West Coast hip-hop stalwarts Cypress Hill have announced their 10th album, Back in Black, which was produced by Black Milk and is due March 18th via MNRK (you can pre-order it here). The lead single is buzzing, bass-heavy "Bye Bye," featuring Dizzy Wright. Listen above.
"In Cypress Hill tradition, we always try to make a dark song," B-Real commented. "It's what we've been known for, especially on our first three albums. This song is a statement. In a roundabout way, we spoke to the politics of today. Being lulled into this dreamworld by the government. Trying to blind us from the separation that they created, to put us to sleep while they do whatever they want."
Cypress Hill also announced a new documentary, Insane in the Brain: Cypress Hill, due this spring. Stay tuned for more info on that.
Later this year, Cypress Hill will join Slipknot on the second leg of this year's Knotfest Roadshow, alongside rap-punk duo Ho99o9 (who just announced a new Travis Barker-produced album). All dates are listed below.
