Eagles of Death Metal are speaking publicly for the first time since terrorists opened fire during their Paris show last Friday.
In an interview with Vice, Jesse Hughes and Joshua Homme share their harrowing account of what happened that night, when several people attempted to seek refuge in the American rock band's dressing room. "The killers were able to get in and kill every one of them except a kid who was hiding under my leather jacket," Hughes said.
The band was able to escape through a backstage exit. However, 89 people were killed in the attack, including the band's merchandise manager Nick Alexander and their record label colleagues Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser and Manu Perez.
"A great reason why so many were killed is because so people wouldn't leave their friends," Hughes continued. "So many people put themselves in front of people."
Watch the preview of the band's Vice interview below. The full interview will be released later this week.
