Eagles Of Death Metal have described themselves as “proud” and “humbled” after a fan group sent the band a video message of support following last month’s terror attacks in Paris.
90 people were killed during the band’s gig at Paris music venue Le Bataclan on November 13 after terrorists opened fire on civilians.
Following the tragic events, a Queens Of The Stone Age fan group (the band’s frontman Josh Homme plays drums in Eagles Of Death Metal) have sent a video message to the band’s members, featuring fans from all over the world.
In the video, the fans say: “In the devastating wake of the attacks on Paris on humanity and freedom, on our friends, your colleagues and our hearts worldwide, we know you must be hurting beyond comprehension for both those you loved and those who loved you. And in the spirit of our family’s core values we want you to know that you’re not alone — we’re so grateful for all you do, we’re glad you’re OK, we’re so sorry for your loss, but most importantly, we love you too.”
Homme shared the video via Instagram on Monday (December 14), writing: “I think I’m one of the first in our group to see this. I find it difficult to put into words how this video makes me feel. I’m proud to be among you, part of you, one of you. Thank you for this kind & generous gift. It means the world to me. I thank you with everything I have. I am humbled by you. I am in awe of you. What you have done, together? I will never forget this gift of kindness. Thank you.”
