Local H Unveil Heavy New Track, ‘Mansplainer’
On April 14, Local H will release their latest studio effort, Hey, Killer. Before the highly-anticipated disc hits record stores, though, the band has unveiled the hard-hitting new track, “Mansplainer.” You can take it for a spin (and make sure to crank it up to 11) in the audio player below, courtesy of Billboard.
“I was really thinking, ‘Maybe this isn’t so good. Maybe we don’t necessarily need to record this,” Scott Lucas tells Billboard. “We did it anyway, and I still wasn’t too crazy about it. Then I put some slide [guitar] on it, some background vocals, made it more like a psych rock song.”
He goes on, “Once we mixed everything, that was the song I kept listening to more than any of the other songs [on the album], and that was a song a lot of people gravitated towards.”
When Hey, Killer drops, Local H will celebrate with a string of gigs in Chicago, followed by several dates across the U.S., wrapping up on May 23 in De Kalb, Illinois.. Get their full tour itinerary here.
Along with Hey, Killer, Local H are celebrating 25 years as a band in 2015 (and their debut, Ham Fisted, is turning 20 this year).
