American grunge/punk band L7 are talking up their reunion for 2015.
Earlier in the year, the group started a Facebook page to share some old photos and memories but they were inundated with requests for the band to get back together. Those requests have touched the band who now say that they are considering a reunion but they need help to get industry people interested:
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 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
Based on the post, it appears the current lineup of the group is original guitarists Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner, bassist Jennifer Finch and drummer Demetra Plakas.
Sparks and Gardner formed the band in 1985 with Finch joining in 1987 and Plakas in 1988. They recorded six studio albums with the most successful being 1994’s Hungry For Stink (#117 Pop / #2 Heatseekers). Their single Pretend We’re Dead from the album Bricks Are Heavy went to number 8 on the U.S. Alternative chart in 1992.
In 2001 they announced their hiatus telling fans, “L7 are on an indefinite hiatus. We know that’s vague, but that’s just the way it is. The future of the band is a bit up in the air at the moment.”
L7 last toured Australia on the Alternative Nation tour of 1995 where they performed ‘I Love You Suzanne’ with Lou Reed.
