Rodrigo y Gabriela’s New Album, “9 Dead Alive,” Out Now!
RODRIGO Y GABRIELA’S 9 DEAD ALIVE OUT NOW
Rodrigo y Gabriela’s new record 9 Dead Alive is officially out now! NPR streamed the record in its entirety last week and said, “In their newest album, 9 Dead Alive, Rodrigo y Gabriela return to their roots, reminding listeners why they fell in love with the Mexican duo in the first place. The album finds them at the peak of their musical flexibility. This new album is extremely stripped down and minimalistic, a treat both for those who’ve been following the duo since the beginning, and also for those who recently discovered them: letting listeners eavesdrop on a private conversation spoken between two friends, in the universal language of the guitar.”
Rod y Gab are confirmed to perform on the Conan O’Brien show on May 8 and a summer tour has been announced in support of 9 Dead Alive including a just-announced Rough Trade NYC in-store performance today, Wednesday April 30. This special in store performance will be a philanthropic event for Rodrigo y Gabriela’s foundation, B Major, an organization that save dogs from kill shelters and finds loving homes for them.

This week also marks the vinyl release of Rodrigo y Gabriela’s self-titled debut and second album, 11:11. While the first album was issued on vinyl in a very limited edition in 2006 and has been out of print for many years, this is the first time that 11:11 has been available in the United States.
