Published Oct 23, 2009Ever since Courtney Love announced that she'd be reforming Hole earlier this year, there has been nothing but conflicting information. First, Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson said that a Hole reunion would be impossible without him. Then, bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur told Exclaim! that the reunion simply wasn't happening.
Now, Prefixmag is reporting that Love has assembled a new band to perform as Hole, with plans to release a new album in 2010. The trail of links leads back to an article written by British newspaper The Sun on October 16. While they don't cite any sources, they claim that a new Hole single will be released in January of 2010, with a new album slated for the middle of the year.
Of course, the article also contains the sentence, "The widow of Kurt Cobain threw herself into Hole after he shot himself dead in 1994," so it's difficult to peg how much thought goes into their editorial content.
It's too bad that Love deleted her bat-shit crazy Twitter account earlier this month, otherwise we might have been able to infer some information from all the barely coherent, rambling tweets.
