It was almost exactly a year ago when Paris was brought under fire by terrorists in a series of horrific attacks that really hit close to home for us music fans. On November 13, punters were enjoying themselves at The Bataclan Music Hall watching a gig by Eagles Of Death Metal when extremists opened fire inside the venue, killing 89 people in the process.
Now, the band has announced a new documentary about that fateful night titled Eagles Of Death Metal: Nois Amis (Our Friends).
Directed by Colin Hanks (son of Tom Hanks), the film will look at the events within the band before and after the attacks, as well as document their return to the stage in Paris earlier this year.
The film is also set to provide an in-depth look at the relationship between Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme, as well as explore their connection with their fans and how it has been impacted in the aftermath of the attack.
It’s been a tumultuous year for EoDM since the attacks, with the band being dropped from two festivals in May after controversial comments were made by Hughes towards Muslims surrounding the attacks.
The band have understandably been dealing with considerable mental demons across the past year, evidenced by several emotional interviews since the traumatic event.
Nois Ames will debut on HBO in February of next year.
