An industrial metal band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
On August 11th 2009 the band released information that they had disbanded.
On June 30, 2011, bassist Chad Hanks announced the band planned on rehearsing again and making more music. Furthermore, he advertised the band's official Facebook account "American Head Charge (Official)".
The five-song Shoot EP was self-released July 23, 2013 with a national tour starting two weeks later.
In March 2014, the band started an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to finance the recording of their fourth studio album, the first full-length recording since 2005's "The Feeding". Dave Fortman had been tapped to produce the album. The band raised $53,370 exceeding the initial goal of $46,000. The band offered fans everything from downloads of new songs, pre-orders of the new album, signed gear and handwritten lyrics, VIP access to shows, name in the album credits, personal lessons, a chance to perform with the band and guestlist for life. One contributor donated to get the band to play their zombie themed wedding reception.
Following the success of the campaign, the band played multiple shows with Wayne Static and performed at the Download Festival in June 2014. Following the Download performance and a few dates in the UK, the band holed up in Kentucky at Third Sky Studios to record the long awaited full-length record.
In October 2014, the band accompanied Soil (band), Hed P.E. and Wolfborne on a tour across Europe and the UK. The band was set to go on a tour a week after returning to the states with Wolfborne and joining Wayne Static and Powerman 5000 for a multi city US tour. Due to the unfortunate passing of Wayne static on November 1, the bands regrouped and decided to soldier on with the tour in Wayne's memory.
After 6 months filled with recording and touring, the band took time off with a "Holiday Hangover" show on December 27 planned for Minneapolis' Turf Club. The band teased a big announcement for December 9 via Facebook. On December 9 the band confirmed a 2-month spring tour with Coal Chamber, Filter and Combichrist.
On March 25, 2016 their long awaited full album "Tango Umbrella" was released on Napalm Records
