L7 say reunion plans are in the works

The punk band took to Facebook to explain they've 'been talking about it'

L7 have said that plans for a band reunion are currently in the works.

The band took to Facebook earlier this month to respond to fan requests, which had asked them to get back together. “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?” commented the group.

They added that continued support of the band’s social media and online presence would help them to get interest from promoters and let them possibly book a comeback tour. They wrote: “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.”

L7 formed in Los Angeles in 1985 and stopped playing live in 2001, announcing an ‘indefinite hiatus’. The group consisted of Donita Sparks, Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch and Demetra Plakas. They released their debut, self-titled album in 1988, following it with 1990’s ‘Smell The Magic’ and 1992’s grunge breakthrough, ‘Bricks Are Heavy’. Their final release was 1999’s ‘Slap-Happy’.
