New Fu Manchu from the studio…

A quick hello from the studio, while in the middle of tracking drums for a new 7 inch release coming later in the summer of 2016. We are just coming off an amazing gig in Chicago opening for one of the last living masters of blues, Buddy Guy. The show was a private affair at The House of Blues(where else?) in downtown and it was like getting a music education. In other words, we got schooled. So never was there a better time than now to go into the studio. We’ve been getting together working on new material for a new record for most of the year now and its been going well. However it always seems to go a little slower than you anticipated and we wanted to have something out this year, so it seemed like a good idea to take a song from these sessions called “Future Transmitter” and pair it with a cover of classic Foghat tune “Slow Ride” for a summer release. A glimpse of what is to come and a glimpse of the past that inspires us….kind of like the gig we just did. Soon we will be taking off for France for HellFest 2016 ( Sabbath!! Slayer!!) then another “secret” gig in July, shows in LA and Psyche Fest in Las Vegas (Alice Cooper!!Sleep!! Blue Oyster Cult!!)in August, and Riot Fest back in Chicago in September with a special After Show Party gig as well…THEN….something else in October..Any idea why it takes a while to get a record done?? ALL THESE DISTRACTIONS!!! (who’s complaining?) Anyway…this is how the summer of 2016 will be spent. Writing, recording, gigging, teaching. And so it goes…
