Local H, the iconic alt-rock duo known for their blistering live shows and pioneering the two- piece band set-up, is atthe top of their game more than two decades after they first burst onto the music scene. Frontman Scott Lucas, whocovers both guitar and bass (through an extra pick up in his guitar), and drummer Ryan Harding have enjoyed aresurgence in recent years, buoyed by global touring along with the release of some of their most critically acclaimedwork to date.

Local H’s first major release was 1995’s Ham Fisted, but it was their follow up album As Good As Dead thatpositioned the band as one of the elites in what was a groundbreaking decade for rock music. With multiple radiohits on the album, “Bound For The Floor” emerged as a generational anthem and remains a staple on playlists aroundthe country over two decades later. Their widely praised 1998 concept album Pack Up the Cats, produced by thelegendary Roy Thomas Baker, solidified Local H as a leader in the genre and the albums that followed were reflective of not only the band’s definitive character, but as well their relentless effort to give their audience as muchof themselves as possible. While recipients of numerous accolades over the years, Local H has always kept the focuson their fans, which can be seen by the awe inspiring and often times daunting tour schedule the band has kept upyear after year.

The last three years have seen a multitude of releases from the band in various forms. In 2015, Local H celebratedthe 25th anniversary of their first show and released a career-spanning coffee table book, “Local H: Twenty-FiveYears of Skin In The Game”. That same year they released Hey, Killer, their eighth full length studio album, to nearunanimous acclaim. In 2016 the band celebrated the 20th anniversary of the release of As Good As Dead with asuccessful three month national headline tour (partnered with their first live Blu-Ray DVD, “Straight Outta Zion”,shot at the Metro in Chicago during a weekend of sold out shows).

2017 was perhaps Local H’s busiest year yet, as the band continued to tour extensively not only as headliners, but onhugely successful tours with The Toadies and Helmet and —perhaps most exciting of all— career highlightperformances on Metallica’s sold out stadium tour. The band also found time to publish another book “The LastPicture Book Outta Zion or: How We Learned To Stop Worrying About Cell Phones And Love The Photos Of JohnOakes”, an intimate behind the scenes portrait of the band shot by photographer John Oakes.
