MUNICIPAL WASTE’s Tony Foresta comments, “Ohhh, I’m exhausted. I’ve been on this street a thousand times. It’s never looked so strange. The faces…so cold. In the distance, a child is crying. Fatherless…a bastard child, perhaps. My back aches…my heart aches…but my feet (stops to look at feet)…my feet are resilient! Thank God I took off my heels, and put on my… HIMALAYAN WALKING SHOES! Also this tour is going to rule. Yes! “
MUNICIPAL WASTE are touring in support of their highly successful sixth studio album, Slime And Punishment. The album marked the band’s highest first week sales as well as debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top New Artist / Heatseekers chart, #5 on the Current Hard Music Albums chart, #9 on the Independent Albums chart, and came in at #44 on the Top Current Albums chart. The band also landed at #75 on Canada‘s Hard Music chart and #180 on the Top Current Albums chart.

Equipped with a crushing sound that will implode both your soul and skull, speed metal masters and Richmond Virginia locals MUNICIPAL WASTE barrel back onto the scene with their latest piece of toxic detritus Slime And Punishment! Their long awaited return has breathed a new life into this modern speed metal crossover project that was initially birthed in 2000. Being their sixth release, and their second on Nuclear Blast Records, it is no surprise the level of artistic freedom and creativity that was seamlessly pushed into this album.
Slime And Punishment is the first WASTE album engineered by bassist Phil “Landphil” Hall at Blaze of Torment Studios in Richmond, VA. Mixing and mastering was completed by Bill Metoyer (u.a. SLAYER, W.A.S.P., LIZZY BORDEN, DARK ANGEL) in Hollywood, CA.
