NAPALM DEATH / MUNICIPAL WASTE / EXHUMED
This tour is actually billed as a co-headline gig by Municipal Waste along with Napalm Death.

Sci-fi Arizona thrashers Vektor, Canadian punk band Dayglo Abortions, Bay Area crossover band Attitude Adjustment, and Colorado speed thrashers Speedwolf.
But wait, there’s still more!
Again depending on the locations, fans will also get to see guest sets from U.S. grindcore bastards Repulsion, Chicago punks Dwarves, and Seattle’s Martha Splatterhead’s Revenge. Continue reading »
