Southern Californian hard-rock legends Fu Manchu have announced plans to release their 12th studio album, Clone of the Universe, on February 9th, 2018 via their own label At The Dojo Records. The upcoming record will be their first in 4 years, following the 2014 release of Gigantoid and includes a special guest performance by Alex Lifeson, guitarist and songwriter of the legendary band RUSH.

We are excited to get out and play this stuff, especially “Il Mostro Atomico,” says founding guitarist, Scott Hill. “We think it’s some the strongest music we’ve ever done. We really love the overall sound of the album and having Alex (Lifeson) play on it is just incredible. It gives it that special validation for the idea that we had to try something like a side long song.”

The album was recorded and produced by Fu Manchu and Jim Monroe at The Racket Room in Santa Ana, CA with additional recording by Andrew Giacumakis at Susstudio in Simi Valley CA and will be released worldwide for streaming and on vinyl and CD on the band’s own At The Dojo Records.
