Municipal Waste to Headline Tour Across the U.K. and Ireland This Fall


I’m just going to come out and say it: Municipal Waste shows must not be missed. Truth be told, the sheer energy exerted as the band rips through their set and the fans lose their minds in the pit might be enough to power a city block for three months. And it will be that chaotic force of energy that crossover thrash fans across the pond will get when the boys from Richmond, Virginia set out on their headlining tour through U.K. and Ireland later this year.

Starting in Reading, U.K. on October 1 and coming to an end in Birmingham, U.K. on October 16, the tour will also feature killer sets from Gel and Undeath. Say what you will, but those three bands being on the same bill should create a volatile atmosphere primed to explode into spontaneous circle pits and walls of death.

Looking forward to the newly announced tour, Municipal Waste frontman Tony Foresta said he and his bandmates were excited to return to the region.

“Its been way too long since The Waste has done a proper UK headliner. To say we are excited is an understatement. We couldn’t even wait till after Download to tell everyone. We are equally as chuffed to bring a diverse and crushing duo of openers Gel and Undeath. If anyone knows how we can get a Buckfast sponsorship for this please reach out. CHEERS!”

And though their time in the U.K. and Ireland won’t be for a while still, that doesn’t mean they’ll be completely absent from European soil for too long. At this moment, Municipal Waste are getting ready for the summer festival circuit, with their first performance there set for this Saturday at Download.
