Twelve years after they first disbanded, the members of Hole will reunite to release new music and embark on a short U.K. tour.

Courtney Love revealed to The Quietus that she and her "Celebrity Skin"-era bandmates, who played together from 1994 to 1998, will release a new song entitled "Wedding Day" in May.

"I started playing with [drummer Patty Schemel] and [bassist Melissa Auf der Maur] and [guitarist Eric Erlandson], just to see how that was," Love said. "We already played like three or four times in the last week."

Love and the other Hole members have hinted at reunions over the past few years. They appeared together in 2011 at the premiere of "Hit So Hard," a documentary about Schemel's life. In a photo posted to Twitter in December, Love promised something "very interesting."

Love was the only original Hole member featured on the band's most recent album, 2010's "Nobody's Daughter," which received lukewarm reviews and peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200.

Hole will perform eight shows in England and Scotland:
May 11: London - Sheperds Bush Empire
May 12: London - Sheperds Bush Empire
May 13: Manchester - Manchester Academy
May 15: Glasgow - O2 Academy
May 16: Leeds - O2 Academy
May 18: Birmingham - O2 Academy
May 19: Bristol - O2 Academy
May 20: Nottingham - Rock City

UPDATE: According to Love, the Hole reunion isn't quite locked down just yet. "We may have made out but there is no talk of marriage,” she said to The Telegraph in a new interview. "It's very frail, nothing might happen, and now the band are all flipping out with me."
