Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends) explores tragic Paris night

Barely two years ago the news of terrorists attacking Paris was shocking. They struck all around the city including barraging into the Bataclan Theater and slaughtering 89 concert goers and injured so many more. When cellphone videos were posted online, it was stomach churning to see a normal concert destroyed by gunfire. Eagles of Death Metal and their fans had few places to hide as the killers arrived. Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends) explores the horrors and way the survivors have dealt with the tragic evening when people just wanted to enjoy a rock band in a historic venue. It also covers the band’s return to that stage. Now the HBO special is coming out as part of the Shout Select line on December 1. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:

Los Angeles, CA – The poignant HBO documentary Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends) will be released on Blu-ray and DVD by Shout! Factory on December 1, 2017, it was announced today.
