L7’s breakthrough third album, Bricks Are Heavy was released April 14, 1992, on Slash Records! In celebration, the American grunge pioneers have announced the special Bricks Are Heavy 30th anniversary reissue, set to be released September 30th on Licorice Pizza Records.


Originally debuting at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, this special anniversary edition will include all 11 tracks digitally remastered by Howie Weinberg (Ramones, Pixies, Metallica). Produced by Butch Vig (Nirvana, Garbage, Smashing Pumpkins), this limited-edition reissue will be available with special packaged gold and black vinyl. As the band’s vocalist/guitarist Donita Sparks states, “After all these years, 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.” Never a band known to wait for anyone, let alone the suits, to validate them, Donita continues, “so we thought to hell with it, we are declaring ourselves Gold and making our own gold records. Get ‘em while they are hot.”
