Rod and Gab will take a break from writing new material for their next record and are heading out on tour this June and July , as they celebrate the tenth anniversary re-release of the Rodrigo y Gabriela album.
Originally released in Ireland in 2006, the album topped the charts ahead of Johnny Cash and the Arctic Monkeys, and a US release on ATO Records followed in 2007. “Rodrigo y Gabriela” was produced by Rodrigo and Gabriela with John Leckie, best known for his work with Radiohead and The Stone Roses. Affectionately known to fans as “the Crocodile album”, the record has gone on to sell 750,000 copies worldwide.
Speaking of the Rodrigo y Gabriela album Rodrigo said, “We are busy at work on our new record, but looking back at this album, it’s good to be reminded of how far we’ve come in ten years. We’re looking forward to playing those songs this summer”.
Rodrigo y Gabriela will play the following shows in Europe this summer.
