MUNICIPAL WASTE reissued their "Hazardous Mutation" album in Europe with a free bonus live DVD on October 30 via Earache. The DVD was filmed at a show in the band's hometown of Richmond, Virginia. In addition to the live set, the DVD includes interviews with the band members, capturing the true comedy and humour that make MUNICIPAL WASTE so distinctive.
Since the release of "Hazardous Mutation" in 2005, MUNICIPAL WASTE has toured extensively all over Europe, U.K., U.S. and Australia, delivering their infectious brand of old school thrash to appreciative audiences, including a blistering set at this year's Reading and Leeds festivals.
