“Our split with Wayne is completely amicable and we wish him luck in his future endeavors,” read a statement from the band. “Over the past year, it became obvious that Wayne was moving in a different direction than the rest of the band, and in the past few months it became extremely apparent that it was time for him to move on.

“We’re very excited to have our old friend Brian on board to keep the insanity alive, and we feel that this is the beginning of a beautiful and disgusting relationship. Get ready for American Head Charge Version 3.0.”

The band’s tour is set to kick off April 10 with Gravity Kills, Kittie and Rammstein trading around support slots. The band hops onboard the Ozzfest at the end of May while the tour is making its European rounds.
