Cypress Hill have announced details of a new single to coincide with their performance at this year’s V2000 festival, nme.com can reveal.

The band release a double A-side single featuring one rap track, ‘High Life’ and one rock track, ‘You Can’t Get The Best Of Me’ from the band’s fifth studio album ‘Skull & Bones’ through Columbia/Ruffhouse in early August. ‘You Can’t Get The Best Of Me’ features drumming from Rage Against The Machine‘s Brad Wilk.

The band will record two separate videos – one for each track, before visiting the UK later in the month for shows at the London Brixton Academy (June 21), Glasgow Barrowlands (22) and Glastonbury Festival (23-25) and V2000 Festival (August 19-20).

A spokesperson for the band told nme.com that the video for ‘High Life’ would probably be a black and white “documentary style” film, shot in locations where the band have grown up and frequent.

Following the band’s UK live commitments, they head back to the US to play a Napster sponsored tour with Limp Bizkit. The tour is set to begin in Chicago on July 4.
