Iron Reagan

Iron Reagan, the throwback punk speedfest featuring members of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, and Darkest Hour, will be releasing a new full-length on September 16. The effort is titled Tyranny of Will and is the band's first through Relapse. Along with the LP, the group will also be hitting the road for a handful of dates, including their tour with Eyehategod that hits NYC at the Acheron with Vektor, GWAR-B-Q, and Fun Fun Fun Fest. The full rundown of dates along with album details, below.

Guitarist Phil "Land Phil" Hall has also been busy, releasing a new album with Cannabis Corpse, his ode to weed and '90s death metal. I had a chance to talk to him for Invisible Oranges, and we touched on a number of subjects, including new LP From Wisdom to Baked and indulging in the verdant delights with Chris Barnes. Regarding the latter:

I guess one of the most unusual times with Cannabis Corpse was when we were on tour with Six Feet Under and Chris Barnes would invite us on the bus. He would bust out his blowtorch and blowtorch this crazy metal piece and then dab wax on metal and you would inhale the vapors. Then he had had this bowl that looked like a big knife. I thought that was perfect, to smoke weed with Chris Barnes out of a knife.

Cannabis Corpse will also be going on tour this summer, too. Their dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Cannibal Corpse (once fronted by Chris Barnes but now fronted by George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher) will release their thirteenth album, A Skeletal Domain, in September via Metal Blade. Tracklist, bigger artwork, and a new song stream, below. The band are also on the Rockstar Energy Drunk Mayhem Festival with Korn and Avenged Sevenfold and stuff, and during that tour they'll headline a NJ show on July 31 at Starland Ballroom with fellow Rockstars Suicide Silence and Wretched, plus Dying Eyes of Sloth, Carnavarice Breath and Thanatotic Desire. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

So what of Municipal Waste? They'll also be gigging around with Madball, fitting in shows between Iron Reagan, Cannabis Corpse, and, oh yeah, Bat engagements. In addition, they're on the bill for Denver Black Sky and Heavy Montreal. Finally, according to Phil, they're also working on new music:

Municipal Waste is currently writing a new record, so that'll be coming out in the future, as well.

Yeesh, and you thought you were busy picking up that double shift.
