UPDATE (7/24): In an interview with the Philippine Daily EnquirerCourtney Love divulged that a Hole reunion is not going to happen, like, ever. "I don’t want to get on the oldies circuit," she told the publication. "I don’t need to do that for money. I want to put out music that is relevant today. Being one of the last chicks in a rock 'n' roll band is a weird place to be. It's tough to put Hole back together and make sure that it's relevant."

UPDATE: Courtney Love is quelling hopes of a potential Hole reunion just days after stoking the fire. Although the classic lineup has been playing together, she describes the situation as "very frail." Love likened the current situation to this: "We may have made out, but there is no talk of marriage." Let's hope they at least get to third base. 

4/2 Story: Go on, take everything, Hole fans. The band is reuniting with their original lineup.

Courtney Love, alongside bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur, guitarist Eric Erlandson and drummer Patty Schemel have resolved their differences and are working on new material.

After officially disbanding in 2002, Love reformed the classic lineup once before for a one-off gig in Brooklyn in 2012.

Love told the Quietus that she recently "started playing with Patty and Melissa and Eric, just to see how that was. We already played like three or four times in the last week." Whether this means the original lineup will join Love on her upcoming UK tour and/or help record her in-the-works new studio material remains to be seen.

The band's breakthrough album, Live Through This, celebrates its 20th anniversary this month. Perhaps a reunion tour is in the works? We really want you... to do that, Courtney.
