American Head Charge Return With ‘Sugars of Someday’ (SONG PREMIERE)
Reunited industrial-metallers American Head Charge are set to return to record stores with Interstice, a new EP which marks the group’s first new music since their 2005 The Feeding album.
Recorded at Cleveland’s Studio D (with additional tracking and mixing done in the band’s hometown of Minneapolis) the EP is set to include four new AHC tracks and a cover of the Patti Smith classic “Rock and Roll Nigger.”
The reunited lineup of American Head Charge including vocalist Cameron Heacock, bassist Chad Hanks, guitarists Karma Cheema and Sin Quirin (Ministry, Revolting Cocks), Keyboardist Justin Fowler, and drummer Chris Emery are currently on the Hed2Head 3 tour with Mushroomhead and (hed)pe, following up with dates with Slipknot‘s Sid Wilson.
In an exclusive, Noisecreep got its hands on “Sugars of Someday,” a new track off the forthcoming Interstice EP. Check out the track below, along with Cheema’s thoughts on the song.
Listen to “Sugars of Someday” From American Head Charge
“This was a song that Chad had written during the time Head Charge was in limbo; we actually had three different singers put vocals on it prior to Cameron coming back,” says American Head Charge guitarist Karma Cheema. “During the first rehearsal, we were working with Sin while Cam was out in the car demoing stuff on his laptop. Unbeknownst to us Cam wrote the vocals almost immediately and came in to play it for us and asked ‘What do you think about this?’ We were all pretty blown away. It’s more of a radio song than we’ve ever written, not by design, that’s just the way it came out. We’re at this kinda weird interim between the past and present of Head Charge, and this song was written right in the middle of all that.
“We know it’s a departure but we’re very proud of it, however, it’s in no way indicative of what’s coming. We’re not planning to make a whole record of songs that sound like this, but ‘Sugars’ captures a moment in time for a band that had kinda lost its way. The magic of Head Charge, really, is the core members doing what they do together, and “Sugars” is the first time since we wrote The Feeding, that we had a great representation of that. “
American Head Charge’s Sugars of Someday will be released on iTunes tomorrow (May 9) via THC : Music, with plans for a special download promotion to follow. The Interstice EP will hit stores later this year.
