US crossover thrashers Municipal Waste were yesterday prevented from flying from their hometown in Richmond, Virginia to play a series of festival shows in the UK. The band appeared at the check-in desk for their US AIRWAYS flight US3224, but were stopped from boarding, with the reason given being due to ‘heightened security measures.’

Undeterred, and eager not to disappoint their UK fans at their upcoming Reading and Leeds festival shows, Municipal Waste rescheduled their flight for today and are expected to arrive in the UK on Thursday 24th August and head directly to their first show in Exeter.

The band will greet their British audience with extra-intensity at what are sure to be raw and energy-fuelled performances at this weekend’s Carling Festival, and will air songs from their 2005 Earache release ‘Hazardous Mutation’. They are also due to meet fans at an in-store signing session at 5pm at Exeter’s Solo Records on August 24th.

Municipal Waste will perform at:

24.08.2006 UK EXETER Cavern Club
25.08.2006 UK READING Carling Festival Lock Up Stage, 1.30pm
26.08.2006 UK LEEDS Carling Festival Lock Up Stage, 1.30pm
27.08.2006 UK MANCHESTER Music Box
28.08.2006 UK NEWCASTLE Cumberland Arms
