Band performed the 'Zipper Down' track last night (April 14)
Eagles Of Death Metal appeared on US TV’s ‘Conan’ last night (April 14), performing ‘Silverlake (K.S.O.F.M.)’, taken from their recent album ‘Zipper Down’. Scroll down to watch.
Jesse Hughes and the rest of the band took to the ‘Late Night with Conan O’Brien’ stage to perform the track, which – as the lyrics state – is a swipe at the world’s “real cool kids”, and featured on their latest record that saw release last October.
Eagles of Death Metal are set to begin touring North America later this month (April), before returning to Europe in August for a string of dates that include Reading & Leeds Festival, Pukkelpop and Rock En Seine.
The band made their live return in February, three months after terrorists targeted their show at the Le Bataclan theatre in Paris, where 89 people were killed at the band’s gig. On their return they performed in the French capital for a concert at the Olympia venue and around 900 survivors of the Bataclan terror attack were present, having been invited by the band to attend the gig for free.
Last month (March) Jesse Hughes had to backtrack on comments he made about the Paris attacks, after alleging that security guards at the Bataclan venue had prior knowledge of what was going to happen.
Yesterday the owners of Le Bataclan venue also announced that it will reopen later this year, with The Libertines frontman Pete Doherty booked for one of the first shows in the relaunched venue.
