Grunge icons L7 have announced that they will be returning to Antipodean shores next year for a slew of shows.

The pioneering feminist act will be bringing their blistering new album, Scatter The Rats, to legions of devoted fans. You’ll be able to subvert the establishment to generation-defining tracks like ‘Pretend We’re Dead’ and ‘Shitlist’ and relish in the glory days of grunge.

Formed through the partnership of Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner, the group released six influential records throughout their time, going on to become one of the most highly-regarded grunge acts of the era.

Scatter The Rats marked the bands first new album in twenty years. Released via longtime friend Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records, it was nothing short of a triumph.

“When we decided to make a new record, Joan was there for us as the good friend she has always been,” the group explained in a press release. “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!”

The band will kick off their tour on Wednesday, May 20th at Metro Theatre in Sydney, before conquering Forum in Melbourne on Friday, May 22nd, The Triffid in Brisbane on Saturday, May 23rd, The Gov in Adelaide on Sunday, May 24th, they’ll then cross The Tasman and play a gig at San Fran in Wellington on Wednesday, May 27th and Galatos in Auckland on Thursday, May 28th.
