Give Valentine's Day The Middle Finger With This Unreleased Local H Song

Local H

We've got a musical present relatable to everyone who's ever been single on Valentine's Day.

Local H shared their unreleased Million Yen demo version of “Lovey Dovey," a song originally released on their 1996 album As Good As Dead, with us ahead of Valentine's Day. Whether you're a lover or a hater of the holiday, we think the song's sentiment has resonated with everyone at one time or another.

Local H frontman Scott Lucas told us, "Valentine’s Day is the best day for some and the worst for others. It’s the same way with love songs. If you’re in love, you probably turn them up and sing along at the top of your lungs. If you’re not—you can’t turn that shit off fast enough."

The track above will be part of a 20-year anniversary vinyl re-issue of As Good As Dead, out on April 15. The LP will come along with a code for digital downloads of demos and unreleased material from that era.

The band is celebrating the re-release with two shows at The Metro on April 15 (18 and above) and April 16 (all ages) where they'll perform their breakthrough album in its entirety during a two night residency there.

Local H is also offering a pass to both nights on eBay as part of a charity auction in support of Foundations Of Music, formerly known as Rock For Kids. This pass will also include admission to a private acoustic show in Metro's upper theater. (You didn't know there was another floor in Metro? Now's your chance to see it!)
