L7 played their last show with the original lineup in 1996 and disbanded 5 years later. Check out the official statement below, leave your e-mail at this location and like their official Facebook profile to support the reunion project.
Here’s the official announcement:
“Greetings People! We want you to know that the love and support you have shown us here on Facebook this year has taken us all a bit by surprise. What started as a simple band page for us to post some archival photos we had been sifting through for an upcoming L7 documentary has turned into a wellspring of enthusiasm for the band. For this WE THANK YOU!
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?
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.
First and foremost WE NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESSES at our new website http://l7theband.com/
We need to reach you all directly. No spam, no problem.
Let’s show ‘em all! Your love and support will make this happen!
For those about to rock, WE SALUTE YOU.
Love, L7 xo”

Their music has also been featured in numerous film soundtracks (“Natural Born Killers”) and video games (Rock Band 2)
L7 have toured the world over in small clubs, concert halls, and large festivals. They also starred in John Water’s 1994’s “Serial Mom,” and a rockumentary “The Beauty Process” directed by Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic.
