L7 New Zealand Shows Announced For May 2020

C.C. / Friday 29th November, 2019 9:00AM

US grunge rock icons L7 are journeying to Aotearoa in May 2020 to treat local fans to two electrifying headline events, taking place at Wellington's San Fran and Auckland's Galatos. Formed in Los Angeles back in 1985, L7 co-founders Suzi Gardner, Donita Sparks and Jennifer Finch are still charging hard with the band alongside veteran drummer Demetra Plakas, who joined up in 1990. A ubiquitous pop cultural presence in the nineties, L7's killer anthems from such classic long players as Bricks Are Heavy (1992) and Hungry for Stink (1994) ruled the airwaves, soundtracking era-defining films Natural Born Killers, Tank Girl and John Waters' Serial Mom. Armed with their brand new record Scatter The Rats, you better batten down the hatches for L7 this coming May...

Press release:

Grunge rock legends, L7 are set to unleash their live force when they return to Australia and New Zealand in May 2020!

Unmistakable in their own unique sound, L7 pioneered the grunge movement with their furious music and feminist ideals. Following their breakthrough 1992 album Bricks Are Heavy, L7 became one of the most highly-regarded grunge acts of the era with hits like "Pretend We're Dead” and “Shitlist”, while their live sets were infamous, fuelled by high-energy, slamming, dancing and stage-diving.

L7 make their comeback to Australia and New Zealand May 2020, gracing Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Wellington and Auckland stages with a snarl, a wink and a new album Scatter The Rats in tow.

On L7’s new album Scatter The Rats they remain a raucous, subversive, and vital voice in rock. Back with their trademark distorted, heavy riffs, headbanging rhythms and indelible melodies, L7 are taking on society’s biggest dickheads, the fakers and liars, and everyone who doubted them.

No one collective has rocked harder and rejected cultural conformity with more of an edge than the combined forces of Donita Sparks, Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch and Demetra "Dee" Plakas. With a career, highlighted by healthy activism and a revolutionary spark, rock music can’t escape the influence of L7.

L7 are raw, chaotic and enduring pillars of rock music - catch their ferociousness live when they return to Australia and New Zealand in May 2020!
