Reformed Minneapolis, Minnesota-based hard-rock/industrial act AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE entered Studio D in Cleveland, Ohio this past Monday, October 24 with producers Don Dibiase and Thom Hazaert to begin recording its first new material since 2005's "The Feeding". The result of the 24-hour marathon session was a new studio track "Sugars of Someday" and a "live" EP including three new AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE tracks: "Sand", "Set Yourself on Fire", "Writhe" and a cover of the PATTI SMITH classic "Rock And Roll Nigger".

Commented AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE bassist Chad Hanks: "Don and Thom gave us the opportunity to jump into the studio on our day off, and we thought it would be agreat chance to give something back to our fans.

"Since we first announced HEAD CHARGE was active again, there has been such an amazing outpouring from fans for new material, that when this came up, we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to give everyone a taste of where AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE is at musically in 2011."

The band plans to release the material as a free digital EP later this year.

AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE is in the middle of a 10-date U.S. tour, dubbed "Tourette". A list of upcoming shows can be found at this location.

AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE announced in August 2009 that it was disbanding due to Heacock's "inability to continue on a musical career path."

The band's sophomore album, "The Feeding", came out in February 2005.

AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE released a DVD/CD entitled "Can't Stop the Machine" in April 2007 on Nitrus Records via Fontana/Universal. The 90-minute DVD chronicled HEAD CHARGE's career with a poignant tribute to deceased guitarist Bryan Ottoson, insightful interviews and no holds barred live footage. The companion CD featured unreleased tracks and a remix of the HEAD CHARGE classic "Just So You Know" by Wired All Wrong.
