Seems that the Hole reunion is back on again, according to Paper's new cover story on Courtney Love:

As for a Hole reunion, Love is optimistic that she, Eric Erlandson, Melissa Auf der Maur and Patty Schemel will play in 2015, and she insists that her strained relationship with the band is a thing of the past. “It’s more important for me to act right now than to play rock ‘n’ roll,” she says. “Me and Melissa and Patty and Eric have rehearsed a few times.

Love takes a drag off her cigarette and continues.

"The only person I’m concerned about is Corgan. I’m like, What is your problem?
