FU MANCHU Announces EP Release Show

California rock quartet FU MANCHU will celebrate the Nov. 28 release of their new EP, "Hung Out To Dry", with a record release show at the Viper Room in Hollywood on Dec. 1. Although the "Hung Out" EP will be available for purchase at the show, a $6 pre-order for the 3,000-copy, limited-edition release is currently taking place at CMDistro.com.

"Hung Out To Dry" will be released in a unique dual format nicknamed "The Deuce", in which a 7" vinyl single and a four-track compact disc will be packaged together in a gatefold seven-inch sleeve. It will include two tracks from the band’s forthcoming tenth studio album and two others exclusive to the EP — an original song titled "Never Again", and a cover of VAN HALEN's "D.O.A."

Co-produced by the band members themselves, the "Hung Out" EP was recorded at Hollywood’s Grandmaster Recorders (TOOL, NINE INCH NAILS, BLACK CROWES), while finishing touches were added at Oasis Mastering by Gene Grimaldi (VELVET REVOLVER, PENNYWISE, REV. HORTON HEAT).

Two weeks before their Viper Room concert, FU MANCHU will debut new material from the "Hung Out" EP at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa, Calif. on Nov. 16. A flier is posted on the band's MySpace page, www.myspace.com/fumanchu.
