Southern California fuzz-rock quartet FU MANCHU have posted a second song from their new album We Must Obey, "Knew It All Along," on their official MySpace page, [www.myspace.com/fumanchu](www.myspace.com/fumanchu). On Tuesday (Feb. 13), the complete We Must Obey album will be posted at the same location, where it will be available for streaming until the album's Feb. 20 release date.
Though it follows in the formidable footsteps of such fuzz-rock landmarks as In Search Of..., The Action Is Go and King Of The Road, We Must Obey is being hailed as FU MANCHU's finest offering to date. Guitar World praises its "uncompromisingly thunderous, combining Sabbath-like riffs and punk rock attitude," while Metal Edge says the album proves that "FU MANCHU is the essence of pure rock." Meanwhile, Alternative Press takes a minimalist approach in its 4.5-star review: "We Must Obey is the new FU MANCHU album. It has 11 songs. What more do you need to know?"
In other news, Century Media Records will issue a limited-edition clear vinyl version of We Must Obey on May 8. In conjunction with its release, Ampeg will give away a clear guitar - the Dan Armstrong Plexi model played by FU front man Scott Hill. One of the 2,000 copies of the We Must Obey clear vinyl will include a "golden ticket" with instructions on how to redeem the grand prize. More details on the clear vinyl (which can currently be preordered at CMDistro.com) / clear guitar contest are included in the new We Must Obey e-card now posted at [www.centurymedia.com/fumanchu](www.centurymedia.com/fumanchu).
FU MANCHU kicks off a six-week nationwide tour in San Francisco on Feb. 28. See the tour section for the complete itinerary.
