Eagles Of Death Metal issue full statement following Paris attacks

After initially declaring themselves safe on the night, Eagles Of Death Metal have now shared their first official statement since a number of fans at their show were sadly killed in Friday's terror attack at Paris' Bataclan venue.

The band's merchandise manager Nick Alexander was one of the 80 victims caught up in the siege at the venue last Friday night, and after five days of silence, the band had the following to say:

“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.”
