L7 working on new album

Female alternative/punk rock legends L7 have announced that they are in the studio recording their first album in nearly 20 years, planned for release next year via Don Giovanni Records.

The band writes:

“After having an amazingly great experience with our L7 reunion tour in 2015 as well the release of a documentary on our band, “L7: Pretend We’re Dead”, the band felt inspired to do some songwriting and return to the studio once again. The end results were recording the tracks “Dispatch From Mar-a-Lago” and “I Came Back to Bitch”. Our first new tunes in 18 years!

We’ve had such a blast hanging out, writing, and recording with each other again that we decided to keep the ball rolling. More song ideas have been flowing out of us every time we get together and play, so we’ve decided to make a full length album which we will record this year.”

Even though the new record won’t be released until next year, you can pre-order it now via PledgeMusic.

L7 called it quits back in 2001, but reunited 14 years later. Their last full-length record Slap Happy was released in 1999.



L7 to release new single next month

Female alternative/punk rock legends L7 just recently announced that they will be releasing another single, which will follow-up last month’s “Dispatch From Mar-A-Lago“, which was their first song in nearly 20 years. The single currently doesn’t have a name, but it will be released on December 15th.

L7, who broke up back in 2001 but reunited 14 years later, haven’t released a full-length studio album since 1999’s Slap Happy.



L7 release first new material in 19 years with “Dispatch From Mar-A-Lago”

L7 reunited in 2015 and have spent quite a bit of time on the road since then. Back in 2015 vocalist Donita Sparks said the band were only focusing on live shows and were not thinking about writing any new material. Two years later and L7 have just released a new track titled “Dispatch From Mar-A-Lago”. It is the band’s first new material in 19 years! You can check it out here.

The band are also releasing their new documentary “Pretend We’re Dead” on October 13th which includes never-before-seen home movies, previously unseen performance footage and interviews with Garbage’s Shirley Manson, Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Butch Vig, Joan Jett, Lydia Lunch, CSS, Brody Dalle and X singer Exene Cervenka.



Donita Sparks talks about L7 reunion

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.



L7 announce reunion shows and documentary

A month ago, we reported that legendary female-fronted alternative punk act L7 had been teasing plans for a reunion with the original lineup. This time, the band announced that they will be playing their first shows with the original lineup in 19 years at Azkena Rock Festival in Spain on June 19th and Hellfest in France the day after. More shows are expected to be announced soon.

L7 currently have no plans to release new material or embark on a full-scale tour, but they have announced that a kickstarter campaign has been set up for the upcoming documentary L7: Pretend We’re Dead. No release date has been set, but we’ll keep you posted as more details on the documentary come to light.

L7 reunion in the works?

Legendary female-fronted alternative punk act L7 have been teasing plans for a reunion with the original lineup, and are asking people to “like” their Facebook page and sign up to their mailing list in order to spread the word. The band writes:

“Greetings People! We want you to know that the love and support you have shown us here on Facebook this year has taken us all a bit by surprise. What started as a simple band page for us to post some archival photos we had been sifting through for an upcoming L7 documentary has turned into a wellspring of enthusiasm for the band. For this WE THANK YOU!

Many of you have asked when we might return for a reunion. Well, it’s been 14 years since our last show, longer if you consider our original line up. But we (Donita, Suzi, Jennifer, and Dee) are hearing you, we are talking about it, and we kinda agree. Why the hell not?

Here’s the situation…

They say to raise a child it takes a village, well to get interest from promoters for L7 to do reunion shows it’s going to take an ARMY. An army of you all. No joke.

Here’s what we need…

We need your continued enthusiasm, your spreading the word by “Sharing” our posts and getting your friends and enemies to “Like” our page.

First and foremost WE NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESSES at our new website http://l7theband.com/

For those about to rock, WE SALUTE YOU.

Love, L7 xo”
