Unless you’ve been living under an alt-rock, well, rock… you can’t fail to have noticed that L7 have announced their reunion.
The seminal all-female group will be playing a set at this year’s Download festival at Donington Park in the UK; their first since they split up in 2001.
They also be playing at Azkena Rock Festival in Spain and Hell Fest in France, with more shows to be revealed.
“It’s going to be a blast playing Download Festival this year,” said frontwoman Donita Sparks. “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!”
The band have also begun a Kickstarter campaign to fund a documentary film, L7: Pretend We’re Dead, to be directed by Sarah Price. “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,” reads a press release.
“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.”
