Courtney Love says she's reforming Hole (kind of? Not really!)
Via U.K. music publication NME, the professional widow and onetime grunge icon announced that her forever-in-the-works Nobody’s Daughter will come out not under her name, but instead under the moniker of Hole, the often-excellent band she disbanded back in 2002.
As Love tells the magazine in print and an accompanying video diary, Daughter — after umpteen scratched songs, producers, and studios — will herald the return of “rock Courtney.” She will be joined, she says, by Hole (and Smashing Pumpkins) alum Melissa Auf der Maur on bass and backing vocals, as well as, well…nobody else from the old lineup, but maybe that is incidental to Rock Courtney?
Either way, Love promises you’ll be seeing the album by late this year or early next, to be followed by a national tour. Watch her Miss-Havisham-takes-the-Sunset-Strip shenanigans below, and tell us if you’re still ready and waiting for Daughter:
