Eagles of Death Metal have shared a statement about the Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris which left 129 people dead, including 89 at the band’s show at Le Bataclan.

“While the band is now home safe, we are horrified and still trying to come to terms with what happened in France,” they band said in a statement on Twitter.

“Our thoughts are first and foremost with our brother, Nick Alexander, our record company comrades Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez, and all the friends and fans whose lives were taken in Paris, as well as their friends, families, and loved ones.

“Although bonded in grief with the victims, the fans, the families, the citizens of Paris, and all those affected by terrorism, we are proud to stand together with our new family, now united by a common goal of love and compassion.”

The message continues to thank police and state departments for their action during the crisis, confirming that all Eagles of Death Metal shows are postponed until further notice.

Earlier this week, concert giant Live Nation vowed to increase security at its venues following the attacks.
