Metal brethren, we’ll make this as quick and painless as blunt force trauma: speed metal punks MUNICIPAL WASTE have teamed up with grindcore legends NAPALM DEATH for a co-headlining North American fall tour that will make fans around the world chew their arms off in envy!
Launching on October 26th in Springfield, Virginia and presented by AMP and Hails & Horns magazines, direct support on the tour will come from California’s own Exhumed and will include one of the following four opening bands (depending on the date): sci-fi Arizona thrashers Vektor, Canadian punk band Dayglo Abortions, Bay Area crossover stalwarts Attitude Adjustment, and Colorado speed thrashers Speedwolf.
The tour’s added attraction includes guest sets from U.S. grindcore innovators Repulsion, Chicago punks Dwarves, and Seattle’s Martha Splatterhead’s Revenge.
Just how awesome is this tour gonna be? We present to you with this personal guarantee from drummer Dave Witte of MUNICIPAL WASTE: “The energy will be off the charts! The tour in general is stacked with great bands and totally worth traveling for. I’ve been a huge Napalm fan since the beginning and I’m thrilled to be able to combine forces for this tour.”
“I’ve been wanting to tour with Napalm for ages,” vocalist Tony Foresta confesses. “I’m so glad this is finally a reality. Waste and Napalm hand-picked all of the openers. We’re beyond stoked that all these great bands wanted to be a part of it. We’re really excited!”
Fans are encouraged to attend more than just one show. Win your own Gold Medal in Concert Attendance – for bragging rights, of course.
