Eagles of Death Metal have announced tour dates to celebrate their 24 years as a group. The band―currently comprising founding member Jesse Hughes on vocals and guitar, Jennie Vee on bass, Jorma Vik on drums, and Joshua Jove on guitar―will hit the road this November and December on a 12-date tour.
They kick things off at Brighton’ CHALK on November 22 before wrapping the tour on December 12 at Bristol’s O2 Academy. The UK/Ireland dates are intended to kick-start a yet-to-be-announced multi-year trek that will see the band perform through Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, the US, and Canada.
Frontman Hughes said: “Having been stuck in and around the house for over a year has had me pacing like a caged animal. I cannot wait to let loose and get back out on stage to do my thing for all the lovely people around the world. Rock ‘n Roll is meant to be shared, and I can only shake my dick around the house and perform for my cat for so long before she starts flat-out ignoring me.”
EODM was formed in 1998 in Palm Desert, California by best friends Jesse Hughes and Joshua Homme. The band released Peace Love Death Metal in 2004, followed by Death by Sexy in 2006, Heart On in 2008, Zipper Down in 2015, and Eagles Of Death Metal Presents Boots Electric Performing The Best Songs We Never Wrote in 2019.
Hughes and his band are sure to get into more unpredictable antics when they hit the UK and Ireland this fall.
