L7 to Release Their First Album in 20 Years
The grunge vets have launched a PledgeMusic for their first full-length since 1999
Published Apr 09, 2018Taking their reunion one big step forward, L7 have announced their first album in two decades.
Today the reunited grunge vets launched a PledgeMusic campaign with pre-orders for their first album since 1999's Slap-Happy. While details for the comeback album are sparse, it is expected to arrive in February 2019 via Don Giovanni.
A note from L7's PledgeMusic page reads as follows:
After having an amazingly great experience with our L7 reunion tour in 2015 as well the release of a documentary on our band, L7: Pretend We're Dead, the band felt inspired to do some songwriting and return to the studio once again. The end results were recording the tracks "Dispatch From Mar-a-Lago" and "I Came Back to Bitch." Our first new tunes in 18 years!
We've had such a blast hanging out, writing, and recording with each other again that we decided to keep the ball rolling. More song ideas have been flowing out of us every time we get together and play, so we've decided to make a full length album which we will record this year.
