Press Release:

Fu Manchu tour New Zealand & Australia w/ Black Cobra (USA)!

With Fu Manchu’s Southern Californian roots spanning back to 1985, when they were a hardcore band called Virulence, through to countless line up changes over their 27 year period, it’s safe to say Fu Manchu predate and have out lived everyone of their fellow stoner rock allies.

Fu Manchu are widely regarded as one of the visionary forefathers of the stoner rock scene that we know today, they’ve become one of the most influential and highly respected bands to have come out of the 90’s Southern Californian desert rock scene, far out weighing that of their contemporaries Queens of the Stone Age.

Widely known, and hugely respected, for their Mammoth records era albums ‘In Search Of’, ‘The Action Is Go’, ‘King of the Road’, and ‘California Crossing’, Fu Manchu have recorded an astounding 10 studio albums, not to mention countless EP’s and live releases. With tours in 2011 honoring their 1996 classic ‘In Search Of’ and tours In 2012 honoring their 1997 classic ‘The Action is Go’, it’s safe to say Fu Manchu are in fine form and delivering just what the kids need, a heavy dose of high octane fuzz.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 10 years since Fu Manchu have ventured south of the equator, with that in mind, I’m here to announce that in late April till early May Orange Counties finest will touring New Zealand’s North Island and headlining shows all across Australia, they’ll also be playing a special headline performance at Melbourne’s annual Cherry Rock Festival (AC/DC Lane).

Special guests for both shows are San Francisco’s heavy metal duo Black Cobra (Southern Lord records) and Wellington's finest, Beastwars!

New Zealand Tour with special guests: BEASTWARS
