It has been three years since these eagles swooped down under, and Eagles of Death Metal are ready to put on a show for their Australian fans. Bound to be an energy-filled performance that celebrates all things music, the Californian rock and rollers play Metro City on Monday, April 13, 2020.
There’s no denying this band has been through a lot. Frontman Jesse Hughes has been a controversial figure in recent times, and they are survivors of the Bataclan bomb attack in 2015, which took place during one of their shows in Paris, a heartbreaking and traumatising ordeal for the band.
Despite their name, EODM aren’t in fact a death metal band; instead leaning more towards a mixture of classic rock, bluegrass and a slight sprinkle of buffoonery. Formed by high school besties Hughes and Josh Homme in 1998, the band have since released four studio albums featuring hits like Miss Alissa, Wannabe in L.A and Save a Prayer. The tour will be supporting their recent album, EODM Presents Boots Electric Performing The Best Songs We Never Wrote, a fun compilation of cover songs sung by Jesse Hughes, aka Boots Electric.
EODM Presents Boots Electric Performing The Best Songs We Never Wrote is out now. Eagles of Death Metal play Metro City on Monday, April 13, 2020. Tickets from the Bluesfest Touring website.
