The 20th-anniversary edition double vinyl is packaged in a gorgeous gatefold jacket with new artwork and contains the never-before-heard “Jack Douglas” mixes on Side D!  Additionally a special VHS pressing of Local H’s There Went The Zoo: Live @ The Vic 5/4/02 will be made available in limited quantities. Pre-Orders for all formats are available HERE.

Additionally the band is kicking off their Here Comes the Zoo Tour this weekend, in celebration of the the record that came out two decades ago this year. Watch a live video of “Hands on the Bible” from There Went the Zoo filmed 20 years ago at this location.

Speaking on the 20th anniversary of said album, guitarist Scott Lucas wrote:

“In a lot of ways, this was the toughest record we ever had to make. We were at a real turning and it wasn’t just a record that would determine the future of the band — it was the record that would determine whether or not Local H was going to even have a future.

We had just worked with Roy Thomas Baker on PACK UP THE CATS — so getting another producing legend was not in the plan. Then we found out Jack Douglas was interested. So what could we do? He’s the man. We had no choice but to go with him.”

Local H remain as prolific and hungry as ever three decades into their perennially loud career. Shortly after the release of their critically acclaimed, Steve Albini produced album Lifers in 2020, the world changed forever with the onset of the global pandemic. After facing tour cancellations around the world, Local H became one of a handful of trailblazing acts to formulate and embrace the drive-in experience, producing multiple sold out shows across the midwest, in addition to their massively successful live concert events streamed from their rehearsal space and a brand new mixtape of cover songs recorded during the pandemic entitled Local H’s Awesome Quarantine Mixtape #3.
