Richmond, Virginia’s MUNICIPAL WASTE have unveiled the cover art for their much anticipated new album, Massive Aggressive, which is scheduled to drop August 24th through Earache Records. According to MUNICIPAL WASTE vocalist, Tony Foresta, the only man who could get that imagery just right was Andrei Bouzikov, who was also responsible for the cover to 2007’s The Art of Partying.
Foresta explains: “We wanted to work with Andrei Bouzikov again because he is like a brother to us. He is one of the few people that can tolerate me and Ryan’s insane pickiness and attention to detail. Not only that but he is multi-talented and can do many different styles of art and understands exactly where we are coming from.
“We knew we wanted to stray away from the traditional painted covers that so many new ‘Thrash’ bands seem to be doing since Hazardous Mutation came out. We wanted the artwork to go a different direction the same way that our music has. I think we have achieved it.”
MUNICIPAL WASTE are set to preview three tracks from the new album in the early hours of Tuesday morning on Mike Davies’ “The Lock Up” on BBC Radio 1. The songs set to be included on the show are “Wrong Answer”, “Wolves Of Chernobyl” and “Acid Sentence,” and Foresta will be participating in an interview on the show.
