Eagles of Death Metal Respond to Paris Attacks: ‘Love Overshadows Evil’.

Eagles of Death Metal, the US band whose audience was massacred in the Paris attacks, on Wednesday called for “love and compassion” and put its shows on hold. Eighty-nine people died in the siege on the Bataclan when terrorists triggered explosives and fired shots, part of the coordinated terror attacks that rocked the French capital on Friday. The band, who are now home safe in California, wrote on their Facebook page that the efforts of police, government officials and the worldwide community prove that “love overshadows evil.” The band also paid respects to their crew member Nick Alexander, who worked on merchandising, as well as their record company’s — Universal Music Group’s Mercury Records — execs, Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser and Manu Perez, who died turing the attacks. More than 80 people were killed and 200 others were injured after three gunmen burst into the Bataclan with automatic weapons and grenades, and took hostages in the middle of the show. The band paid tribute to victims of the attack and said, they were “bonded in grief with the victims, the fans… and all those affected by terrorism”.

The concert venue suffered biggest casualty, with the ISIS gunmen killing 89 people during the gig on Friday, including the band’s merchandise manager Briton Nick Alexander, and three executives from the band’s record label, Universal Music Group. Founded in the late 1990s in Palm Desert, California, by Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme, the band were on a 32-city European tour, with their last stop in Portugal in December. We would like to thank the French police, the FBI, the U.S. and French State Departments, and especially all those at ground zero with us who helped each other as best they could during this unimaginable ordeal, proving once again that love overshadows evil.

The family of Nick Alexander confirmed his death in a statement obtained by The Guardian. “Nick was not just our brother, son and uncle, he was everyone’s best friend — generous, funny and fiercely loyal,” it read. In addition to the Bataclan, gunmen attacked at least two restaurants and the Stade de France. “I was inside the room when several gunmen came in,” Pearce told USA TODAY. “Two or three individuals who weren’t masked held Kalashnikov-type weapons and started shooting blindly into the crowd.
