MUNICIPAL WASTE TO KICK OFF EUROPEAN TOUR TONIGHT

December 3rd, 2010

Richmond, Virginia’s MUNICIPAL WASTE have returned to Europe to kick off a headlining tour tonight tonight in Belfast, UK.

The UK has been hit with widespread snow this week, but despite having to sleep in the airport overnight, MUNICIPAL WASTE have not allowed the weather to stop them from bringing their famously energetic live show back to Europe and have safely arrived in Belfast for the start of the tour.

MUNICIPAL WASTE frontman TONY FORESTA recently commented:

“I’m really looking forward to getting back over there.  It feels like it’s been forever since we’ve been.  It seems like each time we come back the crowds get bigger and crazier.  It’s always good to come back year after year to see the same familiar faces as well as hordes of new ones getting rowdy to our music.  I can’t wait.  This time we’re taking Ramming Speed and Saviours.  Both bands we’ve known for a while and dig them as friends as well as musicians, so I’m assuming that every night will be entertaining onstage as well as everywhere else this rowdy crew goes.  It should be a fun one.”

03 Dec – Belfast, UK – Spring & Airbrake

MUNICIPAL WASTE FRONTMAN OFFERS BAND UPDATE

September 10th, 2010

Richmond, VA’s own MUNICIPAL WASTE will never tire of being out on the road. Between big festivals like Best Friends Day & Fun Fun Fun Fest, smaller club shows and the European tour they will embark upon in December,  the band find themselves as busy as they’ve ever been. Frontman, Tony Foresta has chimed in, letting fans know about all of the band’s latest exploits:

“Greetings from Richmond! A lot of people have been asking what’s been going on with the Waste lately and here is a quick update.

Our summer at home is starting to come to an end and for a great summer ender our Best Friends Day gig was outstanding and probably was my favorite shows of the year. It was so much fun playing such a rowdy and energetic show in our hometown with so many amazing people and bands. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported it.

We are really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things after having the majority of the summer off (which we haven’t had in years). You can see our video for “Acid Sentence” on youtube, myspace and the familiar places.  It was produced by the great people at Fangoria.  We have some really cool gigs coming up in the near future starting with us Headlining the Tankcrimes Brainsqueeze Fest in Oakland California on OCT 9th with our good friends Ghoul, Direct Control and Vitamin X and tons more. We haven’t been out west in a long time and we are not sure when we will make it back so DONT MISS IT! Then back on the East Coast on Halloween weekend we are heading down to The Fest in Gainesville Florida. Halloween gigs are really special for us because we always dress up for the occasion and our costumes are usually pretty offensive/ridiculous and this year should be no exception. You have been warned.

After The Fest the Waste will hook up for a weeks worth of shows with none other than High on Fire and Kylesa (Suicidal Tendencies will be on a few of these gigs as well!). Those shows will be leading to the mighty Fun Fun Fun fest in Austin Texas which features one of the most over the top lineups I’ve seen in a while (Mastadon, Gwar, Suicidal, Devo, Floor, Weird Al and a ton more!).  Then in December, we are headed back to Europe for a bunch of shows and see are amazing European fans!!!!

We are really looking forward to all these amazing gigs and have more good stuff in the works so just keep checking our myspace for updates. I swear one day we will actually have a website! (burp) Once again thanks for all the support over the years and see you in the mosh!”

Catch MUNICIPAL WASTE on the following dates:

Sept 29 – Great Scott – Boston, MA
Sept 30 – Club Soda – Montreal, Canada
Oct 1 – Noerthern Lights – Clifton Park, NY

MUNICIPAL WASTE AND FANGORIA ENTERTAINMENT TO PREMIERE NEW MUSIC VIDEO AT SAN DIEGO COMIC CON

July 21st, 2010

FANGORIA ENTERTAINMENT is very proud to announce that we will be premiering the new MUNICIPAL WASTE music video for the track “Acid Sentence” off of their newest album, MASSIVE AGGRESSIVE at booth #1736 at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con International. FANGORIA film crews helmed this gruesome video, which is sure to be a favorite with MUNICIPAL WASTE and FANGORIA fans alike.

“It seemed like a perfect fit,” says video director David McKendry. “The FANGORIA staff has always been huge WASTE fans, and when we heard they wanted to shoot a horror oriented video, we knew FANGO had to be part of the action.”

