Watch Eagles of Death Metal's First Interview About Paris Attacks

The members discuss their horrifying personal experiences and means of survival

Nearly two weeks after the deadly terrorist attacks at Le Bataclan in Paris on Nov. 13, Vice has shared a new interview with Eagles of Death Metal, who were performing at the venue when the attack took place.

In the extended interview--the band's first since the horrific incident--the members described their individual means of escape from the terror. "I saw two guys out front, and that might be the most awful thing ever, them just relentlessly shooting into the audience," said drummer Julian Dorio, who hid behind his kit to avoid the terrorists.

Jesse Hughes, Eagles of Death Metal's frontman, said that he met a shooter face-to-face while trying to find his girlfriend in the chaos. "He brought his gun down, and his barrel hit the door frame, and I was like, 'Oh, f--k,' and I turned around," Hughes recalls. "I was like, 'No, no, no, no, no. Do not f--king come this way, do not,' and we started heading back down."
