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.

The first single to be released from 9 Dead Alive is 'The Soundmaker', the album's jaw-dropping opening track, which with its extraordinary guitar play perfectly exemplifies everything that is wonderful and unique about Rodrigo y Gabriela's music.

They have continued to tour the world, playing sell out shows last year at the Hollywood Bowl and Red Rocks, Colorado. Rodrigo y Gabriela return to the UK in May for two sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall.

Tuesday 20 May – LONDON – Royal Albert Hall **(SOLD-OUT!)**
Wednesday 21 May – LONDON – Royal Albert Hall **(SOLD-OUT!)**
