Virginian thrash vets Municipal Waste have announced plans to celebrate the big 2-1 of their incendiary debut, Waste Em All with a rare headlining trek with the Brainsqueeze 2024 Tour.
Set to kick off mid-February in Washington D.C. te 24-date trek will conclude with a special hometown headliner, taking over The National in Richmond, VA along with a slobberknocker of a supporting cast with sets from Ghoul, Necrot and 805 shredders, Dead Heat.
Waste vocalist Tony Foresta detailed the significance of the early 2024 stretch. “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.
As for the title, Foresta explained, "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.
Foresta finished with, "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!”
