You know Fu Manchu‘s 25th anniversary tour is gonna be hell on wheels, but that’s no big deal. Actually, wait, it is a big deal. It’s frickin’¬†awesome. The masters of fuzz will head out starting this June on a round of shows spanning months and countries, hitting the West Coast of the US before hightailing it to Europe in September and not looking back. This is the first leg of the tour, and they’ll be reissuing 1999’s hook-factory King of the Road on 2LP through their own At the Dojo Records imprint to mark the occasion, also playing the album front-to-back at a free show in Chicago as one of two sets.

Two sets! At a free show! That’s twice the Fu at no cost to you, the consumer. If this was an infomercial, you’d already be dialing.

The band posted the following on Thee Facebooks:
