Details

Local H are digging in to their back catalog and releasing their breakthrough album As Good As Dead on 180 gram vinyl via srcvinyl. This double LP re-issue marks the first time that the album will ever be available in this format. Local H will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their sophomore album by playing As Good As Dead in its entirety during this their spring 2016 tour. The two-man band will first play a short set of songs culled from last year’s widely praised album, Hey, Killer, along with music from their other six studio albums and EPs. After a brief intermission, they will return to the stage and play As Good As Dead from start to finish. There will be no opening act.

As Good As Dead, Local H’s second full-length album, was produced by Steven Haigler (Quicksand, Pixies) and was originally released on April, 16, 1996 on Island Records on CD and cassette. The record was the band’s first foray into making a concept album and is centered around life in a dead-end, small town.

“...As Good As Dead is an underrated gem of '90s rock, filled with smart, insightful lyrics about the no-hope slacker life and brawny, fuzz-pedal heavy riffs...” - Michael Tedder, Paper Magazine 1/25/16

As Good As Dead spawned four modern rock radio hits including the above-referenced “Eddie Vedder,” “Fritz’s Corner,” “High-Fivin’ MF” and “that copacetic song” -- “Bound for the Floor,” a track that remains a staple on alternative radio station playlists around the the country two decades later. The band made videos for each of the singles. Watch them here: http://www.vevo.com/artist/local-h and here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHnwEPaDHXE
