Municipal Waste re-sign with Nuclear Blast Records

After a decade of wreaking havoc together, Virginia metal freaks, Municipal Waste and Nuclear Blast, have officially re-signed a global deal that will expand the NUCLEAR-WASTE union for years to come. To date, the co-conspiratorial partnership has spawned some of the best crossover thrash of the past 20 years with 2 studio records, “The Fatal Feast” from 2012 and “Slime and Punishment” from 2017 and an EP, “The Last Rager, 2019 ”” and they’re just getting started! The group recently completed work on their highly anticipated 7th album, due for release in 2022. Further details will be revealed in the coming months.

The group comments on the re-signing:
When we were asked to sign again with Nuclear Blast, only 2 words came to mind… no fuss! Having such a long history with an amazing label that has only been supportive made it an easy decision on our part. I look forward to many more records and more years with The Blast !!! And a special thank you to everyone in the warehouse and offices everywhere for agreeing to stick with us for years to come. Long live NB and waste!“- Tony Foresta (vocals)

We couldn’t think of a more suitable place for waste than our radioactive family at Nuclear Blast. They have always given us complete creative freedom and challenged us to push it to the limit with our deranged ideas. As the world of music evolves with the times, we are convinced that our vision remains unfazed by trends and our label supports us with all the force.. “- Ryan Waste (guitarist)

I think I can say that working with Nuclear Blast has been a pleasure from start to finish. Going forward with them was not easy, it’s also a privilege to be on the same label as MANY other fantastic bands! I can’t wait to bring more music to the world with Nuclear Blast!“- Land Phil (bassist)

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, you know? I am so happy that we have extended our relationship with Nuclear Blast. They understand who we are and it was obvious to re-sign. Their dedication to metal combined with the label’s history makes NB the perfect house for us.. “- Dave Witte (drummer)

Nuclear Blast CEO Gerardo Martinez adds:
Time flies when you’re having fun! I remember signing the band ten years ago and having the best feeling of being friends in a while. The fact that ten years later we are renewing our partnership is just a real testament to the band’s dedication and level of badassery they have in continuing to deliver amazing music for all of us, their fans. Nuclear Blast is proud to continue on the path we both created… Let’s go for at least 100 more years together!
