Just when you thought it was safe to take your ladyfriends out again, Eagles of Death Metal are perched and ready to swoop in. The band has already toured their mustaches off this year but the road once more beckons and the people have spoken. there will be more Eagles for the masses in '09!
Earlier this year, the gang warmed up with a co-headlining stint with fellow mischief-makers The Hives. They followed up with their own full-scale, national headlining tour. After the Eagles bus takes a quick pit stop for the holidays the boys will set sail again - this time for a voyage across the globe, including a February full of US dates. Expect the band to unleash a storm of freshly brewed concoctions from their latest saga, Heart On (Downtown Records), plus all the hits you crave from EODM albums of yore.
In 2004, Eagles of Death Metal launched their wholesome good-graciousness with Peace, Love, and Death Metal, followed, in 2006, by the diabolical Death By Sexy. Earlier this year, the two captains of the EODM starship (a.k.a. Jesse "Boots Electric" Hughes and Joshua "Babyduck" Homme) laid down the dozen new rumpshakin' rock hard rock tunes have taken shape in the form of Heart On. The Dream Duo recorded in Burbank, Los Angeles, Boise, Fargo, and Amsterdam, and were joined in the studio by fellow midnight maurauders Miss Kat Von D, Brian "B.O.C." O'Connor, Darlin' Dave Catching, Alain Johannes, Troy Van Leeuwen, Brody "Queen Bee" Dalle, and Kim "Koko Bubbles" Martinelli.
