Rodrigo y Gabriela will release new studio album ‘11:11’ on Rubyworks on Monday, September 7th and to mark the release we've got hold of a fantastic new video of the pair – featuring an interview, as well as a montage of exclusive, behind-the-scenes and live footage.
‘11:11’ was recorded in Ixtapa, Mexico. The album has been produced by Rodrigo y Gabriela, with John Leckie co-producing one 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 ‘gracias’ 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.
‘11:11’ is the long-awaited follow-up to 2006’s ‘Rodrigo y Gabriela’, which has so far enjoyed worldwide sales in excess of half a million albums.
