Cypress Hill to release new album in 2014
B-Real, Sen Dog and producer DJ Muggs back together for first time since 2004
The US hip-hop group last worked released an album in 2004 with 'Till Death Do Us Part'. However, it can be revealed that B-Real, Sen Dog and producer DJ Muggs are working on its follow up at the Soul Assassins Studio in Los Angeles, with a late spring release date expected.
The three original Cypress Hill members have all embarked on solo projects in the intermittent years, but the new album will mark their first album together in 10 years.
"We're in the beginning stages but moving along smoothly," DJ Muggs says in a statement. "The sound is anti-everything that's popular and is in a world of its own. The lyrics delivered with the vocal tenacity of a stoned gypsy roaming across the country through the mist. The date of the release is encrypted on the Cypress Hill website."
Meanwhile, B-Real adds: "It's great to have DJ Muggs back at the helm of the production. When Muggs, Sen and I work together there's a chemistry between us that brings forth powerful music. It's going to be ill, man. He's got fire and a lot of people have been waiting for us to reunite like that, so we're all looking forward to it."
In 2010, Cypress Hill released their eighth studio album 'Rise Up', the group's first album not produced by DJ Muggs. Guests on the album included Tom Morello, Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda and rapper Pitbull. Cypress Hill released their self-titled debut album in 1991.
