Description

    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 their 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.

    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's last album of all new music was 2009's "11:11". Since then they have collaborated on the soundtracks to both 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Shores' and 'Puss N' Boots' and visited Havana to record the 'Area 52' album with a Cuban orchestra. They have continued to tour the world, playing sell out shows last year at the Hollywood Bowl, Red Rocks, Colorado and the Sydney Opera House.
