Courtney Love has elected to retire the Hole moniker for her up and coming tour, electing instead to tour under her own name. As NME reports, Love will play seven East Coast dates this June and is planning to release a new single in the near future.
The singer had fueled speculation that she was retiring the Hole name in 2010 when she posted a tweet which simply read "Hole is Dead." In 2012, However, the singer briefly reunited with the band's classic lineup of guitar player Eric Erlandson, bass player Melissa Auf Der Maur and drummer Patty Schemel at the after party of a documentary made about the drummer.
Love recently spoke to Wonderland about her new material, claiming that she would be releasing new singles. However, at the time of writing, these songs have yet to materialize:
"I have two A-sides coming out in mid-April... I had six songs, but I decided to pick the two excellent songs instead of four really good songs and two excellent songs.
"I keep writing about California so I just finally called a song straight up f--king 'California.' Not even Malibu, which I still don't have the keys to the city and I'm really pissed... It's like when Billy Corgan told me he was calling a song 'Tonight, Tonight.' I was like, 'If that song isn't the best f--king song I've ever heard, you will be carted out of town on a cross.' You don't call a song 'Tonight, Tonight' or 'California' unless you know it's major."
