Hole’s mid-’90s lineup finally reuniting?

Hole‘s Live Through This turned 25 this year and Courtney Love told The Guardian back in May that they were “definitely talking about it” in reference to a band reunion. They appear to be more than talking about it now. As Exclaim! points out, Love posted a now-deleted Instagram picture of a rehearsal with Love, drummer Patty Schemel and bassist Melissa Auf der Maur. The caption read “Whose rusty AF? Ladies!!!” with hashtags “#hole #rehearsal # tonight #hollywood.” Missing from the picture, guitarist Eric Erlandson, but Courtney told Pitchfork in 2014, “Eric hasn’t flipped—I jammed with him, he’s still doing his Thurston-crazy tunings, still corresponding with Kevin Shields. We all get along great. There are bands who reunite and hate each others’ guts.” You can see a screencap of the rehearsal via Twitter:

Uproxx, meanwhile, notes that Courtney Love also wrote more about the rehearsals in a reply to a comment on the Instagram, saying “ah! We r so rusty. Just finding our way through songs n songs we like n riffs seeing what’s what! It’s cool. Af nice to be together”:

Auf der Maur helped organize a benefit honoring Courtney Love at Basilica Hudson in 2018 where they performed together. Courtney Love last performed as Hole back in 2010 and performed with the original lineup of the band, including Eric Erlandson, in NYC back in 2012 at an afterparty for documentary Hit So Hard. There was talk of a reunion in 2014 which never materialized.
