Recruiting willing fans, ultra-heavy rockers American Head Charge add some headlining club shows in the run-up to the Pledge Of Allegiance tour. The band heads out September 28 and has 10 shows to themselves before joining up with the Pledge Of Allegiance stint October 11 in St. Paul, Minn.
Although a fairly new band with their debut album War Of Art only having been released at the end of August, the seven-member group has already landed slots in some of the highest profile metal tours.
They played the second stage for the Ozzfest 2001, sharing ranks with Pledge tour mates Mudvayne, as well as Drowning Pool, Taproot, Spineshank, and Beautiful Creatures.
An opening slot on System Of A Down's 1999 tour helped American Head Charge break out of the local band scene and land a recording contract.
The System dudes were so impressed with what they heard that they marched execs from their record label, American Recordings, out of their offices and down to see American Head Charge performing first-hand.
The plan obviously worked. Not only did the band land a record deal, their alliance with System Of A Down hasn't hurt their touring career one bit, either.
