22nd October 2024
+ Very Special Guests

Tickets On Sale 29th March 10am!

Originally formed in 1985 as a Black Flag-influenced hardcore punk band
called Virulence, FU MANCHU has since become one of hard rock’s most
celebrated names. The band released its first single “Kept Between Trees” in
1990 and in the years following, helped give rise to an iconic style of heavy
music born out of the desert and tagged “stoner rock” alongside peers such as
Kyuss, Monster Magnet and Sleep.

Since the band’s inception, the quartet has built itself a fanatical army of loyal
enthusiasts all drawn to the group’s guitar-driven sound and carefree lyrics
centered on “classic muscle cars, choppers, vans, skateboarding and science
fiction.” Over their career, the band has released 13 albums and has
performed to sold out audiences all over the world.

2024 marks another first for the “fuzz rock” pioneers with the release of their
14th album, The Return Of Tomorrow, their first double album of new material.
Conceived of as a vinyl listening experience, the first LP features 7 songs in
their iconic heavy fuzz sound including the first single, “Hands Of The Zodiac”
and the relentlessly catchy “Loch Ness Wrecking Machine.” The second LP
sees the band mellowing out with 6 slower tempo jams including the synth
inflected “Solar Baptized” and the title track. Both LPs are 45RPM for the
thickest possible sound. Digital listeners need not worry, as the CD, download
and streaming versions of the album are mastered specifically for those

In the 6 years since their last album of new material, Scott Hill, Brad Davis,
Bob Balch and Scott Reeder released a live album, 6 reissues, 3 new EPs
and the soundtrack to Glen E. Friedman’s documentary, A Look Back –
Dogtown & Z-Boys, in addition to a rigorous touring schedule. The Kings of
The Road aren’t slowing down anytime soon.
