L7 has joined the ranks of other famous groups that originated in the nineties, but they need an army to get the tour started off the ground.
Early in the week, nineties all-girl grunge/metal group L7 announced via their Facebook page that they’re planning on reuniting sometime soon, but they cannot undertake the endeavor alone. Calling out their fans for their support on Facebook, L7 has indicated that they “need an army” to make the reunion happen:
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”
So, there you have it. If you were a fan of the ensemble that featured Donita Sparks, Suzi Gardner, Jennifer Finch, and Dee Plakas, you’ll need to show your support in the biggest way for the reunion to coalesce. The powers of social media will ultimately fuel the reunion that many have been waiting for for nearly fourteen years.
