Rodrigo y Gabriela new album & tour dates

Rodrigo y Gabriela will release their new studio album, entitled 11:11 on Rubyworks, on Monday 7th September. Recorded in Ixtapa, Mexico, the album has been produced by Rodrigo y Gabriela, with John Leckie co-producing two of the tracks. The album was mixed in Wales and London by Colin Richardson, best known for his work with Slipknot and Trivium.

Comprising 11 new self-written compositions, 11:11 is Rod & Gab’s personal thank you to a first XI of musicians, both past and present, who have inspired them along the way. Alex Skolnick of metal gods Testament guests on the album, as do widely respected acoustic veterans Strunz & Farah.
