L7 are teasing a possible reunion tour if they get enough support from their fans. They’re asking people to like their Facebook page and sign up for their mailing list in order to spread the word. The American grunge group went on an indefinite hiatus in 2001, and their original lineup hasn’t been together since 1996. All four of the original lineup are ready and willing to get back together for some shows: “But we (Donita, Suzi, Jennifer, and Dee) are hearing you, we are talking about it, and we kinda agree. Why the hell not?” The band started their Facebook page last year to post archival photos and footage unearthed during the production of a forthcoming documentary about the band being put together by co-founder Donita Sparks, and were pleased with the response that they got. Read the full message from the band below.
ATTENTION! A personal message from the band:
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 websitehttp://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
