Local H Announce ‘Here Comes the Zoo’ 20th Anniversary North American Tour

Iconic rock’n’roll outfit Local H is back with the announcement of the Here Comes The Zoo 20th Anniversary Tour, in celebration of the the record that came out two decades ago this year (released March 2002 via Palm Pictures).

“In a lot of ways, this was the toughest record we ever had to make. We were at a real turning and it wasn’t just a record that would determine the future of the band — it was the record that would determine whether or not Local H was going to even have a future,” says guitarist Scott Lucas.

“We had just worked with Roy Thomas Baker on Pack Up The Cats — so getting another producing legend was not in the plan. Then we found out Jack Douglas was interested. So what could we do? He’s the man. We had no choice but to go with him.”

Local H remain as prolific and hungry as ever three decades into their perennially loud career. Shortly after the release of their critically acclaimed, Steve Albini produced album Lifers in 2020, the world changed forever with the onset of the global pandemic. After facing tour cancellations around the world, Local H became one of a handful of trailblazing acts to formulate and embrace the drive-in experience, producing multiple sold out shows across the midwest, in addition to their massively successful live concert events streamed from their rehearsal space.
