Courtney Love reunites Hole's 'Celebrity Skin' lineup

Courtney Love reunites Hole's 'Celebrity Skin' lineup

Listen to Hole on iHeartRadio

It turns out Courtney Love really is getting the old gang back together.  Back in December she posted a picture of herself embracing former Hole bandmate Eric Erlandson, along with the cryptic note that "2014 is going to be a very interesting year." 

Now she tells The Quietus that she and Eric are teaming up with bassist Mellissa Auf Der Maur and drummer Patty Schemel to reform Hole's classic Celebrity Skin lineup from the mid-'90s.  Love says the quartet started playing together again just to see how it felt, and apparently it felt right. 

They're now planning to put out a new single called "Wedding Day" in May, and will kick off a short U.K. tour that same month. 

The new Hole track will be this lineup's first new release since 1998's Celebrity Skin album.  At this point there's no mention of any more new music from the group, or any plans to tour in the U.S.
