AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE: Second-Guessing Creative Instincts

July 12, 2003

AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE have apparently encountered some resistance from their record company, American Recordings, with regards to their plans to head back into the studio to record their next studio album.

According to a posting on the band's official web site by bassist Chad Hanks, AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE have thus far "written, recorded, re-written, re-recorded, re-arranged, and re-re-recorded" 24 tracks. "Oh, joy... I just found out minutes ago 'they' want us to record them, again...maybe dinner and a movie first?..." he writes. "It's an awful feeling when you're pushed to second guess your creative instincts because the machine doesn't seem to hear that great radio single. From what I remember, they signed a band called AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE... Hell, we didn't even write 'Just So You Know' until after we moved to L.A. last time, and that song just happened to lend itself to the 'single' category, naturally, without, someday we'll record another for me? I'm stuck in the southernmost part of Iowa at my fiancee's parents house with no legal vehicle and an ongoing dialogue with our record company regarding our supposedly unripened songs and our amazing inability to leave the Midwest..."
