Partiers, you’ve been taught the ‘Art’ and now it is time for an advanced lesson. Virginia speed metal punks MUNICIPAL WASTE are proud to announce their latest offering The Last Rager, which will be released on October 11th via Nuclear Blast.

Back with 4 ripping tracks that embrace all of the band’s punk and street metal roots without clutching at the past. That honest formula has led the WASTE to innovate the festival scene with the opening track and party of the summer ‘Wave Of Death’. Watch the music video that was edited by Mark Reâtegui from footage compiled from the band’s roadie Scotty Tankcrimes from the last couple of tours, here: youtu.be/CalJjHGJVrU

Municipal Waste announced a killer tour earlier this week – a 16 date European and UK tour set for this winter, with support lined up from Toxic Holocaust, label mates Enforcer and Skeletal Remains.

Tony Foresta commented: “Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realised there had to be another way. This tour will hopefully bring forth a new kind of winter cheer. Something for the rest of us.”
