L7 have dropped “I Came Back to Bitch,” a fiery, cowbell-assisted takedown of capitalists and fake rockstars. “It’s about greedy fucks throwing the word ‘rock star’ around because someone made a huge profit on somebody else’s back,” Donita Sparks explained to Rolling Stone. “Do not degrade the word ‘rock star.’ [C]reative 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.”
The grunge icons made a triumphant return last year with the topical “Dispatch From Mar-a-Lago,” their first new music in 18 years. The band is set to take the stage with their new work this April, with a six show U.S. tour. Catch “I Came Back to Bitch” and the band’s tour dates below.
