Nuclear Blast has signed thrash punk act Municipal Waste who will begin recording their upcoming fifth full-length album this summer. It is slated for a 2012 release date. Here’s what the band has to say,
“It took a real long time to decide what we were going to do for our next record,” states WASTE frontman Foresta. “We wanted to work with a label that were not only fans of the band and our music, but were willing to get behind any ridiculous idea that we could think of. Once we realized this, Nuclear Blast was the obvious choice. The Blast has been friends with the band long before doing a record was even a possibility. I feel like we’re starting off with a clean slate and decade of experience to start back up on the right track. Expect some great things in the near future from the WASTE. This is only the beginning! Nuclear Blast has shown their love for the WASTE for years,” Witte continues. “And when it came time for a new deal, it was a no brainer in my eyes. NB all the way. We are thrilled to be included among a roster of great bands and hard working people that love them. I can’t wait to get into that studio!”
The band released their latest album “Massive Aggressive” in 2009 on Earache Records.
