Two days ago I signed up for the L7 mailing list and yesterday I got a link to download their album (legally!) and a promo pic! Today I got an email saying plans for a tour are now officially in place!!! There are only two European dates listed BUT tomorrow additional dates are going to be added. BUT WAIT! There’s more! A kickstart program was just started to raise money for their documentary – L7: Pretend We’re Dead Of course you can check this out for yourself by going to their site.
Anyway, looking to the right side for additional videos I came across L7. I was a fan of their music but over the years they kinda fell off the radar and it makes sense because they went into their hiatus 14 years ago. The first song I ever heard from them was “Pretend That We’re Dead”. I was hooked. I bought their 3rd album Bricks are Heavy and then followed that by buying Hungry for Stink and Smell the Magic! I can’t speak to their first album or the last two, I haven’t heard them or at least I don’t remember if I had. Something I will need to do now. I am excited that they will be touring, we’ll see if this turns into anything. I will be reviewing those albums in upcoming posts so be sure to check in.
That was then, this is now. Apparently there has been a groundswell of activity calling for the band to do another tour. L7 have spoken among themselves and have decided, Yes! They would like to tour, however they are going to need a lot of people to help spread the word. Where do you fit in? Join their mailing list and help spread the word. If you’ve never heard them before you can also listen to their stuff which is streamed off of their website. They are a fun, energetic band and if they pull off a tour, you can thank me later!
