Municipal Waste’s Tony Foresta: “We’re Sitting On A Lot Of New Material”

During a recent interview with Overdrive.ie, Municipal Waste’s Tony Foresta revealed that the band are “sitting on a lot of new material.” He said the following:

“…To be honest we’re sitting on a lot of new material and I reckon we’re just gonna go for another album. It took us five years to make ‘Slime…‘ and now we’re only 2 years deep and we’re ready to go again! I’ve been so busy with Iron Reagan and Municipal… that I’m actually taking 5/6 months off, just because I’m fucking overworked. It’s finally come to a point where I’ve hit a wall with both projects and I’m exhausted from it.”

Entheos To Release New Music Independently This Year

It looks like Entheos are planning to release new music this year. The band confirmed the news on Facebook and also revealed that the new material will be released independently.

The group said the following:

“We are close to finished packing up one of our best merch days ever, online or off. As you may or may not know, we’ve decided to release all of the music we plan on putting out this year independently. No label, just us. The reason that we are able to do this is 100% because of the support that you all have shown our band. For that we are eternally grateful.

ALL money made at http://entheosofficial.bigcartel.com goes directly into the creation of our art. We’re often asked “how can we help you the most?” Purchasing from that store is how. Right now we are running a $10 sale on ALL OF OUR SHIRTS. Pick something up there. It will go directly toward new music.

Saying “thank you” is the least we can do – you guys really inspired us this weekend. Thank you guys SO much.

ENTHEOS”

As we're moving into the holidays and 2019 is about to close its chapter, we’d like to extend a thanks to everyone who supported us this year! On the live front, we saw the night come down over several cities as NITND celebrated its 10th anniversary. Another dear experience! Oh and for the record, that's now our 4th album that we’ve played from start to finish, not bad right? However, 2020 is the threshold to a new decade and will see us keepin’ busy for other reasons than paying tribute to our past. Actually, here’s a pic to give you a clue about what’s waiting on the other side… Will we see you there? #Katatonia #katatoniaband #2020 #callonthebird #heretostay #madeinsweden #danishdynamite

Judas Priest To Write New Material In Early 2020

Judas Priest are planning to start writing new material in early 2020. Frontman Rob Halford confirmed the news while talking about the band’s upcoming plans during an interview with WAAF.

Halford said the following:

“I’ll be heading back to the U.K. for the holidays, see my family and friends. And then we’re gonna start… There are two things happening. We’re gonna go into writing sessions in the early New Year, because we’re still buzzing from the ‘Firepower‘ record and we’re raring to go, to see what else what we can come up with musically, through writing.

So we’ve got that in planning. And then we go into the big production for the 50th anniversary, which, I believe, kicks off in Finland in June, I think it is. And then that’s it there. We’re off around the world for the rest of 2020 and some of 2021, celebrating 50 years of Judas Priest.”