Bass player Phil Hall stated, “I have been a big fan of FANGORIA for years, so when I heard they were interested in producing a music video for MUNICIPAL WASTE, I was stoked. Just like any metal head, I am a fan of classic horror movies and who else would know that genre better than FANGORIA! I think the dark and gritty vibe of the new video fits the atmosphere of the song very well. I hope all the WASTE fans out there get a kick out of it!”

The song “Acid Sentence” is from the band’s most recent album, MASSIVE AGGRESSIVE, released by Earache Records. Based on the legendary serial killer John Haigh, the song/video center around a serial killer who bathes his victims in acid. The video was shot over several weeks in May and June of 2010 and features the band as well as plenty of FANGORIA style gore. The gore and body parts were provided by the world-renowned Dapper Cadaver, whose fine gore craftsmanship has graced TV shows like BONES and DEXTER.

Drummer Dave Witte on the collaboration- “It was a huge thrill to work with FANGORIA as they’ve been totally supportive to many artists over the years from Clive Barker to Romero and beyond, people who have uncompromising visions with their art and are pros all across the board. To me, as a fan and a musician, I couldn’t be more thrilled that FANGORIA wants to support what we are doing with our music.”

FANGORIA will debut the video at the FANGORIA Booth, #1736, at 3pm on Saturday, July 24th. After this, the video will play once every hour until the end of the event. Director David McKendry will be at the booth during the premiere to answer questions and discuss the video shoot. To arrange an interview with David McKendry, please email rebekah@fangoria.com

July 7th, 2010

Virginian crossover kings MUNICIPAL WASTE are gearing up for a European tour, which kicks off on July 24th in Brussels, Belgium, and will see the band play a mixture of festivals and club shows across Europe.

MUNICIPAL WASTE frontman TONY FORESTA comments:

“As of right now The Waste is cutting back on touring as much as we normally do for this summer, but when we were offered to play both Fluff Fest and Sonisphere we couldn’t pass on this opportunity.  Even though both festivals are completely different from each other, we feel The Waste fits perfectly with both and we can’t wait to trash these places!  There’s a lot of great cities we’re hitting up on this short run as well.  Can’t wait!

“I’m really pumped about Sonisphere because it’s going to be my first time seeing Iron Maiden!  I’ve been waiting for this moment since I was a kid.  From what I’m told, we get to play the party tent right after they play.  It’s going to be so much fun!”

Catch MUNICIPAL WASTE live in Europe at the following shows:

24.07.10 Brussels, Belgium – Magasin 4

South By Southwest (SXSW) 2008

April 8th, 2008

SXSW

By Robert Williams

South By Southwest (SXSW) is an annual music and film conference/festival held yearly in beautiful Austin, Texas. In the 21 years of its existence, SXSW has served as a launching pad for many unknown bands turned media darlings overnight. For one week in the month of March each year bands from all over the world gather in downtown Austin and showcase their music, their craft, for record executives, media big wigs, and most importantly in my opinion, music lovers!

This all sounds like a splendid and festive occasion with the exception of one detail. SXSW has almost exclusively all but overlooked metal and its many subgenres for its entire existence.

Now I won’t lie. In years past I have seen some cool showcases. Century Media and Relapse usually cart their bands into town, and scattered about my 12 year tenure in Austin I have seen some notable showcases featuring among others In Extremo, Sol Evil, Children Of Bodom, and Grey Skies Fallen. But when 1,400 bands come to town for one week in March each year, you would hope at least, I don’t know, 50-100 of them would be awesome heavy metal, right?

Well, this year Austin got a fair amount of killer metal. Kicking things off on Wednesday, the 12th I had the pleasure of witnessing my first Municipal Waste concert. A day later I got off of work early and headed downtown with some friends and caught a showcase featuring Enslaved, Mixhell, Napalm Death, High On Fire, and the mighty Motorhead.

Lastly, I witnessed the “It’s Grim Up North” showcase featuring Sabaton, 1349 and Enslaved. I partied like a true champion, saw some really, really good performances and got some really solid interviews. Read on metal faithful and I shall guide you through these conversations in steel conducted in my homeland of Austin….Let’s start at the beginning….
