Courtney Love hints at Hole reunion


Courtney Love has suggested that she is ready to end the Hole hiatus having held discussions on forming a reunion.

Love, who formed the band alongside lead guitarist Eric Erlandson, had somewhat of a revolving door in terms of bassists and drummers but predominantly included Patty Schemel, Kristen Pfaff and Melissa Auf der Maur.

In 2002 Hole announced an indefinite hiatus as members of the band went off to pursue other projects and, eight years later in 2010, the band reformed by Love with completely new members—a satiation which resulted in a controversy as Erlandson claimed that Love had breached a mutual contract.

Despite that, Hole went on to released the album Nobody’s Daughter that year, a record that had originally been created as a Love solo album. A short promotion of that album then resulted in Love retiring the ‘Hole’ band name permanently, opting instead to carry on as a solo artist.

However, in a new interview with The Guardian, Love has revealed that discussions have been held in a bid to bring the band back for a second reform in celebration of Live Through This‘s anniversary: “We are definitely talking about it,” says Love.

She added: “There’s nothing wrong with honouring your past; I’ve just kind of discovered that. If you don’t, people will rewrite history and you will become an inconvenient woman.”

Live Through This, Hole’s second studio album, is planning its 25th anniversary celebrations.
