The American rock band Eagles of Death Metal have spoken up for the first time since 89 people were massacred at their show in Paris’ Bataclan Theater by three men brandishing semi-automatic weapons.

According to the New York Times, among those dead were Nick Alexander, a 36-year-old from England, who was selling band merchandise and was well known among the touring musicians, and Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser and Manu Perez, who worked for the band’s record company.

The Palm Desert, California rooted band posted a tribute on their Facebook and Twitter accounts Wednesday, honoring the victims they knew personally and impersonally. The homage was posted with an image from the group’s first album, Peace, Love, Death Metal, superimposed over a French flag.

 

The band announced that all EODM shows are on hold until further notice but that they planned to dedicate a concert in Innsbruck, Austria, on Dec. 17 to Nick Alexander.
