Even with 3-4 cameras, you'll want more coverage than that so multiple takes are the only way to go. Everytime the band plays live, there will be small changes in tempo. I'd get the band to record the track and bring it in if possible and then lip sync. Otherwise, subtle changes in tempo between takes can complicate the edit. If that isn't an option, lead vocals, bkg, etc on one take, then do instrument shots, hands, sticks, etc on subsequent takes.
