FU MANCHU 'Clone Of The Universe'
Regular price €23,00
Southern Californian hard-rock legends FU MANCHU have announced plans to release their 12th studio album, 'Clone of the Universe', on February 9th, The upcoming record will be their first in 4 years, following the 2014 release of 'Gigantoid'. In addition to the album news, FU MANCHU has also announced a world tour in support of the record. 'Clone Of The Universe' marks a new chapter for the “fuzz rock” pioneers as they mix the straight ahead blistering rock with the unexpected time shifts, featuring tracks like the roaring cuts “Don’t Panic” and “(I’ve Been) Hexed” and the dynamically complex “Clone of the Universe” and “Slower Than Light.” The centerpiece of the album is “Il Mostro Atomico,” an 18 minute 8 second, side-long epic featuring a special guest performance by Alex Lifeson, guitarist and songwriter of the legendary band RUSH. Heavier than anything they’ve ever done and broken into 4 distinct sections, it's new ground for a band that’s been pushing the boundaries of “fuzz and wah” since its formation in 1990.
