My Morning Jacket performed a cover of Eagles Of Death Metal‘s I Love You All The Time as a tribute to the rock band at their concert in New York City. According to Stereogum, they followed the performance with a minute of silence for the victims of the Paris attacks.
The cover comes in the wake of not only the tragic turn of events during the Eagles of Death Metal show in Paris on November 13 when three gunmen opened fire on their audience, but also after an interview the band conducted with VICE last week. The conversation was intense and full of emotion; their descriptions of their experiences were vivid in hallowing detail. The band put a plea out to the world to say that if anyone covered their song I Love You All The Time, they would donate their side of the royalties to the victims of the shootings, and now it seems My Morning Jacket have heard their call.
They also vowed to play at Le Bataclan theatre again once, which was also mentioned by Julian Dorio on Instagram. ““Our friends went there to see rock and roll and died. I want to go back there and live,” Hughes said.
After the incident, the band said they were “proud to stand together” in a social media post. It’s clear from this tribute that that rest of music industry is standing with them as well.
