Eagles of Death Metal have recently done an interview with VICE regarding the devastating attack at the Bataclan venue in Paris.

The emotional band have come together to talk about the Friday 13th gig which was almost two weeks ago now, showing their support and dedication to their fans.

Through the 30 minute interview with Vice’s Shane Smith the lads tell the heartbreaking story of what unfolded that evening. Jesse Hughes has stated that he wants to return to the venue and be the first band to play when it opens back up, “Our friends went their to see rock and roll and died, I wanna go back there and live”. It is clear the band is still shock up, as anyone would be, however they are extremely passionate to help anyone who was involved.

EoDM have started raising money for any victims involved in the terrorist attack, they have recently covered Duran Duran’s ‘Save A Prayer’ and all proceeds will be donated to charities to help the victims.

If you wish to make a donation towards the crisis visit the French Red Cross website or the Sweet Stuff Foundation.
