Eagles of Death Metal speak about #Parisattacks in sit-down interview #HNNMusic #HNNTerror

The band name on that Friday the 13th just creeps me out but Eagles of Death metal band who posted a picture of the concert audience on instagram before gunmen busted in now speaks about the ordeal.

The interview is with the band's lead singer Jesse Hughes and co-founder Joshua Homme.

"Several people hid in our dressing room, and the killers were able to get in and killed every one of them except for a kid who was hiding under my leather jacket," Hughes describes in the snippet posted to Facebook and YouTube.

"People were playing dead, and they were so scared," he goes on to say. "A great reason why so many were killed is because so many people wouldn’t leave their friends. And so many people put themselves in front of people."

While Hughes and the band survived the attack, the band's merchandise manager, Nick Alexander, as well as associates from their record label, Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez, did not.

A total of 89 people were killed at the concert.

Homme, who was not with the band in Paris, is raising money to aid victims of the Paris attack through his charity The Sweet Stuff Foundation.

The interview trailer posted on VICE's Facebook page has received some criticism for "teasing" the interview rather than immediately posting the whole video in its entirety.
