That’s right, folks. Fans of the legendary hip hop band have a reason to smile and get real excited. Cypress Hill is back with a new album and will be throwing down with Slightly Stoopid on a massive summer tour.
The new album, Rise Up, is the band’s first in six years, but you wouldn’t think it has been that long. Rise Up features the solid music and raps/freestyles that Cypress Hill fans have enjoyed since the early ’90s. Along with B-real and company, an all-star lineup is featured on the album, including Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda, System of a Down guitarist/vocalist Daron Malakian, Everlast, Young De, Evidence, The Alchemist and Cheech and Chong.
Cypress Hill celebrated the release of Rise Up in front of a packed house at The Warfield in San Francisco last night. The band will kick off their summer tour with Slightly Stoopid July 16 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in California and will travel the country supporting the new album. They will then head overseas and tour around Europe.
This will be an unforgettable summer tour for the musicians and music fans. If you are huge fan of Cypress Hill and Slightly Stoopid, or just appreciate good music, be sure to mark this show on your calendar.
