Richmond’s hard-charging, metal maniacs, MUNICIPAL WASTE, are kicking off 2024 with a bang with their ‘Brainsqueeze Tour” with GHOUL, NECROT, and DEAD HEAT. The 24-day trek will celebrate the 21st anniversary of the band’s seminal studio album WASTE ‘EM ALL.
The trek will embark on February 15th in Washington, DC and will travel north crossing into Canada playing Montreal and London before heading west to Denver and Los Angeles before making its way back to Virginia for the epic hometown anniversary show on March 16th!
MUNICIPAL WASTE‘s Tony Forestacommented, “We don’t do headlining runs in the states as often as we should. So this time, in order to celebrate the 21-year anniversary of our first album “Waste em All”, we wanted to do it with bands and people that we consider our family and friends.
“Back in the day, we had a tradition that our 6th band member Scotty created in Oakland called “Brain Squeeze”. It was a very fun (but short-lived) tradition that brought together people from all over the world in the small scene we built. Those events were very dear to us and we felt it needed to come back in one way or another.
“21 is a big birthday for all of us…so in order to celebrate “Waste Em All’s big one”; we thought it would be best to bring the Brain Squeeze to you! We couldn’t be more excited to have Ghoul, Necrot, and Dead Heat back on the road with us – as well as a few regional surprises along the way. This is going to be a good one. See you soon!“
In September, the WASTE ‘EM ALL reissue was released via CD, vinyl, cassette (limited to 500), and a T-shirt with reimagined artwork by Shaun Filley (ANNIHILATION TIME, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?).
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, November 10th at 10 AM local time.

ABOUT MUNICIPAL WASTE
Since 2001, MUNICIPAL WASTE have uncompromisingly stuck to their guns as hard-partying and even harder-hitting torchbearers of 21st-century thrash metal. The Richmond, VA quintet Tony Foresta [vocals], Ryan Waste[guitar], Philip “Landphil” Hall [bass], Dave Witte [drums], and Nick Poulos [guitar] – have transformed from a cult favorite into metal mainstays for a generation. Along the way, Decibel touted The Art of Partying in its coveted Hall of Fame and asserted it “revved up interest in thrash and inspired a fresh wave of youthful new bands.”Metal Hammer christened The Art of Partying one of “The 50 Greatest Thrash Metal Albums Ever,” while Loudwire pegged the album as “The Best Thrash Album of 2007” and Hazardous Mutation as “The Best Thrash Album of 2005.” The guys have sold out countless shows on multiple continents and piled up tens of millions of streams in the process.
