Alt-rock duo Local H have shared the live video for their recently released banger "Hold That Thought." Of that video, Scott Lucas says, "Ryan got a GoPro for Christmas, so we decided to put it to use. It’s a pretty good video representation of what that tour with Soul Asylum was like. The decision to start dressing like WHAM! and wear those ‘CHOOSE LIFE’ shirts seemed like a pretty obvious idea to me —our new record is called “LIFERS”— but I’m not sure people got it. I think some people thought we were making some kind of a pro-life statement. We were NOT making a pro-life statement."
"Hold That Thought" -- is a exuberant, riotous track which revamps classic rock tones with the band's signature style. The offering is the third single off of their most ambitious and exciting album to date, LIFERS, due April 10th via AntiFragile Music.
On the track Lucas candidly divulges: "I was getting into that first Love record and thinking how great it would be to cover 'My Little Red Book'. Of course, then I realized it WAS a cover — and that it had been covered many, many times. So what choice did I have? I had to rip it off."
"At first, we were worried that it was too bouncy. Too poppy. But then we wondered if a younger band — like Twin Peaks, for example — would give two fucks about something like that. Pretty quickly, we decided to get over ourselves."
Featuring contributions by an array of respected friends and guests —including Juliana Hatfield, John McCauley of Deer Tick, and legendary rock engineer Steve Albini— LIFERS is the first album from Local H in five years, and the release coincides with the group’s 30 year anniversary (and our collective doom).
