After 10 years of crossin’ over and thrashin’ out, Municipal Waste have resigned to Nuclear Blast Records, the label that brought you 2012’s The Fatal Feast, 2017’s Slime and Punishment, and 2019’s EP The Last Rager.  Municipal Waste recently wrapped work on their seventh full-length album scheduled for a 2022 release.  

Vocalist Tony Foresta states:

“When we were asked about re-signing to Nuclear Blast, only two words came to mind … no brainer! Having such a long history with an amazing label that’s been nothing but supportive made it an easy decision on our part. Looking forward to many records and even more years with The Blast!!! And an extra special thanks to everyone in the warehouse and offices all over for agreeing to stick it out with us for the years to come. Cheers NB and the Waste!”

Nuclear Blast General Manager Gerardo Martinez, states: 

“Time flies when you are having fun!  I remember signing the band 10 years ago and having the greatest feeling as we had been friends for a while. The fact that 10 years later we are renewing our partnership is just a true testament to the dedication the band has and the level of bad-assery they have by continuing to deliver incredible music for all of us, their fans. Nuclear Blast is proud to continue the path we’ve both have created … Here’s to at least another 100 more years together!”

Municipal Waste have 2021 tours lined up with Crowbar, Circle Jerks, and the mighty Anthrax in 2022.
