Chicago rock band Local H is prepping their new album for exclusive pre-order via direct-to-fan platform PledgeMusic. The pioneering two-man band has been melting faces for over two decades. The current line-up is made up of Scott Lucas on a custom, guitar/bass hybrid and Ryan Harding pounding on drums. Finding mainstream success on their sophomore album ‘As Good as Dead’ in the ’90s, the band has continued to release critically acclaimed albums and tour extensively.

As a new foray for Local H, the band is excited to connect with fans through PledgeMusic’s direct-to-fan platform: “This is a totally new thing for us and we’re very excited to see how it goes. This has been such a great and productive year, and we wanna thank all you for the support.” 5% of the money raised after the goal has been met will be donated to MusiCares, an organization that works to ensure that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical or personal crisis.

With a bevy of incredible exclusives, fans that pledge to the campaign will have access to everything from a Skype guitar lesson with the band, signed guitar pedals and cymbals, a private concert, an opportunity to have Scott Lucas perform a guest guitar solo on a recording, and more. To learn more about the campaign and other exciting exclusives, head over to Local H’s Pledge campaign here.
