CYPRESS HILL: PLEASE RE-RELEASE ME

The American rappers announce a short UK tour, and will re-release most of their back catalogue to coincide with the dates...

Cypress Hill are to play at least two more UK live shows in June, and will re-release much of their back catalogue, including a previously unavailable Spanish language album, next month.

The band are confirmed to play at the London Brixton Academy on June 21, followed by a show at the Glasgow Barrowlands the following night (22). A spokesperson for Cypress Hill told nme.com that other dates in the UK would almost certainly be added, and a new, as yet undecided single would be released around the same time.

In addition, the band plan to re-release large amounts of their back catalogue in May.

On May 8, Cypress Hill will re-release all the original singles from their first four albums on both CD and 12″, as well as releasing their Spanish language album ‘Los Grandes Exitos en Espanol’, which has until now been unavailable in the UK. The album is a collection of re-recordings of Cypress Hill tracks as well as one new song.

Two weeks later, on May 22, they release a box set of their first four studio albums. All will be released through Columbia Records.

Cypress Hill‘s fifth studio album, ‘Skull & Bones’, is released through Ruffhouse/Columbia on April 24. The album is the follow-up to the million selling ‘Cypress Hill IV’, and features Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares and bassist Christian Olde Wolbers, as well as Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk.
