The upcoming world tour celebrates Rodrigo y Gabriela's hugely anticipated fifth studio album, METTAVOLUTION, due to arrive via ATO Records on Friday, April 26; pre-orders are available now HERE, with the first 500 pre-orders receiving an exclusive autographed postcard from Rod and Gab themselves.
Their first album in five years, METTAVOLUTION marks the most ambitious music of Rodrigo y Gabriela's remarkable two-decade career. Three years in the making, the LP embraces the duo's passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species, all expressed through the medium of two acoustic guitars. Conceived and composed in their studio in Ixtapa on the Mexican Pacific Coast, the music of METTAVOLUTION was road-tested around the world on tour in 2017 and 2018 before being recorded late last year in Los Angeles with multiple GRAMMY-winning producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, A Perfect Circle and Band of Horses) behind the board.
METTAVOLUTION gathers six white-hot new Rodrigo y Gabriela compositions - much of which acknowledge the duo's thrash-metal roots back in Mexico City - as well as an inspired, side-long cover of Pink Floyd's "Echoes," audaciously reimagined for two acoustic guitars. "Echoes" - originally found on 1971's MEDDLE - is streaming now HERE.
