Fu Manchu Is Coming to the Arena on March 15th

Fu Manchu, the masters of stoner rock, return with a fuzzy new album.

One of stoner rock’s most celebrated names, Fu Manchu and their distortion-heavy, driven sound and carefree lyrics about muscle cars, skateboarding science fiction and women have made them heroes among fans of the genre. Formed in 1985 as a hardcore band in Southern California, the quartet has released twelve albums, starting with No One Rides for Free in 1994. They reached the height of their popularity around the millennium with albums like The Action is Go and King of the Road, when they were joined by Brant Bjork (Kyuss) on drums, who left in 2001 to pursue other projects.

Gaining accolades as electrifying live performers after opening for bands like Monster Magnet, Clutch, Kyuss and White Zombie, current members Scott Hill (guitar, vocals), Brad Davis (bass, vocals), Bob Balch (guitar, vocals) and Scott Reeder (drums, vocals) have just released their twelfth album Clone of the Universe, featuring seven new tracks and continuing their trademark style: spaced out riffs so crunchy they’ll make your teeth hurt.
