Eagles Of Death Metal documentary pulled from film festival following Paris attack

A documentary about the release of the new Eagles Of Death Metal album has been pulled from a film festival following the terrorist attack on the band’s gig in Paris.

The Redemption of the Devil follows frontman Jesse Hughes as the rockers prepare for the release of their record, Zipper Down.

The documentary, made by director Alex Hoffman, was due to be shown at the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam, Holland, but it has now been withdrawn from the schedule.

The decision was made following the horrific attacks in Paris that the band was caught up in on Nov. 13.

Gunmen targeted several sites in the French capital killing 130 people, including the Bataclan music venue, where the Eagles of Death Metal were playing. Armed men took hostages and killed 89 revellers at the gig. The band escaped unharmed, but members of their crew and record company were killed in the attack.

Editors at the BBC report the documentary was pulled from the film festival because the “timing felt inappropriate”. The event runs from Nov. 18 to Nov. 29.

The band issued their first statement since the attack on Thursday, and confirmed all their shows have been put on hold until further notice.

The traumatized musicians, who ran for their lives as gunmen stormed their concert, insisted they were “bonded in grief with the victims, the fans… and all those affected by terrorism”.
