The infamously fierce, feminist pioneers of American grunge punk came back into the spotlight when they announced their documentary film, L7: Pretend We’re Dead, fully funded by fans worldwide via Kickstarter. Often credited as a leading force behind the grunge movement of the late ‘80s and for their influence on riot grrrl bands of the early ‘90s, the reaction to the announcement was far more electric than they could have expected, and lead to a widely anticipated reunion of the band in its original line-up.
L7 took the stage for the first time in 18 years in May, receiving accolades from Rolling Stone, LA Weekly, and many more. For a taste of their live energy that still radiates to this day, fans can watch the first reunion performance of Shit List at The Echo in Los Angeles via YouTube below.
The band is now set on a North American tour, hitting stages with their high-octane energy from coast to coast – see date below. Be sure to catch L7 in a city near you and additional announcements will be coming soon.
