Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo "Rodrigo y Gabriela" recently released their new single “Gamma State."

“The first sketches of this song started a couple of years ago, when we started writing for the new album. We road-tested it on tour in Australia last year and it went down well with our fans there. However, as we zoomed in on recording Mettavolution with Dave Sardy in Los Angeles, it became apparent that it didn't quite sit with the rest of the songs on the record,” said Rodrigo Sanchez about their new project available exclusively on Amazon Music, “so we are very happy that 'Gamma State' is now finally coming out into the world.”

Over the last 20 years, "Rodrigo y Gabriela" have defined and redefined instrumental guitar rock, remaining one of the most internationally recognized and revolutionary acts performing in the genre. Five years since their last album, the group returned this year with their most ambitious album yet, Mettavolution. Recorded in Los Angeles with noted producer Dave Sardy — best-known for his work with Oasis, LCD Soundsystem and Fall Out Boy — the new album brought together the group’s passionate interest in Buddhism, the history of human evolution and the liberation of the potential we have as a species.
