Hard rock veterans Fu Manchu dropped their heavy new track “Clone Of The Universe” Friday (Jan. 12) exclusively on Billboard.

“‘Clone Of The Universe’ was the last song written for the new record,” says guitarist and vocalist Scott Hill. According to Hill, they already had enough songs for the new record, but "Clone Of The Universe" just sort of wrote itself.

“On one of the final days of practice, our drummer, Scott Reeder, was doing these fast drum beats and rolls and I thought it sounded great," he says. "Next practice, first thing we did was have Reeder do that exact drumming he did the practice before and I played the riff over it. We added it to the ending of the song and now the song was complete.”

The song is the first single off their new album, also titled Clone Of The Universe, out Feb. 9 on At The Dojo Records. Check out the riff-heavy song's lyric video and the album tracklist below.
