16 January 2014

Rodrigo y Gabriela return this April with their first new material in five years.
 

The project is called 9 Dead Alive and it was recorded and produced by the band in their Ixtapa, Mexico studio. It’s something of a concept album as each song “is a personal celebration of individuals who have passed on, but through their deeds and words still resonate in the 21st century.” Check out details on the track list and the 9 Dead Alive trailer.

"Fire Emblem Heroes desperately and shamelessly wants to monetize our love for these characters, yet it has no idea why we came to love them in the first place.
