In the mid and late-1990s, heavy metal and all of its offshoots (including grunge) was primarily a man’s game. One of the few exceptions to the rule was L7, a fearsome female foursome that shared stages with all of the era’s top acts, rocking stadiums around the world. Perhaps better than any other band of their day, L7 was an almost-perfect hybrid of metal and punk; it made for a sound that was brutal, urgent, and infectious as fuck!
The band recently reunited and have plans to release their first album in two decades, Scatter the Rats, on May 3rd. Now, our friends at Consequence of Sound have dropped tour dates to correspond with the new record’s release!
The Spring jaunt kicks off May 10th in Pomona, California, with further stops including Austin, Dallas, Minneapolis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Vancouver, and Portland. Also on the docket is a “very special intimate show” at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere. Dispersed through the schedule are appearances at Rancid’s The Bash Music & Craft Beer touring festival.
You can check out a full list of tour stops/dates below. After that, you can check out the video for the first single from Scatter the Rats, “Burn Baby”, followed by their classic: “Pretend We’re Dead”!
