L7 are to reform and play a series of European shows this year

90s’ alt-rockers L7 have announced that they will both reform and play a series of European gigs during this year

7 have reformed, with the announcement coupled with the confirmation that they will play a series of European shows this year, with Download festival in Donigton Park, Azenka Rock Festival in Spain and the French festival Hell Fest all set to see performances from the band this June. When speaking on the reunion of the alt-rockers the bands guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Donita Sparks said “It’s going to be a blast playing Download Festival this year. We can’t wait to see all of our maniac rock and roll mates in the UK again. Reunited, and it feels so good! See you there!”

In addition to their reformation L7 have also started a KickStarter fund for the documentary L7: Pretend We’re Dead. A press release for the documentary states, “The film takes viewers on an all access journey into the 1990’s grunge movement that took the world by storm and the band that helped define it as the genre of a generation. Culled from over 100 hours of vintage home movies taken by the band, never before seen performance footage, and candid interviews, L7: Pretend We’re Dead chronicles the early days of the band’s formation in 1985 to their height as the ‘queens of grunge’ and follows a roller coaster ride of triumphs and failures. It offers particularly revelatory insight into the band’s eventual dissolution in 2001.”
