Metal/hardcore drummer extraordinaire Dave Witte has officially joined Richmond thrash-core squad MUNICIPAL WASTE. Revered in underground circles from the U.S. to Japan, Witte has hit the skins for such bands as HUMAN REMAINS, DISCORDANCE AXIS, MELT-BANANA and BURNT BY THE SUN.

With ballistic thrash riffs, irreverent punk attitude, and a healthy dose of humor, MUNICIPAL WASTE are the heirs to the "crossover" legacy; their blazing brand of thrash-infested hardcore revives the spirit of the mid-'80s scene, from D.R.I. to SUICIDAL TENDENCIES to old C.O.C.

MUNICIPAL WASTE frontman Tony Foresta had this to say about the group's latest addition: "Dave Witte has officially joined the band and is now our full-time drummer. We're halfway through with writing material for the new album and things have been going a lot faster than ever."

Witte added: "I am an ultra whirlwind holocaust attack, stoked to join the WASTE. It's a thrill to be a part of a band that is fun. Expect some serious thrashin' action."
