The pioneering, two-man band -- front man Scott Lucas covers both guitar and bass through an extra pick up in his guitar while drummer Ryan Harding pounds out the rest of the sound -- has released seven studio albums, a live album, and a bunch of EPs. Harding joined Local H in November 2013 and fit right in. The re-vamped line-up has written several new songs, which they’ve been testing out live to great response from the band’s incredibly loyal fans. In between stints on the road this year, they are recording a string of singles, a move that breaks away from their usual concept album approach. They are currently touring in support of Harding’s first recording with the band: a heavy, rocking reinterpretation of Lorde’s “Team,” the first track from their forthcoming EP, Local H’s Awesome Mixtape #2 . The band’s most recent album, Hallelujah! I’m a Bum (Slimstyle 2012), an epic double-album about the deeply divided political climate that exists in the U.S., has a dog theme running throughout, making it a fitting companion to the band’s widely praised 1998 concept album Pack Up the Cats , which earned a spot in SPIN magazine’s top 20 albums of that year. Local H was named “Chicagoans of the Year” by the Chicago Tribune for their 2008 break-up album, 12 Angry Months , more that a decade after their breakthrough hit “Bound for the Floor” ruled the Modern Rock charts. Alright Junior Alright Junior is a raw, genuine modern rock trio who has a desire to communicate their collective internal focus. Playing hundreds and hundreds of shows since 2006, touring a vast amount of area in the USA, Alright Junior is keen on constantly being on the go, as this band’s live show is what defines them. This musical endeavor has led Alright Junior to share the stage with Incubus, Cake, Circa Survive, Local H, Flogging Molly, Civil Twilight, Maps & Atlases, Sponge, Our Lady Peace, 10 Years, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Young the Giant, The Ataris, The Head and The Heart, KONGOS, Bear Hands and more. The explosive, impulsive, and intense mindset of Jace Miller, mixed with the creative efficiency of Mike Fraclose and Rob Perry, make for an electric mixture of rock, with passionately haunting lyrics, infectious riffs and stunning energy. "Philadelphia's own Alright Junior has been one of my favorite locals for years now." - Wendy Rollins, Assistant Program Director at Radio 104.5 WRFF "Alright Junior...this is like Philadelphia's finest right here. It is such a treat getting to see these guys live. They're a talented band with HUGE stage presence. Not to mention they have addicting little songs, too." - Jessie Sabella, On-Air Personality at Radio 104.5 WRFF “They have endurance, no doubt, extolling their engendered appreciation for the last “good” era of rock music with all the spasmodic moves of an undomesticated bronco” - Origivation Magazine (That Mag) "I would describe Alright Junior as beautiful melodies, mixed with thought provoking lyrics, tied together by the threads of tangled guitars being dragged about by the rhythms of an incendiary drummer." - Philly Rock Blog “..Alright Junior is a must add to your collection." - Campus Philly “Alright Junior offer beautifully-arranged frenetic rock songs, doused with passion and finished off with a heavy dose of head thrashing. Lead singer Jace Miller is a born performer, and gestures frantically, grabs the microphone for dear life, and at one point even dives into the audience, almost knocking over an unsuspecting spectator. The entire band is all over the stage, thrashing harder than any band I’ve seen. I’m struck by the comparison of children on a Moonbounce.” - Philly.com *Keep in the loop @ www.northstarbar.com
