Fu Manchu will be playing some shows on the west coast this November. Tickets on sale this Friday. Hope to see you there.


California Crossing (1st Demo) by Fu Manchu on Apple Music


Listen to songs from the album California Crossing (1st Demo), including "Separate Kingdom", "Hang On", "Foot Down and Low", and many more. Buy the album for $8.91. Songs start at $0.99. Free with Apple Music subscription.

Fu Manchu "California Crossing" Deluxe edition 1st demo is now up on iTunes for download. This release does include 3 never before released songs and most of the other songs have different arrangements. We have been getting a lot of people asking about a CD release for this Deluxe edition and the answer is that we can't do a CD release because we don't own the record as our old record label does. They let us do the re-issue on LP only. All of our Mammoth record releases we have no control of how they are being made available for download. They are being cool with us to just let us re-issue them on vinyl.

All orders are in the process of being sent out this week.


Just in time for summer. The 2017 - 3LP / gatefold reissue of "California Crossing".
LP 1 includes the 1st demos that we did for the record with 3 unreleased songs. This was recorded and mixed by Jim Rota / Fireball Ministry.
LP 2 includes the 2nd demos that we did for the record and these versions are a lot more raw sounding than the final release.
Matt Hyde recorded and mixed these. This LP also includes "planet of the ape hangers" that was not on the final release.
LP 3 is the final recording and has been recently remastered for a heavier sound.

We have 325 of these to sell through our fu Manchu bigcartel store.

These are also available from Cargo distribution in the UK / Europe and through Cobraside in the USA.

The "demo" recordings will be available through iTunes and July 27th for download.

Shipping is more because of the 3LP set.


"California Crossing" deluxe reissue 3LP test pressing giveaway. Go to the Fu Manchu Facebook / Instagram pages and leave your name in the comment section. We will be picking a winner to win this. It will be a 3LP set in a gatefold jacket. The reissue will be released on July 21st 2017 through Cargo distribution in Europe and through Cobraside distribution in the USA. It will be released on our own At The Dojo records. This is not the final artwork. This is done just for this test pressing.

LP 1 has the first set of demos that we recorded. This also has 3 unreleased songs and the arrangements on the other songs are different. This was recorded and mixed by Jim Rota / fireball ministry.

LP 2 was the 2nd set of demos we did for the final release and these were recorded and mixed by Matt Hyde. These are rawer versions of the final songs.

LP3 is the final release but has been remastered to make it a little heavier.

We will have copies for sale at shows and through our online store, Bigcartel. Info soon.

When ordering directly from the band you will also get a Fu Manchu keychain / bottle opener.

scott / fu manchu



Southern California's heavy fuzz rock legends FU MANCHU will release their eleventh full-length album, "Signs of Infinite Power", on October 20, 2009 via Century Media Records.

Recorded at Maple Studios in Santa Ana, California by the band and producer Sergio Chavez (MOTÖRHEAD, HELMET) and mixed by Andrew Alekel (FOO FIGHTERS , DANZIG), "Signs of Infinite Power" could well be dubbed "a reawakening" of FU MANCHU as the record delivers monstrous doses of the group's punk energy, hard rock drive and psychedelic crunch in spades. From the instant the album's lead track "Bionic Astronautics" soars from the speakers, it is undeniably evident that FU MANCHU is as primed and hungry as ever before. The record holds the sound of a band rocking purely for the sheer joy of rocking; amps cranked to 11 and revved to maximum overdrive.

"Signs of Infinite Power" track listing:

01. Bionic Astronautics
02. Steel.Beast.Defeated
03. Against the Ground
04. Webfoot Witch Hat
05. El Busta
06. Signs of Infinite Power
07. Eyes x 10
08. Gargantuan March
09. Take It Away
10. One Step Too Far

"We're stoked to unleash 'Signs of Infinite Power' because we feel that it's the best record that we've ever made," states FU MANCHU vocalist/guitarist Scott Hill. "We're can't believe that we're going into our twentieth year as a band. The excitement and energy levels that we're feeling right now are as high as they've ever been."

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, FU MANCHU has a number of very special events planned for 2010. The band will unveil a host of plans that include rolling out both one-of-a-kind live events and extra special vinyl releases. Additionally, the VIRULENCE (pre-FU MANCHU) recordings will be remastered and packaged with the band's "1985-87 demos" and both live songs and video footage from 1987-89 under the title "If This Isn't A Dream…1985-1989". The package will be made available on both CD and LP and is slated for a winter 2009 release via Southern Lord Records.

FU MANCHU will tour the U.S. this fall in support of "Signs of Infinite Power".

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 a celebrated style of heavy music tagged "stoner rock" alongside peers such as KYUSS, MONSTER MAGNET and SLEEP. Since its inception, the quartet has built itself a fanatical army of loyal enthusiasts all drawn to the group's ridiculously catchy, unpretentious music, guitar-driven sound and carefree lyrics centered on "old muscle cars, choppers, vans, skateboarding and science fiction."


This just in: The new Fu Manchu record is called "Signs of Infinite Power".


Just sending an note out to let everyone know we're doing a charity ebay auction to help our friend Dylan Roche. He used to tour manage us back in the day and plays bass in Brant Bjork and the Bros. He recently underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor and we are trying to help out with his medical bills.

(he also was featured in the Fu Manchu "Asphalt Risin'" video.. playing the Searcher.

The auctions are for one of Scott Hills Armstrong plexi guitars and a Creepy Fingers Effects pedal. Here are the links to the auctions:



Spread the word! Thanks, Brad


2009 update from Scott!

"First off, we are playing a show at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa, Ca on Sat Feb 21.

We are writing the new record now. We have about 10 new songs. We hope to write another 5 or 6 before we hit the studio in april / may. The new record should be out sept / oct 2009 through century media records. So far its turing out very fuzzy and heavy!!! a few faster, tweaked songs will be in there as well. We will also be doing a few cover songs if we have the extra time in the studio. We will probablly release a 2 song 7" on our own at the dojo records sometime before or after the full length comes out. The 7" will be a limited pressing of 900 like the last one we released with the VOID cover song.

2010 will be Fu Manchu's 20th year of being a band. We have some very limited re-issues planned and selected shows where we will be playing certain records straight through. A dvd is also planned wih stuff from waaaaay back up until now. Live shows and videos. We are hoping to put all the videos that weve done on there as well. Some never before seen.

Sign up on the mailing list to get updates......
