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 broke up in 2001 after six albums, and the original lineup last performed together in 1996, when bassist Jennifer Finch left the band.
