Courtney Love Reunites with Original Hole Line-Up

Hole fans, it might be time to break out all the grunge because it looks like frontwoman Courtney Love has announced that she is getting the band back together.

But before you think that it would just be a knock-off version of the 90s band, Love has revealed that the line-up will include the original members. Seems like the members which include Love, bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur, guitarist Eric Erlandson and drummer Patty Schemel managed to get their stuff together and put their difference behind them to go on and record a new album.

The band officially disbanded back in 2002, but managed to come back together for a one-off gig in Brooklyn back in 2012. Their last album was 1998’s Celebrity Skin.

In an interview with The Quietus, Love revealed 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.”

Right now, there is no word on whether or not the classic line-up will be joining Love on her upcoming UK tour or if they will help her with the recording of her still-in-the-works studio album. Even if that isn’t the case, some fans can’t help but connect the fact that this “reunion” of sorts is happening right around the time that their breakthrough album, Live Through This, celebrates its 20th anniversary which is this month.

The Eurythmics to Reunite for Beatles Tribute

Sweet dreams are definitely made for fans of the Eurythmics because it has been confirmed that the 80s duo will once again reunite in honor of the Beatles.

The Recording Academy announced today that Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will ‘come together’ as part of The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.

Longtime Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich, who also happens to be the one producing the special thought that the duo would be the perfect candidates to join in on the special event paying tribute to iconic and influential rock band. 

“When it came around to booking this show, what I felt was important was to try and find those artists who not only would be able to interpret Beatles songs, but would also have an … understanding of what they meant,” he revealed in a recent interview.

During the interview, Ehrlich didn’t reveal which Beatles song the Eurythmics would be performing during the special, but he did reveal which songs other performers taking part in the special will perform. John Mayer and Keith Urban will pair up to perform “Don’t Let Me Down,” while Alicia Keys and John Legend will perform a duet version of “Let It Be.” Maroon 5, alongside a dozen other artists are scheduled to perform on the special.

The special will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 27, a day after the Grammy Awards while the special will air on CBS, February 9, exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their U.S. debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Ehrlich also wouldn’t confirm if Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr will attend the special.

So which song do you guys think or hope the Eurythmics will perform during the special?

From First to Last Announce Reunion and Kickstarter Campaign

Looks like From First to Last are in fact reuniting to release a new album. Last week, the band had released a message that something was brewing with them. At the time, the number one prediction was they would be reuniting and it looks like fans were right on the money.

Today, the reunited group released a statement where they explain that they had been working on some new songs and that they would be starting a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their new album. The full statement along with the video they posted can be seen below.

Over the last 4 years since we announced our hiatus, there have always been people asking me when the band is going to come back and release new material. What I didn’t realize until not long ago is that the amount of people asking has been growing significantly each year. All of us have been off doing other things, musical and non-musical, but this is the time. I have reached out to the members of the band, and have heard back from many. What is to come from here is something that no one knows, but I do know this: With your support, an AMAZING record is about to be made. The rest of the guys and I are excited to do something completely and utterly awesome, now more than ever. My goal is to walk away from this thing knowing that I just made the record of my life.

This record will contain 6 – 7 songs and will feature friends, old and new. I, for one, am ready to make some music that sounds like dragons spitting fire all over godzilla, if you know what I mean! I plan on this being the most epic From First To Last record ever made! 

So, if you decide to contribute to this Kickstarter, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for making our dreams possible, for allowing me to create music for over 10 years now, and for showing your love and support through all the ups and downs of this band. I promise, we WILL NOT let you down.

-Matt and FFTL

Now, before we get completely overjoyed about FFTL coming back together, we do have to warn you that there has been no word on whether Sonny Moore, or shall we say Skrillex, will be returning to the line-up, even if just for a little while.
