Chicago’s pioneering alt-rock two-piece band Local H released a video for their latest single “Innocents” today. The video stars Michael Shannon as a mechanic letting off some steam.
The video, directed by Felix Peneiro shows Michael Shannon in a different light. He is known for playing heavies in dramatic features like The Shape of Water or straight-up bad guys like Zod in Man of Steel. But in the music video, Shannon plays an everyday guy looking to party down. He is lead to a club by some creepy looking guys in an alleyway, where he cuts loose, dancing and drinking until he ends up in a smiling pile on the floor.
In 2015, the band released a sold out coffee table book entitled 25 Years of Skin in the Game, celebrating the anniversary of their very first show. This year they released another picture book, The Last Picture Book Outta Zion, which is shipping now. Buy yours here.
Local H just wrapped up a tour with Everclear and Marcy Playground this summer. They hit the road in September on the Pack Up the Cats Tour, celebrating their 1998 concept album.
Local H will descend on The Roxy here in Los Angeles on November 12th. Buy your tickets here.
