Chicago mainstays Local H are back with a double album, titled Hallelujah! I'm A Bum, due out on September 18 via Slimstyle Records. The LP was produced by Sanford Parker and tracked at Engine Studios. You can take a listen to the song "Night Flight to Paris" at the bottom of this post, which is set to footage shot during the recording process. Hallelujah! I'm A Bum serves as Local H's first new material since 2008's 12 Angry Months. In the meantime, guitarist Scott Lucas has been keeping busy with his other project the Married Men.

Local H will be touring in support of the LP this fall, which kicks off with a record release show on September 18 at the Bottom Lounge. Tickets for their hometown show go on sale this Friday (7/13) at noon CST.

    So psyched. Going to hit Seattle and Portland, this time around.

    As an amusing side note, the first time I saw the guys they were opening for STP. One of the most recent times, in NYC, they were playing a double-booked vanue. Local H and all the fans had to leave in time for STP and all the ticketholders for THAT concert to come in.

    Yeah, start in Chicago, and work your way south. St. Louis, Kansas City, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Dallas, AUSTIN, San Antonio, Houston, New Orleans, etc., then work your way back to Chicago. Hope to see you guys!

    Why not making a trip south to Dallas at Trees? We need a Local H fix!!!

    So damn excited. Been excited about every album since the age of 9 when I bought As Good As Dead, never been disappointed.

    I do wish that we were getting the "Terrible Love" cover on this one. I listen to terrible phone recordings of it from the live sets on youtube everyday.

  • Hey kids, no fighting about bands. Lets focus on the awesomeness that is the new album! Cant wait to see them in LA!
