L7 Announce Reunion Shows, Documentary Kickstarter

As teased last month, Los Angeles grunge group L7 are back, and to announce their reunion they’ve enlisted Rob Zabrecky to star in a playfully eerie clip entitled A Night At The Morgue. In the video, Zabrecky unearths a box of old mementos marked 1985 to 2001 — the band’s active years — and the news of their reunion literally appears in his hands.

The seminal feminist band also announced a few reunion tour dates, with promises of more to be added, and a Kickstarter campaign to fund the extensive documentary L7: Pretend We’re Dead that chronicles the band’s history.

The film is close to finished, but there are a few key parts that still need to be completed. L7 are trying to raise $97,000 to that end. Here’s what funds will pay for:

Since 2013, the filmmakers have spent hundreds of hours digitizing, reviewing, assembling and editing material sourced from numerous origins including VHS, Hi-8, YouTube, Super 8 and TV footage.

It was very important to us and to the band that before we brought this project to you backers, we knew that we had a special film on our hands.

These funds will now allow us to complete the final production process including some key interviews, the licensing of broadcast footage, final editorial, sound mix, sound design and artwork.

So far they’ve announced two tour dates, with promises that more will come tomorrow:

06/19 Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain @ Azkena Rock Festival
06/20 Clisson, France @ Hell Fest
