MetalSucks, in conjunction with Live Nation, has announced The Metal Suckfest. The festival will take place at New York City's Gramercy Theater and will feature 20 bands over the course of two days, November 4 and November 5. MUNICIPAL WASTE will headline the first night, while CYNIC will close the festival the following evening. The remaining acts will be revealed soon.MUNICIPAL WASTE will enter the studio later this summer to begin recording its fifth full-length album for a 2012 release via Nuclear Blast Records. CYNIC last year parted ways with bassist Robin Zielhorst and guitarist Tymon Kruidenier due to the "logistical challenges of maintaining a band that is half based in The Netherlands and the other half in the United States" (drummer Sean Reinert and guitarist/vocalist Paul Masvidal live in California).
