, Staff

Acoustic rock duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela have unveiled plans for a fall tour that will bring them to Boston’s Orpheum Theater on Friday, October 23. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to $35, are now on sale though Live Nation.

The Mexico City native/ Dublin, Ireland based duo of Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero are gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated third studio album, 11:11. The new album is scheduled to hit stores on September 7. The duo returned to Mexico to record the new album at a studio they built in Ixtapa on the Pacific Coast. 11:11 is said to be a better representation of Rodrigo Y Gabriela’s acclaimed live show as the majority of the album was successfully recorded through live takes. 11:11 also includes guest appearances by Alex Skolnick of metal outfit Testament and classical-guitar duo Strunz & Farah.

Fans can get a taste of 11:11 with the lead track “Human”, which is now streaming on Rodrigo Y Gabriela’s MySpace.
