Veteran thrashers Exodus and comparatively newer thrashers Municipal Waste (who released their first LP in five years last year) are teaming for the Adult Swim-presented Thrash-tacular Metal Tour, which is in support of the new season of Adult Swim's animated series Mr. Pickles. Exodus' Gary Holt (who's also currently in Slayer) said, "Super excited to hit the road again with our good bros in Municipal Waste for the Adult Swim’s Mr. Pickles Thrash-tacular tour! This will be a thrash extravaganza at its finest!!!! Can't wait!" Municipal Waste's Ryan Waste added:

We go way back with Will and Dave, the creators of Mr. Pickles. They come from Richmond, VA as well and even shot our first music video for "Unleash the Bastards." We’ve remained good friends throughout all our endeavors and when they asked us to be part of this tour there was no hesitation on our part. The icing on the cake was when Exodus came on board. We’re no stranger to touring with these maniacs and we’ve shared some wild times on the road over the years (at least from what I can remember!) It’s gonna be one helluva trip, hitting the US club circuit with our brothers in Exodus and seeing our old friends along the way.

The tour includes a NYC show on March 7 at Irving Plaza. Tickets are on various presales now (passwords = ACCESS and PICKLES666), and the public on-sale starts Friday (1/12) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
