STORYLINE


On November 13th, Eagles of Death Metal were performing at Paris’ the Bataclan when terrorists opened fire inside the venue. The atrocity was part of a coordinated attack across the city that left 130 dead, 89 of which were inside the Bataclan. Though the band’s merch seller Nick Alexander and Mercury Records staffers were among the victims, the band themselves managed to escape. They released a statement a few days later, but now, the band has spoken publicly about the incident for the first time in an interview with Vice.

Co-founder Jesse Hughes, as well touring members guitarist Eden Galindo, bassist Matt McJunkins, and drummer Julian Dorio, recounted the harrowing incident in excruciating detail. One by one, they discussed their recollections of the tragic events, including Hughes’ encounter with one of the terrorists while searching for his girlfriend. Co-founder Josh Homme, who was not on tour with the band at the time, discussed his initial reaction upon learning the news from half a world away.
