The “Mr. Pickles Thrash-tacular Metal Tour,” featuring Bay Area thrash metal masters Exodus and Richmond crossover favorites Municipal Waste, has been announced.
Sponsored by Adult Swim‘s animated series titled “Mr. Pickles,” the 13-date jaunt goes down in February and March with stops in CA, UT, CO, NY, VA and more. Regarding the upcoming trek, Exodus‘ Gary Holt declares:
Super excited to hit the road again with our good bros in Municipal Waste for the Adult Swim’s Mr. Pickles Thrash-tacular tour! This will be a thrash extravaganza at its finest!!!! Can’t wait!
Municipal Waste‘s Ryan Waste adds:
We go way back with Will and Dave, the creators of Mr. Pickles. They come from Richmond, VA as well and even shot our first music video for ‘Unleash the Bastards’. We’ve remained good friends throughout all our endeavors and when they asked us to be part of this tour there was no hesitation on our part. The icing on the cake was when EXODUS came on board. We’re no stranger to touring with these maniacs and we’ve shared some wild times on the road over the years (at least from what I can remember!) It’s gonna be one helluva trip, hitting the US club circuit with our brothers in EXODUS and seeing our old friends along the way.
The local gig happens at Manhattan’s Irving Plaza on March 7 [TIX go on sale on 1/12].
Exodus and Municipal Waste are touring in support of their latest full-lengths on Nuclear Blast, Blood in Blood Out and Slime and Punishment, respectively. Stream tunes and check out all upcoming dates below.
