Grunge firestarters L7 have offered up a new single, "Cooler Than Mars," along with its quirky music video. The single — which is available both digitally and as a limited-edition 1000-run flexi disc — finds the iconic rock band taking on the issue of climate change with their characteristic sense of humor.
Watch and listen above.
L7's Donita Sparks commented: "The song was inspired by the ongoing catastrophic news of climate change, and the strange passions of billionaire space cowboys to explore and exploit the outer limits of our stratosphere. Seems to me such obsessions and resources should be totally focused on healing The Big Blue Marble. I feel like there is nothing 'out there' that is as mind-blowing as the biodiversity of what we have here on Earth. Because we're cooler than Mars, damnit."
In addition to dropping the new single, L7 will kick off the IN YOUR SPACE U.S. tour today in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Check out the L.A. shitlist-makers' full upcoming itinerary below.
