Local H - The Misanthrope

"Hey, Killer" is the eighth studio album by American alternative rock duo LOCAL H, released on April 14, 2015 through G&P Records, the official merchandiser for the band. Unlike previous recordings, "Hey, Killer" is not a conceptual release. The album was released on digital, CD, and vinyl formats. The record marks the first full-length recording to feature Ryan Harding on drums.

Recording for the album was mostly funded by a Pledgemusic campaign started by the band. People who helped donate to the campaign where rewarded with t-shirts, signed copies of the record, and so on. 5% of the money that was donated after the campaign was completed was sent to MusiCares, an organization that helps musicians with financial and personal struggles

LOCAL H is an American grunge duo originally formed by guitarist and vocalist Scott Lucas, bassist Matthew "Matt" Garcia, drummer Joe Daniels, and lead guitarist John Sparkman in Zion, Illinois in 1987. The members all met in high school in 1987 and founded Local H three years later.

After Sparkman's departure in 1991 and Garcia's departure in 1993, LOCAL H signed a record contract with Island Records in 1994, where they would go on to release three albums. They became best known for their radio hit "Bound for the Floor", a single from the 1996 album As Good as Dead which peaked at No. 5 on the US Alternative Billboard Chart. The album As Good As Dead was also certified gold. Daniels was replaced by Brian St. Clair in 1999, and the group has since issued four further albums. Brian St. Clair's last show with Local H was in 2013. In November 2013 Ryan Harding was announced as the new drummer.

According to the band's Twitter account, its name comes from combining two R.E.M. songs: "Oddfellows Local 151" and "Swan Swan H"

Today's tune "The Misanthrope" is taken from the new album "Hey, Killer", released April 14, 2105.
