Minneapolis, Minnesota's AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE has inked a new deal with Austrian metal label Napalm Records. The band's new album, "Tango Umbrella", will be released later in the year. The CD was recorded last summer with producer Dave Fortman (UGLY KID JOE, EVANESCENCE, EYEHATEGOD, SLIPKNOT, MUDVAYNE, GODSMACK) at Third Sky Studio in Richmond, Kentucky.

The band commented: "AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE are extremely excited to announce our signing with Napalm Records for the 2015 release of our new album, 'Tango Umbrella'.

"We'd like to thank all the fans, friends and family who contributed to make the recording process possible; we're very proud to be delivering a DIY record to you all!

"Working with Napalm will allow us a much broader reach for promoting and distributing the record and let us focus on what we love and do best: making music and playing shows.

"We look forward to 2015 being a very busy and productive year, and we thank you all again for your continued and fanatic support!"

Napalm A&R representative Sebastian Muench added: "Having lived in upstate New York for a couple years, I was right there when epic albums like 'The War of Art' and 'The Feeding' were released and the incredible effect they had on the music world back then!

"Napalm is determined and pumped to release a new AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE album after almost a decade of hibernation... and I can tell you the new songs will blow your mind!"

AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE burst onto the national scene in 2001 with their Rick Rubin-produced American Recordings debut, "The War Of Art". Aggressive, strange, cathartic, dangerous and, perhaps most importantly, different, they blended the industrial grind of MINISTRY and MARILYN MANSON with the tripped-out melodic experimentation of FAITH NO MORE. Ozzfest 2001 and a worldwide tour with SLIPKNOT followed. During that time, "The War Of Art" went on to sell in excess of 250,000 units, and it propelled the band to international acclaim with the singles "All Wrapped Up" and "Just So You Know".

After dissolving in 2008 the band reconvened four years later in 2012 and recently supported Wayne Static on a few select dates of his 15th-anniversary "Wisconsin Death Trip" tour and returned to the U.K. to perform at the Download festival along with a performance in London with KILL DEVIL HILL.

AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE will embark on a U.S. tour supporting COMBICHRIST, FILTER and COAL CHAMBER in March and April.
