In an interview with i-D, L7 guitarist and vocalist Donita Sparks talked about the band’s reunion and future, where she revealed that they are only focusing on live shows and have no plans to work on their first album since 1999’s Slap-Happy. She explains:
“I hadn’t spoken to some of the band members in 14 years, and when I approached everyone, I said, “Hey, let’s not worry about making a record, do you want to do some shows?” so we’re not focusing on new material. But you never know, we haven’t had a rehearsal yet. It’s strange because this reunion seems to be happening in real time, the media and the public are getting the information as soon as the bandmates are. We haven’t even been in the same room in 18 years. That will happen in early March when we get together and rehearse. It’ll be weird, but in a good way.”
L7 broke up in 2001 after six albums, and the original lineup last performed together in 1996, when bassist Jennifer Finch left the band.
