On November 1, vocalist Tony Foresta and bassist Philip “Landphil” Hall of the Richmond, Virginia crossover act MUNICIPAL WASTE were interviewed by Denise Falzon in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for the latest episode of Exclaim! TV‘s “Aggressive Tendencies”series. You can now watch the chat below.
MUNICIPAL WASTE‘s fifth album, “The Fatal Feast”, sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at No. 3 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The band’s previous effort, “Massive Aggressive”, opened with around 2,100 copies back in September 2009 to debut at No. 10 on the Heatseekers chart.
“The Fatal Feast” was released on April 10, 2011 in North America and April 13, 2011 in Europe via Nuclear Blast Records. The cover artwork for the CD was created by Justin Osbourn of Slasher Design and can be seen below.
“The Fatal Feast” features guest appearances by John Connelly (guitarist and vocalist for NUCLEAR ASSAULT), Steve Moore (who plays bass and synthesizers for ZOMBI), and vocalist Tim Barry (ex-AVAIL).
“You’re Cut Off”, the animated video from MUNICIPAL WASTE, can be seen below. The clip was created by Pierre Mousquet and Jerume Cauwe of IMOV Studios.
Commented MUNICIPAL WASTE frontman Tony Foresta: “We’ve always wanted to see an animated WASTE video and this blew away our expectations. I’m stoked that the Wizard came out of his brief retirement to make an appearance as well. I’ve watched this thing over 40 times and I still keep finding hidden gems. If you hated our band before, you are really going to hate us after you witness this beautiful piece of work.”
