But then it all started to slip away, as Ms. Love's abuse of cocaine and prescription pills took a toll. She became a tabloid regular, famous for behavior like flashing her breasts at David Letterman. It was hard to imagine her ever being taken seriously again. "I have lived the worst parts of my life in public," she said earnestly, "and now my band and I have made a relevant record."

"I went all in," she added. "I bet the farm on this record, which is dangerous, but great in a way, because when you do that, you have nowhere else to go. There is no Plan B."

The challenge is to make the quality of the music eclipse Ms. Love's tabloid celebrity, said David Massey, the president of Mercury. The label gave Ms. Love a multi-album deal just four months ago, before the recording was finished. "The decision to sign the band was entirely music driven," he said. "It's now become such a complete, great record that I'm blown away. One thing that impressed me when I got to know Courtney were her lyrics and ideas. Nobody else is doing such raw, truthful music." [NY Times]

Hole kicked off the initial four-date US leg of their tour in LA on Thursday (4/22). Coming up, they play two nights at Terminal 5 on April 27th and 28th. Tickets to both NYC shows are still/back on sale at the moment.

Before those, there will be an acoustic in-store performance at the Best Buy Union Square on Monday, April 26th at midnight (aka when you can buy Hole's new album, Nobody's Daughter, which comes out April 27th). Details on that are below.

The band then heads to Europe before returning to the US for more shows this June. One of those will be a Friday, June 25th gig at NJ's Wellmont Theatre. Tickets go on sale at noon.

The picture above and more below are from the group's appearance at Spin day party at SXSW at Stubb's on March 19th. There are also pics of the other bands that played that show - Rogue Wave, Fucked Up, Miike Snow and Sharon Jones. Those, with the setlist, all tour dates and a teaser video for the record are below...

"Hey let's go to Best Buy to hear some raw truthful music"

corporate culture just gets worse and worse

Bashing NJ is ignorant. Bashing Hole is redundant. Its a nice day out.

That's Courtney Michelle to all you haters. Can't wait for the T5 show. One of the last great Rock Stars standing.

"standing" is relative term...

Ah Courtney... such an easy target... yet so deserving of people's disdain..

wonder whats its like to sell your dead husbands teenage diary or sell the movie rights to his story when he clearly wouldve approved of both as he loved all the attention he was getting.

its nice to see jesse camp, former mtv vj reappearing as holes guitar player

also the new rogue wave is TERRIBLE

How appropriate that Hole would be on the same bill as a band called Fucked Up. Whomever booked that SXSW show has a pretty good sense of humor.
