Almost two weeks ago, on November 13th 2015, a series of co-ordinated attacks took place across France’s capital city of Paris, one of which took place at the music venue The Bataclan where, at the time, Californian rockers Eagles Of Death Metal were performing a sold out headline show. Midway through their set, a group of terrorists entered the venue and began shooting into the crowd, tragically killing 89 attendees, which included the band’s merchandise manager Nick Alexander, and their record company friends Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez.
Aside from an official statement that the band posted regarding the events that took place (which can be read here), the band have understandbly remained silent. However, the band have now shared their stories and experience of what happened on that night in an in-depth interview with Vice.
You can watch the full interview below. However, please be aware that some people may find the content of the interview upsetting.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to everyone who was affected by the attacks that were co-ordinated and took place throughout Paris.
