Local H Gearing Up For 6 Ways To Sunday Tour

oct 23rd 2001

Local H will go national with songs from their upcoming fourth album on a fall tour that starts November 13 in Seattle.

The Chicago rock duo's Here Comes the Zoo is due February 5. The record was produced by Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith) and features a guest appearance by Queens of the Stone Age singer Josh Homme (see "Queens Of The Stone Age Singer Joins Local H On New Song"). The first single will be "Half Life," according to a Local H publicist. Local H, led by singer/guitarist/bassist Scott Lucas, blend the classic power-pop riffs of Cheap Trick with the feedback-flavored grunge of Nirvana. Here Comes the Zoo is Lucas' first album with drummer Brian St. Clair. Lucas and former drummer Joe Daniels released Pack Up the Cats in 1998 and As Good as Dead, featuring "Bound for the Floor" (a.k.a. "The Keep It Copacetic Song") and "Eddie Vedder," in 1996.

Rock foursome Injected and emo trio Seven Storey will open for Local H on the 6 Ways to Sunday tour, which is named after a lyric in the new cut "What Would You Have Me Do."

Tickets for all of the shows are $6.

Local H will launch another tour in late January, their publicist said.
