L7 Announce First New Album In 20 Years

Back in 2015, L7 reunited in conjunction with a documentary, L7: Pretend We’re Dead, that was about the Los Angeles band’s career, and over the last few years they’ve been playing live and releasing a handful of songs, including last fall’s “Dispatch From Mar-a-Lago” and last February’s “I Came Back To Bitch.” Today, they’ve announced that they plan to record a new album later this year, and they’re launching a PledgeMusic campaign to help fund it.

“We’ve had such a blast hanging out, writing, and recording with each other again that we decided to keep the ball rolling,” the band wrote in a statement. “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.”

It’ll be the band’s first album since 1999’s Slap-Happy. The new album is expected out in February of next year, which will mean it’ll be released almost 20 years after their last album. Here’s a trailer:
