L7 Cancel Australian Tour Due To “Family Health Emergency”

Former Soundwave 2016 act L7 have postponed their upcoming Australian tour, scheduled to kick off in May, citing a “family health emergency of a private, non-trivial nature”.

The ’90s grunge legends were due to return to Australia for the first time since reuniting in 2014, but have now postponed all upcoming shows, including a stint at South By Southwest to deal with the family emergency.

“Although some of the shows were just very recently announced, LIFE HAPPENS and when it does you have to step up and take care of business for the ones you love,” explain the band in a statement.

They have also vowed that they will return, postponing the dates for later in 2016. “We plan to see you in 2016, just a few more months down the line.”

Tour promoters seem to have moved quickly, rescheduling the shows for October 2016. Catch those below.

L7 released six albums throughout their decade-long career but called it a day in 1999 following their final record Slap-Happy. In 2014 founding members Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner reunited along with Jennifer Finch and Demetra Plakas.

A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

L7 regret to announce that due to a family health emergency of a private, non-trivial nature, we will have to postpone our upcoming U.S. and Australian tour dates. Although some of the shows were just very recently announced, LIFE HAPPENS and when it does you have to step up and take care of business for the ones you love.

Speaking of some other ones we love (YOU) … this is just a postponement. We plan to see you in 2016, just a few more months down the line. In the meantime, stay tuned here. We will continue to post fun stuff and read your beautiful and sometimes hilarious comments.

Thanks for your understanding! With much love and appreciation,

L Fuckin’ 7
