal, to the natural dynamics with songwriting partner and guitarist David Talley, to experimenting with oddball percussion from his homemade recording den.

The collaborative nature of the recording process – another first for Kiranos – shines in the depth of the new music created on Yours Until the War Is Over. Songs thread together cerebral stories of trauma bonding and the method of using a relationship for survival, whether by addiction, doubt, death or narcissism.

Similar to his greatest influences, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen, Amigo the Devil embodies the truest form of an artist in this new work. From narrative journeys to internal conflict, Yours Until the War is Over is all heart, with no boundaries.
