Having recently lived through this (and this and this), former reigning diva of grunge Courtney Love is now geared to shed her celebrity-trainwreck skin and hit Europe next month for a handful of live shows performed with a whole new Hole.
As reported by Prefix, Hole’s upcoming album, Nobody’s Daughter, will be released sometime in early 2010. A very undetailed website that goes by the name of the album has emerged, announcing tickets for three February gigs in London, Milan and Amsterdam.
The website features a graphic of a shattered glass slipper (in keeping with Love’s love of all things perverted fairy tale-ish) but no mention of the band’s name. Hole co-founder and former guitarist Eric Erlandson has hinted since the summer that Love could not form a band under the Hole moniker without his agreement.
New members of Hole-or-whatever include Larrikin Love guitarist Micko Larkin, bassist Shawn Dailey (maybe or maybe not this one?), and drummer Stu Fischer, according to Prefix.
