MUNICIPAL WASTE, the critically acclaimed crossover thrash act from Richmond, VA will be playing alongside such metal luminaries as LAMB OF GOD, AS I LAY DYING, CHILDREN OF BODOM and GOD FORBID on the No Fear Energy Music Tour. The tour will start on April 2nd in Phoenix, AZ and end on May 15th in Myrtle Beach, SC.
This hotly anticipated tour, sponsored by No Fear energy drink will see MUNICIPAL WASTE take their explosive blend of thrash all over the country and put them in front of some of their biggest North American audiences to date. The band, who has been cooped up in their rehearsal space for months, diligently writing and rehearsing material for their yet to be titled summer release on EARACHE RECORDS. The WASTE is eager to get back out on the road to deliver their hard-hitting flavor to every town along this tour.
"I'm excited about this tour;" says MUNICIPAL WASTE drummer, Dave Witte. "It contains a little of everything, home town buddies LAMB OF GOD, old friends GOD FORBID, friends to be made AS I LAY DYING & CHILDREN OF BODOM and of course, plenty of metal."
Witte's enthusiasm about the tour is hard to contain, especially when it comes to talking about the many faces of headbangers young and old that the band will come across during the length of this tour. For them, he leaves a special message:
"This is a perfect tour for every kind of metal head from the beginner to the seasoned veteran. Join us & come face the Waste!"
One of the advantages for MUNICIPAL WASTE being on this tour is the chance to really set themselves apart from the other bands on the lineup and turn heads as the lone thrash band on the bill.
"I think we definitely stand out on the bill, but that's a good thing;" says MUNICIPAL WASTE guitarist, Ryan Waste. "This is a chance for us to spread our style of hardcore thrash to a crowd that's probably never heard it - get ready for a full speed assault on the ears!"
Make sure to catch MUNICIPAL WASTE alongside LAMB OF GOD, AS I LAY DYING, CHILDREN OF BODOM and GOD FORBID on the No Fear Energy Music Tour!
