16.01.2014 RODRIGO Y GABRIELA - new studio album, "9 Dead Alive"
Acoustic rock maestros Rodrigo y Gabriela are back with their new
album: 9 Dead Alive. The album was recorded and produced by Rod & Gab at
their studio in Ixtapa, Mexico. Mixing was handled by Andrew Scheps
(Black Sabbath, Adele, Metallica, Lana Del Rey) in Los Angeles.
'9 Dead Alive' sees Rodrigo y Gabriela playing face to face, guitar
versus guitar, bursting with melodic energy and rhythmic invention.
Recorded at their Pacific Coast hideaway in late summer, the album
captures the warmth and spontaneity of two great musicians riffing and
jamming together; perfectly distilled into 9 new songs teeming with
desire, elegance and gusto. Click HERE to watch the album trailer.
Each of the songs on the album is a personal celebration of individuals
who have passed on, but through their deeds and words still resonate in
the 21st century. Going as far back as Eleanor of Acquitaine (1122
1204) to Viktor Frankl (1905 1997), and including a tribute to one of
Rod & Gab's enduring touchstones animals and nature. This diverse and
fascinating list will strike a chord with anyone familiar with the duo's
passion for human rights, literature, history and philosophy.
Rodrigo y Gabriela return to the UK in May for two shows at the Royal Albert Hall, the first night of which sold out within just a few days.
