Legendary independent film company Troma Entertainment will shoot MUNICIPAL WASTE's music video next week in New York for the thrash party anthem "Headbanger Face Rip" from the band's latest album, "The Art of Partying".
Founded by Lloyd Kaufman in 1974, Troma is known the world over for its genre-defining B-movie style shock flicks that specialize in graphic violence, political satire and a bizarre sense of humour. Having produced classics such as "The Toxic Avenger", "Class Of Nuke 'Em High" and "Sgt Kabukiman, NYPD", this will be the perfect marriage of splatter-style visuals with MUNICIPAL WASTE's colorful high-energy thrash assault.
Commented Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma and creator of "The Toxic Avenger", "The Troma team and I are huge fans of Earache Records and MUNICIPAL WASTE, and we're excited to make 'Headbanger Face Rip' into a truly tromatic and toxi-riffic music video experience!"
MUNICIPAL WASTE's lyrical miracle himself, Tony Foresta, is equally excited about the upcoming shoot: "Troma's awesome! They are a huge influence on our music, we are working out concepts for an amazing video. Hopefully it will have boobies in it and blood and shit."
Lloyd Kaufman himself sums it up best: "It seems fitting that MUNICIPAL WASTE would ask the Troma team to make a video for 'Headbanger Face Rip' as we've been ripping faces off on film for over 30 years!"
"The Art Of Partying" is out now on CD (with free patch) and 10 different colored vinyl LPs on Earache Records in Europe (it is due in the U.S. on July 31).
