Minneapolis, Minnesota hard rock/industrial metal outfit AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE will independently release a new EP, "Shoot", on July 23. The disc was recorded by Don Debiase at Studio D Productions in Cleveland, Ohio and was mixed by Dave Fortman at Balance Productions in New Orleans, Louisiana. The artwork was created by Sam "Mister-Sam" Shearon.
"We're extremely proud of this little gem," states AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE bassist and co-founder Chad Hanks. "For an EP, it was a long, arduous process that spanned five states and six studios, but we persevered and succeeded. This is our first major step back into the game, and the next step in serving up a full-length AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE record."
He adds: "The 'heavy music scene' is even worse off than we left it 6 years ago. We're looking to rectify that."
"Shoot" track listing:
02. Set Yourself On Fire
03. Sugars Of Someday
05. Rock N Roll N*gger (PATTI SMITH cover)

"Shoot" can be pre-ordered from the AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE web site and fans can bundle the CD with an exclusive poster and t-shirt. All pre-orders will receive a code to digitally download the EP a week prior to its release.
The first leg of the "Shoot Tour" will kick off on August 2 in Madison, Wisconsin The Regent State Theater.
Joining AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE on the "Shoot Tour", on select dates, are fellow Minneapolis heavy rockers BLUE FELIX and "humorcore" kings PSYCHOSTICK.
"We're all very excited to go out and tour the U.S. in support of our new EP," continues Hanks. "It's been a year since we've been on the road, and we're more than ready to deliver the goods. Prepare yourselves, America."
AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE will formally celebrate the release of the EP on September 6, the final date of the tour, with a blowout event at the famed Minneapolis concert venue First Avenue.
