Twelve Angry Months is a concept album by the alternative rock band Local H. It was released on May 13, 2008 on Shout! Factory. The album is about experiences surrounding a relationship breakup, with each track corresponding to a month in the year after the break-up.[6] The title is an allusion to Twelve Angry Men. The first single is "24 Hour Break-Up Session". The album was scheduled for a UK release on 18 August 2008, however this was delayed for unknown reasons until 25 August 2008.[7] The song 'Blur' is a revised version of a song that appears on the band's EP The '92 Demos.
