Group says decision was out of their control.
US rock band L7 have officially announced they will not be performing at Soundwave 2016, amidst speculation that next year's festival is in serious jeopardy.
Taking to their official Facebook page earlier today the band said, "Due to circumstances beyond our control, L7 will not be performing at this year's Soundwave Festival."
"Believe us when we say that we are as disappointed as you are. We will try our damnedest to get to you in 2016, maybe even club shows as many of you have requested."
