Eagles of Death Metal have announced a new documentary that chronicles the events surrounding the tragic Bataclan terror attacks in Paris, France on November 13th of last year. Titled Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends), the film will premiere on HBO in February of 2017.
The documentary is directed by Colin Hanks and features original music from longtime Queens of the Stone Age contributor Alain Johannes. It will focus around the Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme's relationship with one another, and their fans. It will also have footage from Eagles of Death Metals return to Paris earlier this year when they performed with U2.
The documentary is being funded by Live Nation Productions. Loudwire reports that, "the film is not political", and Hanks "agreed to work on the film to help spread the message about having the strength to overcome the terrorist action."
This month, The Bataclan will host its first shows since last year's attack. Peter Doherty of The Libertines, an artist who has a well documented relationship with the city of Paris, will be the first artist to perform in the newly reopened venue on November 16th.
