A month after their Paris concert was the site of a vicious terrorist attack that left 89 dead, Eagles of Death Metal has announced plans to go back to Europe. They promptly canceled the remaining dates on their European tour following the events of Nov. 13.

A statement from Jesse Hughes, frontman and co-founder of Eagles of Death Metal, reads:

“The people of Paris have always been incredible to us, and our feeling of love towards this beautiful city and its people has been reinforced a million times over this past month. Hearing the stories of the survivors, the injured and those who have lost loved ones has been overwhelming. Not returning to finish our set was never an option. We look forward to coming back in February and continuing our mission to bring rock ‘n’ roll to the world.”

The band's official site promises a free ticket to their next Paris concert for those who were at the concert hall, La Bataclan, that was targeted in one of three coordinated terrorist attacks across the city. The announcement notes that "the Bataclan Theatre will not be open again in time for the band’s return on this tour."
