Eagles Of Death Metal Give First Interview Since Paris Attacks, Vow To Finish Show At Bataclan
The band have spoken out about the friends and fans that they've lost.
Eagles Of Death Metal have given their first interview since the horror of the attacks in Paris earlier this month, after gunmen stormed their gig and opened fire.
Speaking to Vice about the tragic events that killed 89 people at the Bataclan Theatre, the band recount the night that ultimately changed their lives.
"They [fans] were hiding in our dressing room, and the killers were able to get in," Jesse Hughes explains. "They killed all of them, except for a kid who was hiding under my leather jacket."
He continued: "People were playing dead, and they were so scared. A great reason why so many were killed is because so many people wouldn't leave their friends, and so many people put themselves in front of people."
Hughes added that EODM will continue their European tour and hope to play the Bataclan when it re-opens.
"I cannot wait to get back to Paris," he said. "Our friends went there to see rock ‘n’ roll and died, I’m going to go back there and live."
