”It is harder and harder for US bands to come over to Europe for tours” – Interview with Tony Foresta of Municipal Waste

Author Arto Mäenpää - 27.2.2023

Lamb Of God and Kreator were originally supposed to kick off their co-headline tour State Of Unrest in March 2020 but then COVID-19 pandemic happened and the band’s had to postpone the tour for several different times.

Luckily for us metal fans the tour finally happened in 2023 and the band’s played a sold-out show with Municipal Waste as their opener at Black Box in the Icehall of Helsinki, Finland on February 19th.

For Municipal Waste touring in Europe has also been rather difficult as the band was firstly supposed to come to Europe as support band for Anthrax in the fall of 2021 but due to the high rise of logistical costs Anthrax decided to pull the plug for the tour and therefore Municipal Waste had also to delay their return to European soil.

Finally the State of Unrest tour kicked off as planned and Chaoszine sat down with Municipal Waste‘s vocalist Tony Foresta before the show in Helsinki to discuss about the difficulties in touring in Europe at the moment, the 20th anniversary of band’s debut album “Waste Em’ All” as well as what does the future hold for the crossover thrash veterans.
