To co-incide with their upcoming Australian shows in May, Los Angeles outfit L7 are to release a new single, which will also feature Joan Jett.

Speaking recently on the Australian Rock Show podcast, guitarist and band co-founder Donita Sparks stated “we’re putting out a single, just for this Australian/New Zealand tour, and side A is L7 covering the Joan Jett song ‘Fake Friends’ – and Joan makes a guest appearance on it – and the B-Side, we actually did a really slow version of ‘Burn Baby’ and it’s called ‘Witchy Burn’, that’s the B-Side of it’.

At this stage no further details of the tour single have been released.

Since reforming in 2014, L7 has performed extensively and last year released their first album in twenty years ‘Scatter the Rats’. ‘Burn Baby’ was the first single lifted off the album. The Joan Jett & The Blackhearts song ‘Fake Friends‘ is included on their 1983 studio release titled  ‘Album’. For forthcoming details on L7’s Australian tour release visit Blackheart Records
