Pre-order Municipal Waste's new album 'Electrified Brian' on white vinyl, limited to 300 copies and exclusive to our stores, here.

Richmond crossover thrash staples Municipal Waste are back a new album, Electrified Brain, due out July 1 via Nuclear Blast. It's their seventh studio album and their first in five years, the follow-up to 2017's Slime and Punishment, and they recorded it in Philly with producer Arthur Rizk. "We’re not writing any love ballads to sell records," vocalist Tony Foresta says. "We’re just doing what we’ve always done since the band started—and that’s try to write loud, fast, and ripping hardcorepunkmetal. We hope you walk away with some bloody ears, blown speakers, pissed off parents, black eyes, and a healthy distrust of authority."

You can definitely hear that coming through in lead single "Grave Dive," which Tony says is "in the vein of songs like 'Headbanger Face Rip' and 'Wave of Death.' It’s an inspirational song for our fans to cause bodily harm to themselves, but in a loud and healthy way, of course." Listen below.

We've also teamed up with Municipal Waste for a white vinyl pressing of Electrified Brain, limited to just 300 copies and exclusive to our stores. Pre-order yours HERE while they last.

Municipal Waste will be on tour in the US and Europe throughout 2022 in support of Electrified Brain. See all dates below.
