What more is there to say about L7? They are back and they are kicking ass.

After a couple singles on Don Giovanni L7 is back with their first full length album since the nineties. Scatter The Rats will be out May 3 on Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records.
Donita Sparks says, “When we decided to make a new record, Joan was there for us as the good friend she has always been. So great to stomp into Blackheart Records with her at the helm. We’re very excited to work with Joan and the entire Blackheart family. Just imagine the family dinners!”
“Burn Baby” has a bit of that classic “Pretend You’re Dead” riffology and the notorious L7 bad attitude.
I think you’re a fraud
And you know I’m a fake
But at the end of the day, we all burn at the stake.

Single out now on Don Giovanni.
L7 is back! I had the chance to see them back in college when they played Club Soda in Kalamazoo, but for some reason I didn’t go. It was a Tuesday night and I wasn’t really familiar with their music, but I knew they were important. My pal who turned me on to Paul’s Boutique and suede Pumas told me about it so I should’ve gone. About six months later they released Bricks Are Heavy and had a college radio smash hit with “Pretend You’re Dead” and I realized my mistake. Live and learn.
And now they’re back. Donita Sparks told Rolling Stone the new song is “about greedy fucks throwing the word ‘rock star’ around because someone made a huge profit on somebody else’s back… Do not degrade the word ‘rock star.’ That’s what I find grotesque – because creative people, caregivers, civil servants – those are the people who are contributing to society… Capitalist motherfuckers are just making money off of polluting things and ruining neighborhoods. Everything is going to shit.”
Sock it to the man!
