The band, which has just finished a short run around the USA, will be kicking off the European tour on Friday, December 3rd in Belfast, UK. Support will come from Saviours and Ramming Speed. Municipal Waste drummer Dave Witte comments:
"We are ready to return to the UK/EU with Saviours and Ramming Speed to celebrate our last tour of the year. It's gonna be awesome! Get there early, this is a great bill that you won't wanna miss!"
Front man Tony Foresta adds:
"I'm really looking forward to getting back over there. It feels like it's been forever since we've been. It seems like each time we come back the crowds get bigger and crazier. It's always good to come back year after year to see the same familiar faces as well as hordes of new ones getting rowdy to our music. I can't wait. This time we're taking Ramming Speed and Saviours. Both bands we've known for a while and dig them as friends as well as musicians, so I'm assuming that every night will be entertaining onstage as well as everywhere else this rowdy crew goes. It should be a fun one."

Frontman Tony Foresta of Richmond, VA's Municipal Waste has issued the following update about the band's activity:
"Greetings from Richmond! A lot of people have been asking what's been going on with the Waste lately and here is a quick update. Our summer at home is starting to come to an end and for a great summer ender our Best Friends Day gig was outstanding and probably was my favorite shows of the year. It was so much fun playing such a rowdy and energetic show in our hometown with so many amazing people and bands. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported it.
"We are really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things after having the majority of the summer off (which we haven't had in years). You can see our video for 'Acid Sentence' on youtube, myspace and the familiar places. It was produced by the great people at Fangoria. We have some really cool gigs coming up in the near future starting with us Headlining the Tankcrimes Brainsqueeze Fest in Oakland California on OCT 9th with our good friends Ghoul, Direct Control and Vitamin X and tons more. We haven't been out west in a long time and we are not sure when we will make it back so DONT MISS IT! Then back on the East Coast on Halloween weekend we are heading down to The Fest in Gainesville Florida. Halloween gigs are really special for us because we always dress up for the occasion and our costumes are usually pretty offensive/ridiculous and this year should be no exception. You have been warned. More...

Ryan Waste, guitarist of crossover thrash metal band Municipal Waste, has announced that he has formed a new band entitled Volture, which will be more in the vein of bands such as Judas Priest, Mercyful Fate and Heavy Load. A statement from Ryan Waste reads as follows:
"Ever since I was a young headbanger, I dreamed of doing a real heavy metal band. Growing up on Judas Priest and eventually delving into more obscure NWOBHM bands, I yearned to have one of my own. It wasn’t until 8 years ago when I met our vocalist, Brent Hubbard, that I thought this would actually be possible. His natural singing ability floored me upon the first note and I knew we needed to start a band. It’s been a long time coming, but I am proud to say we have arrived in full force to shock the world with Volture! In this heavy metal ensemble, I returned to my musical roots as a bass player along side the phenomenal shredder Nick Poulos on guitar. Joined by veteran Barry Cover behind the kit, we are now stronger than ever."
