Five years since their last album, Rodrigo y Gabriela are ready to embark on the next chapter of their story, with the release of what they call the “most ambitious music” of their twenty year career together.
Entitled Mettavolution, the new album brings together a blend of metal, jazz, and Hispanic roots music in their own unique, unmistakable style.
Through relentless touring and word-of-mouth support, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as an in-demand live act, particularly in America, where they sold out the Hollywood Bowl (two nights) and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre as recently as summer 2018. They have also sold out multiple nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Le Zenith in Paris and Radio City Music Hall in New York, not to mention venues in Australia, Japan and Europe. They are recognized by their fans and critics alike as being one of the top live touring acts in the world.
In 2010, Rodrigo and Gabriela were invited by President Obama to perform at a reception he hosted for the President and First Lady of Mexico. They duo has also contributed to the musical soundtracks of Puss In Boots (2011) and Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (with Hans Zimmer) in the same year. With career album sales well in excess of 1.5 million worldwide, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as globally successful artists.
