A trailer has been released for a documentary covering the 2015 attacks that took place at the Eagles Of Death Metal Concert in Paris.
The band from California, fronted by eccentric front man Jesse Hughes and also featuring Queens Of The Stone Age singer Josh Homme as a recording member, were playing a gig in the French Capital at the Bataclan theatre when a terrorist gunman attacked the venue, killing 89 people.
The attack on the theatre was one of six attacks that took place that night in Paris, claiming a total of 139 lives.

The documentary called ‘Eagles of Death Metal: Nos amis (our friends)’ details the tragic events that took place on the night of November 13th 2016 and also covers the return concert the band put on three months later in the Paris Olympia to “finish that gig”- as one interviewee in the trailer says. It also focuses on the relationship between Homme and Hughes.
A visibly upset Hughes shown in the trailer, says “everyone face was looking at me; I saw fear take hold of everyone.”
He also adds “I just want to do what I am supposed to do to make sure everyone comes through this okay.”
Since the attacks, Hughes has been vocal about gun control claiming in an interview with French TV channel, I-Télé, that France’s strict gun control laws “failed Paris”. He said: “Did your French gun control stop a single person from dying at the Bataclan? If anyone can answer yes, I’d like to hear it, because I don’t think so.”
Josh Homme and Bono also feature in the trailer with the QOTSA front man questioning-“how do my sweetest friend’s un-see this, they can’t.”
The film, which is directed by Colin Hanks, will air on HBO on February 13th.
