L7 is back on the road spreading the fun of being girls across the tundra. They have just released their first album in 20 years, called Scatter the Rats. The record was released on Joan Jett’s Blackhearts records. A video of their featured song, “Burn Baby” is up on YouTube, or you can watch it here.

On Friday, May 3rd, we were treated to a taste of their quirky and feisty finery at their invitation-only record release party. It was just like old times at the Monty Bar. The door girl was Stephanie Mata, who helms the Viper Room, and there were lots of local underground peeps milling about. Bryan Rabin of Cherry, Ginger Coyote of Punk Globe , Keith Morris of the Circle Jerks and Off, Artist Shepard Fairy, Singer Josie Cotton and many more local luminaries were packed in to watch them rock out without their cocks out on a tiny stage. They killed with songs from their greatest hits like “Pretend that You’re Dead” and “Andre” in an amazing full-hour set.

The girls are on tour for 6 weeks as part of The Bash Music & Craft Beer Festival with Rancid. Catch them in your town. Tour dates and album info.
