After three months of radio silence, Local H just posted an update on their site:
“We’ve kept you waiting for four looong years for a new Local H record…. and youâ€™re gonna have to wait just a little longer. Weâ€™re getting closer: tracking was done in January, mixing and mastering will be finished in February. And, we promise itâ€™ll be worth the wait – Sanford Parker (Yakuza, Pelican, Bloodiest) is producing it and he is the bee’s knees.
To tide you over, we humbly offer you – a SPRING TOUR! Come hear songs from the new album, Hallelujah! Iâ€™m A Bum, live in concert – months before you can buy it…(yeah, our timingâ€™s off, once again).
Here are two live recordings of songs off Hallelujah! that the band has already road tested:
