MUNICIPAL WASTE, the critically acclaimed crossover thrash act from
Richmond, VA will be playing alongside such metal luminaries as LAMB
Fear Energy Music Tour. The tour will start on April 2nd in Phoenix,

to the seasoned veteran. Join us & come face the Waste!"

chance to really set themselves apart from the other bands on the
lineup and turn heads as the lone thrash band on the bill.

thing;" says MUNICIPAL WASTE guitarist, Ryan Waste. "This is a chance
for us to spread our style of hardcore thrash to a crowd that's
