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.
UPDATE – Anche Matt McJunkins rompe il silenzio:
Love you guys! And to everyone who’s reached out and offered help, sent us thoughts, love, and their prayers, I will always be thankful for that. It’s meant so much through this chaos. I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful we are for your support. Much love.
* Parlano anche i White Miles che al Bataclan erano band d’apertura.
Due to the numerous request by national as well as international news agencies after the terror attack in Paris, we would like to issue the following, short statement.
We are back home since last Sunday, but would like to abstain from further interviews in public concerning the terror attack on the concert hall Bataclan at the moment. We are in good health, though the events are still too close, the impressions too touching. A member of our crew, who sold merchandise articles, was shot and killed. A good friend of ours has been shot, but blessedly he is on the way to recovery. It’s difficult for us to come to terms with the terrible incident.
We are happy, but miserable at the same time. Happy, because we may be within our family circles, who immensely help us to feel safe again; miserable, because we know that many families have to mourn since the weekend.
It goes without saying that our thoughts are with all victims and their relatives.
Our live concerts with the Eagles of Death Metal are cancelled, as well as our headliner shows in Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. Our show in Innsbruck on December 17th will be played in rememberance of our lost friend Nick Alexander.“
We play rock´n roll, this is what we do and this will never change!
UPDATE – Scrive anche Brody Dalle (la signora Homme):
My heart aches for the people who were murdered at the EODM show. It aches for the families who are left with the heart breaking grief and the loss of their loved ones. It aches for the innocent lives taken around our world and anyone affected by these Incomprehensible acts of hate. Love is the only salve. Long live France, Long live Freedom ,Long live music and Long live Love.
