Courtney Love has reunited the classic line-up of Hole.

Love has joined forces with guitar player Eric Erlandson, bassist Melissa Auf der Maur and drummer Patty Schemel, telling The Quietus: "I 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."

Last year, Love posted a photo onto her Facebook page which hinted at a possible Hole reunion. The photo, which was posted over the Christmas period on December 28, featured the singer happily embracing Erlandson alongside the caption, "And this just happened.... @eric_erlandson @maindepowr @LouiseMensch @xMAdMx 2014 going to be a very interesting year xc". @MAdMx is the Twitter handle for bassist Melissa Auf der Maur, while @maindepowr is the group's manager Peter Mensch.

Hole formed in 1989 but their most famous line-up hadn't played together since 1998 when they released 'Celebrity Skin'. Following Schemel’s departure that year, Auf Der Maur left in 1999 to join the Smashing Pumpkins, while the group disbanded entirely three years later. Love is currently gearing up to release the single 'Wedding Day' and will tour the UK this May.
