FLIPSYDE: Combine the Urgency of Hip Hop With the Power of Rock and Infuse Them With Political Awareness and Social Activism

To Release Debut Album, 'We The People' on July 12th

Upcoming Bay Area Performances Include Live 105's BFD 2005, Slim's and Virgin Megastore

NEW YORK, June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Oakland's own, Flipsyde, will release their debut album, "We the People," on July 12th via Cherrytree/Interscope Records.

Where hip-hop has become a force for social change, Flipsyde, the politically conscious & musically unconventional, yet harmonious and innovative outfit consists of Piper's consummate MC skills and stinging rhymes culled from his experiences on the streets of Oakland, Steve Knight's emotive voice and adhesive melodies and Dave Lopez' inspired Latin-flavored flourishes of blazing guitar. The eclectic results seamlessly fuse with the turntable scratches of DJ Sharp.

On the completion of a well-received European run with Snoop Dogg/The Game, followed by the Black Eyed Peas tour and major European Festivals, Flipsyde's first single, the infectious, "Someday," has garnered phenomenal support from influential radio stations, stateside, such as San Francisco's' Live 105 and Wild 94.9. The commercial single is currently available, ranked as the #5 top selling single in San Francisco, with nearly 2500 downloads sold on ITUNES.

Their aptly titled album "We the People" represents, "We the People ... of the world; a new declaration of independence without political boundaries," as explained by razor-sharp MC, Piper. "Our music promotes unity, peace and the empowerment of people."

This summer, Flipsyde will embark on a European tour with The Game, followed by the European Anger Management Tour 3, alongside Eminem and 50 Cent, in September. Before then, be sure to catch Flipsyde on the following US dates:

Upcoming Shows:
June 10 Live 105's BFD @ Shoreline Amphitheatre
June 16 San Francisco -- Slim's
June 17 Virgin Megastore @ 12:30-1PM (Union Square, 2 Stockton
Street, SF, CA)
