Municipal Waste To Reunite Original Lineup

Municipal Waste have posted the following update via Myspace:

"In the Waste 'Em All years, Municipal Waste developed a reputation that they are still living up to today. It was due to the early, insane live performances that set the bar for what people expect to see at a Waste show. Wind swept circle pits, 69 stage dives, wacky costumes, and pizza shark boogie bongs still show up whether the band plans it or not. Maybe it was just the off stage antics, excessive drinking, or the tendency to eat all the food out of an unsuspecting victim's fridge that sent the message that was (and still is) very clear: Municipal Waste is gonna fuck you up!

"Now you can't rewrite history, but you can relive it on Friday, August 15th 2008 at Alley Katz in Richmond, VA. The Waste will be reuniting the Waste 'Em All lineup for one show as part of the 7th annual Best Friends Day Weekend. The lineup, which includes Brandon Ferrell on drums, Andy Harris on bass, Tony Foresta on vocals, and Ryan Waste on guitar, will be playing the Waste 'Em All album in it's entirety along with some other classic cuts.

"This show is a must see for any true fan of live music! The other acts of the night include: PAINT IT BLACK, QUADILIACHA, CAUSTIC CHRIST, BRUTAL KNIGHTS, and RELIGIOUS AS FUCK. The show starts at 7pm @ Alley Katz (10 Walnut Alley) and costs $10. Come out and support The Waste and Best Friends Day 7!"

At The Gates Posts US Tour Update

At The Gates has posted the first of their US tour diary entries from their US tour with Darkest Hour, Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust:

"We arrived this Tuesday in New York. I (Anders) got in to JFK and took the bus across town to meet the other guys @ Newark airport.

"Our sound engineer Bo missed his connecting flight out of Amsterdam, and on top of that his bag was a.w.o.l upon arrival in JFK. And if that wasn't enough, he got an ear infection resulting in high fever, massive pain & distorted mono hearing. He seemed slightly better today. Got his bag from the airport and everything, but he's still feeling pretty shit.

"The first two gigs at Irving plaza were amazing. It was great to see the other bands on the bill enjoying some great crowd response, It was my (Tomas) impression that all bands have had really good gigs so far. The first gig was without AC, so it was like 120 degrees on stage :/

"We are enjoying this tour a lot so far, and it's amazing to see the crowd response after 12 years of silence. Thanks to all the people coming out and making this a special event."

You can check out some photos from the tour on At The Gates' MySpace blog as well.
