Yesterday they posted a note on Facebook for their fans. The four people mentioned by name below were murdered last Friday.
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.It's worth reading the entire post which also contains comments from several fans in attendance at Bataclan, at least one of whom was wounded in the massacre.
All EODM shows are on hold until further notice.
Vive la musique, vive la liberté, vive la France, and vive EODM.
And here they are at a show this September in Cleveland performing a cover of Duran Duran's 1984 hit Save A Prayer.
UPDATE: The Eagles of Death Metal played in Israel this past July despite an appeal to cancel their visit by the despicable Roger Waters (of Pink Floyd). Water supports the destruction of Israel through his support of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement so hats off to the Eagles for going on with this visit. The Batalcan theater has Jewish ownership and had been the subject of demonstrations by the BDS movement and Muslim groups because it allowed Jewish and Israeli events at the venue.
