A Hole Reunion Is Coming In May


I’m probably more excited about this than I should be.

Twelve years after they first disbanded, the members of Hole will reunite to release new music and embark on a short U.K. tour. Courtney Love revealed to The Quietus that she and her “Celebrity Skin”-era bandmates, who played together from 1994 to 1998, will release a new song entitled “Wedding Day” in May. “I started playing with [drummer Patty Schemel] and [bassist Melissa Auf der Maur] and [guitarist Eric Erlandson], just to see how that was,” Love said. “We already played like three or four times in the last week.” Love and the other Hole members have hinted at reunions over the past few years. They appeared together in 2011 at the premiere of “Hit So Hard,” a documentary about Schemel’s life. In a photo posted to Twitter in December, Love promised something “very interesting.”

Say what you want about Courtey Love, like, she might have killed Kurt Cobain and made it look like a suicide, but Live Through This was one of the best albums of the 90s. And if you disagree with me, you’re dumb. I’m sorry that you have to hear it like this. Also, say what you want about heroin, but it has an unblemished track record when it comes to creating great music. Did you know that Katy Perry wrote all her albums completely sober? True story.
