Fu Manchu Working On New Material

California rock band Fu Manchu is currently writing new material for an upcoming album and planning a 20th anniversary DVD. The band issued the following statement:

"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 turning 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 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."
