Cypress Hill has released a batch of exclusive shots from the new Cypress Hill video “Rise Up.” The energetic title track produced by Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine fame, stands as a clarion call for people to rise up to meet challenges and fight for what they believe in. The song’s rock feel offers the perfect entree for the rest of the band’s album – Rise Up, which masterfully alternates between hardcore hip hop and driving rock tracks.
Rise Up, the band’s 8th studio album, will be available everywhere on 4/20/10. The west coast group will also be performing on the Jimmy Kimmel Live Outdoor Stage, with very special guest Tom Morello, on April 19 .
