Richmond’s Thrash Metallers MUNICIPAL WASTE, have released “High Speed Steel”, the second single of their upcoming album “Electrified Brain”, out on July 1st via Nuclear Blast. The track comes with an official lyric video.

Commenting on the single, guitarist Ryan Waste says: ” ‘High Speed Steel’ is our ode to an era when Heavy Metal was transitioning into a faster form. We pushed the limits of our sound to channel that classic dynamic and keep the intensity high. It’s about overcoming the pressure and slicing down the odds when everything is stacked against you.”

“Electrified Brain” will be MUNICIPAL WASTE’s first album in five years, following 2017’s “Slime and Punishment”. The band recorded the album during the pandemic in Philadelphia with producer Arthur Rizk (POWER TRIP, CODE ORANGE).

“We’re not writing any love ballads to sell records,” vocalist Tony Foresta noted upon the initial album announcement. “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.”

MUNICIPAL WASTE are playing numerous tour dates with a slew of high profile heavy acts in the coming months. Following a June 18th appearance at Pure Filth Festival in Liverpool, New York, the band will link up with INTEGRITY and BEWITCHER for a handful of June dates before joining AT THE GATES, THROWN INTO EXILE and ENFORCED for select August shows.
