L7 Announce Bricks Are Heavy 30th Anniversary Tour

“So we thought to hell with it, we are declaring ourselves Gold and making our own gold records. Get ‘em while they are hot," Donita Sparks says.

L7 are celebrating big for the 30th anniversary of Bricks Are Heavy. The band announced a reissue of their third record and a tour of the U.S. throughout October.

On April 14, 1992, Bricks Are Heavy released via Slash Records. The 30th anniversary reissue is slated for release on September 30, which will include all 11 tracks remastered by Howie Weinberg (Ramones, Pixies, Metallica).

“After all these years,” L7’s vocalist and guitarist Donita Sparks says, “we began thinking it is strange that we have never received a proper accounting of actual sales to date for this record. We were so close to Certified Gold 30 years ago, surely we have crossed the line by now.”

Produced by Butch Vig (Nirvana, Garbage, Smashing Pumpkins), the reissue will release via Licorice Pizza Records. It is available for pre-order now.

L7’s Bricks Are Heavy North American fall tour will feature the entire seminal album performed in full for the first time ever, which kicks off October 3 in Nashville. They’ll even include fan favorite “Shitlist.” Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. PST on Friday, April 15 via the band’s website.
