EODM RELEASE SECOND WAVE OF COVERS, ANNOUNCE RESCHEDULED EURO TOUR

Eagles of Death Metal have just released the second wave of the Play It Forward EODM Campaign with a diverse assortment of covers of “I Love You All The Time” from Zipper Down. For every cover sold, the band has pledged to donate 100% of its publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation, the nonprofit org formed in 2013 by EODM co-founder Josh Homme to provide assistance to musicians and their families in times of need, as well as musical education and gear for the next generation. Participating artists were also asked to donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity.

The contributors to the new collection are (in alphabetical order) The Beaches, The Beta Machine, [Brackets], Buffalo Brothers, Matt Cameron, Ian Clement, Petra Haden, Halestorm (Live Version), Keith Kenny, Liam Lynch, Nada Surf, The People Between, Sonny Boy Thorn, The Whigs (live), Chelsea Wolfe and Yard of Blondes

The Play It Forward EODM Campaign was first inspired by Duran Duran, who reached out with an immediate and sincere act of musical solidarity in the aftermath of the 11/13 attacks in Paris that took so many lives at EODM’s show at Le Bataclan: Spurred by a fan-led campaign to push Eagles of Death Metal’s cover of Duran Duran’s classic “Save a Prayer” to #1 in the U.K., Simon LeBon tweeted that the group would donate their share of royalties from the track to charity.

In the weeks that followed, Eagles of Death Metal asked artists the world over to cover “I Love You All The Time," pledging to donate 100% of its publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation. With invaluable support from TuneCore, the first wave of “I Love You All The Time” renditions was made available, with contributions from acts including Florence + the Machine (featuring The Maccabees), Kings of Leon, Savages, My Morning Jacket, Imagine Dragons, Jimmy Eat World and the Dean Ween Group.

Yet more versions are forthcoming and will be announced as they are confirmed. Those wishing to donate should go to http://playitforwardeodm.com/ for information on how to do so.

With cooperation from Fondation de France and FENVAC, Play It Forward EODM Campaign donations to Sweet Stuff will aid the surviving family members of those killed in the is attacks—as well as the family of slain EODM crew member Nick Alexander

EODM will return to Europe for the first time since the band’s triumphant appearance during U2’s 12/7 Paris concert. The first run of rescheduled dates—now christened The Nos Amis Tour—will include a 2/16 show at the Olympia in Paris.

“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,” said EODM co-founder and frontman Jesse Hughes. "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 & roll to the world.”
