Richmond, Virginia-based thrashers MUNICIPAL WASTE will enter Red Planet Studios in March in the band's hometown with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (THROWDOWN, SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED) to begin recording their as-yet-untitled new album, due late August via Earache Records.The writing process for the the follow-up to 2007's "The Art Of Partying" is complete and the band is excited about bringing new ideas to the table. Frontman Tony Foresta comments: "So far the songwriting is coming off a lot more aggressive than our previous efforts." Drummer Dave Witte agrees: "This set of new songs are challenging and super fun to play, we turned up the aggressive and speed knobs while keeping the good time intact." Foresta is enthused about the direction that the band's writing has taken them on the new album. "I think it is a definite change from our last two albums," he says. "Nothing super drastic, but a positive change. The WASTE is still all about having a good time. But I think we all agreed on writing something a bit more pissed off and different with this album, Instead of going ahead and writing the same album all over again. But don't fear we're not getting 'artistic' or any bullshit like that. We've just been listening to a lot more POISON IDEA and NWOBHM and I feel it might show a bit with this next album." Songtitles set to appear on the new CD include "Massive Aggressive", "Shredded Offering" and "The Divine Blasphemer". Make sure to catch MUNICIPAL WASTE alongside LAMB OF GOD, AS I LAY DYING, CHILDREN OF BODOM and GOD FORBID on the No Fear Energy Music Tour beginning in early April.
