American Head Charge’s Chad Hanks posted on their official web site their reason for dropping off the Coal Chamber/ Medication/ Lollipop Lust Kill tour. Hank’s wrote:

Okay...The Official Reason We Have Dropped Off of the Coal Chamber Tour:

Our producer and label owner, Rick Rubin, has requested that we take these next 5-7 weeks (depending on if we go overseas again mid-August) to start demo-ing for the new record. Of course we'll take a few personal days off, but then it's right back to work.

Let's be real for a second. We've been touring like a speed-fueled vaudeville show that, in their psychosis, hasn't realized that it's not 1932 anymore. We've had little to no time in the past 15 months to sit down and really make a concerted effort to work on new material. We have tons of bits, pieces, riffs, parts, lyrics, poems, etc... but we need the time and a place to make this all come together. And considering that this will be the only chance (most probably) to get the basic ideas down before November, it seemed in our best interest (and the interest of those that would like to see a future AHC album come to fruition) to take advantage of this time, and excuse ourselves from the Coal Chamber tour. That's about it.

Of course, we came up with quite a few strange reasons we thought might be interesting to throw out there (volunteer firemen needed to fight the blazes out west, J. needed a toe removed, Martin needed vocal cord replacement surgery, I moved to Amsterdam and have refused to come back, whatever...). But the bottom line is that we have a new AHC record to work on. And that's good for everybody, don't you think?

So we've been back (technically) since Friday, and I'm still trying to get out of touring mode. I don't need to write my name on my food for fear of one of my stoned brothers eating it out of the bus fridge. I don't have to tie my shoes together before I go to bed, since they'll most probably be where I left them the night before. I don't have to make sure I have my bus key and laminates on me 24-7. I can shit in any toilet I want. I can watch TV without the satellite going out (ever tried to watch Mullholland Drive like that? Maddening!). I don't have to answer another interview question like "So, what was it like working with Rick Rubin?" (and for anybody that might need to know the answer to that question, get online and marvel at the hundreds of times I've answered it before...)

It's freaking me out a bit to be "home." It's a very different life. I think it's called reality.

We'll talk soon. And my apologies to those of you that bought tickets to see us. We'll see you all soon enough.
