Cypress Hill has returned with their tenth studio album, Back In Black, produced entirely by Black Milk and due March 18, 2022 via MNRK. To ring in the announcement, the group has shared new single “Bye Bye,” featuring a standout verse from rapper Dizzy Wright — listen and pre-order Back In Black HERE. The new track comes on the heels of the announcement of the band’s extensive slate of touring for the year, including a leg of Slipknot’s Knotfest Roadshow 2022. Find all announced tour dates below. In yet another monumental move, the group has announced a brand-new documentary titled Insane In The Brain: Cypress Hill, which will be released this spring.
“In Cypress Hill tradition, we always try to make a dark song,” Cypress Hill’s B Real says about “Bye Bye.” “It’s what we’ve been known for, especially on our first three albums. This song is a statement. In a roundabout way, we spoke to the politics of today. Being lulled into this dreamworld by the government. Trying to blind us from the separation that they created, to put us to sleep while they do whatever they want.”
“Bye Bye” follows the 2021 release of album highlights “Open Ya Mind” and “Champion Sound.” Back in Black is Cypress Hill’s first full length since 2018’s Elephants on Acid, and comes at an already busy time for the band. Cypress Hill recently wrapped a co-headline tour with Atmosphere, and celebrated the 30th anniversary of their groundbreaking self-titled debut album with a sold-out show at LA’s Greek Theatre and an expanded anniversary edition reissue of their critically acclaimed debut. The band recently partnered with Z2 Comics for their very own original graphic novel, Cypress Hill: Tres Equis! which is out now. In addition to launching their own NFT collection at the end of 2021 — which sold out of “legendaries” and “rares” and will see a Back In Black collection dropping in March — the band also launched their own STANCE sock.
