Eagles of Death Metal

Already announced to perform at Bluesfest, EODM’s Easter 2016 visit will also include headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle You don’t get much more rock-n-roll than Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme. Best mates since they were teenagers, the Palm Desert, Californian pair formed EODM in 1998. Despite their band name, EODM is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was attempting to convert Joshua Homme to the death metal genre, and Homme wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, EODM was born. They have released four albums (Peace Love Death Metal in 2004, Death By Sexy in 2006, Heart On in 2008 and 2015’s Zipper Down), toured the globe many times over and played a bunch of the worlds biggest festivals including Coachella, Glastonbury, Roskilde and many more. Both prolific artists, in addition to EODM Hughes has released solo albums, contributed to books and made a feature documentary while Homme has become a pivotal figure of modern music, a member of Queens Of The Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures and most recently collaborating with the legendary Iggy Pop. In February 2016 EODM will return to the road, hitting stages across Canada and Lollapalooza in South America before heading to Australia in March. Fievent.com | Contact | Privacy | Terms
