Today, we've teamed up with enduringly popular, critically-acclaimed acoustic duo Rodrigo y Gabriela to premiere their new song, "Mettavolution." You can check it out below.

"Mettavolution" is the title track of the virtuosos' upcoming album, their first in five years. Containing six new thrash-inspired original compositions, in addition to a side-long cover of Pink Floyd’s prog-rock epic, “Echoes,” the album is set for an April 26 release via ATO Records. 

You can preorder it right here.

Written in the duo's 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 producer Dave Sardy (Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, A Perfect Circle, Band of Horses).

Rodrigo y Gabriela are also set to head out on a world tour this spring. You can check out their full itinerary below.
