Rock fans around the globe have been revelling in the return of L7. Just yesterday, the Los Angeles grunge icons released the new song “Stadium West” from their forthcoming album Scatter the Rats, which will be their first in two decades.
The song casts L7’s signature crawling guitar riffs and call-and-response melodies over a bright drumbeat. Its accompanying video is heavy on glitchy effects, primary colors splitting and tessellating around the city it’s set in.
Scatter the Rats arrives May 3 on Joan Jett’s label Blackheart. Watch the video for “Stadium West” here:
