L7 Announces 'Cooler Than Mars' Limited Edition Flexi Disc & Digital Single

Jun 20, 2023

The single is due out on September 12.


L7 have launched a pre-order for their forthcoming limited edition “Cooler Than Mars” 4-pack flexi disc single due out on September 12.

This keepsake will be the song’s only physical release and strictly limited to a run of 1000 and features specialty artwork of the band members on flexible vinyl. The song will also be made available as a digital single that day.

In addition to being a vibrant art piece, everyone who purchases the 4 pack will receive a free month’s subscription to the Official L7 Fan Club due to launch Oct 1. Members will enjoy exclusive content, ephemera, behind the scenes video of the band on tour, monthly Q&As and more.

It’ll also kick off with a contest, calling for fan photo submissions with their flexi discs. All will be featured in the first month’s launch when the band will also choose one winner to receive a limited edition signed skate deck in collaboration with GIRL Skateboards and VIP Guest list for 2 to any show, anywhere in the world, they play in 2023-2024!

L7 will kick off the “IN YOUR SPACE” US tour on September 14, which includes stops at Louder Than Life and Aftershock festivals. Following their blistering performance at Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas and their highly successful 2022 Bricks Are Heavy 30th Anniversary tour, the band is excited to tear it up at some intimate stages for a rib-rattling, IN YOUR FACE night of rock & roll.

The “Cooler Than Mars” 4-pack flexi disc single will also be included as part of a 15 capacity/show L7 Experience VIP tour package, which also includes the Fan Club subscription, VIP access to soundcheck for 1 full song, photo op, early re-entry and early access to merch.

“The energy and vibe that smaller venues allow is something that we always want to stay connected to,” Donita Sparks shares, “and with a new single coming soon, we can’t wait to see our crowd up close and in the flesh.”

The track is the latest offering from The Paper Kites’ upcoming album ‘At The Roadhouse,' which they recorded live in the Australian wilderness while hand-converting an old gold-mining supply shop into the music venue of their dreams. Watch the band perform 'June's Stolen Car' live, during an unannounced and unadvertised residency at The Roadhouse.

After their last single ‘Black Lotus’, the Sons began working on their follow up. Sample inspired, this latest single is a personal track about a new relationship crossing over into something more serious. The band mixed and mastered the song themselves, with assistance from Maze Studios in Atlanta.

As a composer he has written and recorded work for ensembles including The Knights, A Far Cry string orchestra, and Brooklyn Rider string quartet. As a string arranger he has worked with Rachel Grimes, Helios, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, John Congleton, This Will Destroy You, Meshell Ndegeocello, and other artists at the boundaries of popular music.

The track is accompanied by a video created by visual artist Silas Orion. With wistful yet downtrodden animations, Orion extends the song’s themes of isolation. As he puts it, “The vision I got initially from the song was someone longing to go back to their childhood. They miss the people, the feelings, and being a kid.
