“We don’t really have a choice” responded Josh Homme when recently asked whether Eagles of Death Metal planned to reschedule their European tour after it postponed in the wake of the Paris terror attacks. “Not only for ourselves and our fans, not only for [slain merch manager] Nick Alexander, not only because this is our way of life … it’s the human condition.”

Today, EODM made good on their promise, as they’ve announced their intention to return to Europe in February. The rescheduled tour includes a gig at the Olympia in Paris scheduled for February 16th. See the full itinerary below.

According to the band’s Facebook page, they’ve dubbed the upcoming jaunt “The Nos Amis Tour” (translated to “Our Friends”). Added frontman Jesse Hughes in a statement, “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.”
