Yesterday, we mentioned that Mad Season plans to play their first show in 20 years (albeit, obviously, without key members). Now, another seminal band of the grunge era has announced a full-fledged reunion. L7, who’ve not played since 2001, are planning to get back together in 2015.
On their Facebook page, the band made the following announcement:
ATTENTION! A personal message from the band:
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
We need to reach you all directly. No spam, no problem.
Let’s show ‘em all! Your love and support will make this happen!
For those about to rock, WE SALUTE YOU.
Love, L7 xo
L7 was active from 1985 until 2001, featuring Donita Sparks, Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch, and Demetra “Dee” Plakas. The band was influential in the grunge, punk, and riot grrl scenes, and scored a major hit with “Pretend We’re Dead” from the 1992 album Bricks Are Heavy.
