Exodus & Municipal Waste Announce “Mr. Pickles Thrashtacular Tour”

Exodus and Municipal Waste have announced that they will be heading out on the “Mr. Pickles Thrashtacular Tour.” The trek is sponsored by Adult Swim‘s animated series “Mr. Pickles,” and it will kickoff around the February 25 season three premiere of the show.

Exodus guitarist Gary Holt commented:

“Super excited to hit the road again with our good bros in Municipal Waste for the Adult Swim’s ‘Mr. Pickles Thrashtacular’ tour! This will be a thrash extravaganza at its finest!!!! Can’t wait!”

Municipal Waste guitarist Ryan Waste added:

“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.”

Kathy Griffin’s Lawyer Calls Out GWAR, Marilyn Manson, & Municipal Waste During Press Conference

Comedian Kathy Griffin recently faced quite a bit of controversy after a photo shoot in which she posed with a mock severed head of Donald Trump. In an interesting twist, Griffin and her attorney Lisa Bloom decided to call out GWAR for decapitating presidents through the years, Marilyn Manson for decapitating Trump in his “Say10” clip, and Municipal Waste for their Trump gunshot head shirt, as part of her defense during a press conference yesterday.

Bloom said the following:

“Many male artists have created far more disturbing imagery. A Marilyn Manson music video shows him beheading a Trump figure. The band Municipal Waste has an image of Trump with a bloody gunshot to his head on a band t-shirt. The band G-W-A-R has had violent images like this for president after president for years. They’re all just considered bad boys. Unlike these male artists, Kathy apologized.”

Municipal Waste’s Tony Foresta told Style Weekly the following about the situation:

“We did this shit two years ago, get with the times, Kathy. Haha, just kidding! For years comedians, actors, musicians, (literally everyone), have been speaking out against Trump, not just metal bands.

I don’t understand why people are making such a big deal now. I think it’s pretty messed up that she’s basically being singled out because she’s a prominent female comedian.

I feel that people from all walks of life should have equal rights in desecrating Trump‘s bloody corpse. Welcome to the club, Kathy!”

GWAR’s Beefcake The Mighty also commented:

“We’d like to invite Kathy Griffin to join us on stage in decapitating Trump, then we’d like to kill her. She and her lawyer need to learn how to say Gwar. It’s not an acronym. It’s a guttural feeling. You just have to belt it out.”

“We’ve been killing presidents for years now and we’ll continue. We don’t discriminate. We’re not into politics and we hate all humans. We’ll kill everyone.”
