Cypress Hill announce one-off London show for June - ticket details
The hip-hop mainstays will play London's HMV Forum on June 5
Cypress Hill have announced plans to play a one-off UK show this summer.
The gig will take place on June 5, with the Californian hip-hoppers playing London's HMV Forum. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (April 27) at 9am (BST).
Cypress Hill are gearing up for the release a new 'dubstep' five-track EP. The rap veterans, who released their eighth studio album 'Rise Up' in April 2010, have collaborated with dubstep DJ Rusko on the EP, which you can watch a trailer for by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
Speaking about the EP, which is called 'Cypress X Rusko', rapper B-Real said: "This is one of those styles that we felt doing with Rusko would be a great match. We’ve always been the type of group to take chances on doing something radically different than what people expect from us."
He continued: "So this carries with the tradition of us going out of the box. If it’s not something that we embrace then we don’t dare mess with it and this is something we fell right into the pocket of."
Rusko has previously produced remixes of tracks by the likes of The Prodigy, The Temper Trap and Little Boots. He released his second studio album 'Songs’, in March of this year.
