November 19th, 2015
Following the terrible and tragic events that took place in Paris last week (November 13th 2015), Californian rockers Eagles Of Death Metal, who were performing a sold out headline show at The Bataclan before a group of terrorists entered the venue and began shooting at the audience, have now posted a statement regarding the events that took place. You can read the band’s full statement below:
“While the band is now home safe, we are horrified and still trying to come to terms with what happened in France. Our thoughts and hearts are first and foremost with our brother Nick Alexander, our record company comrades Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez, and all the friends and fans whose lives were taken in Paris, as well as their friends, families, and loved ones.
Although bonded in grief with the victims, the fans, the families, the citizens of Paris, and all those affected by terrorism, we are proud to stand together, with our new family, now united by a common goal of love and compassion.
We would like to thank the French police, the FBI, the U.S. and French State Departments, and especially all those at ground zero with us who helped each other as best they could during this unimaginable ordeal, proving once again that love overshadows evil.
All EODM shows are on hold until further notice.
Vive la musique, vive la liberté, vive la France, and vive EODM.”
The attack that took place in The Bataclan venue left 89 dead, which included the aforementioned people who were associated with the band. Our thoughts and condolences go out to everyone who was affected by the attacks that were co-ordinated and took place throughout Paris.
The band’s latest album, ‘Zipper Down’, is available now through Downtown Recordings.
