DOCUMENTARY EAGLES OF DEATH METAL: NOS AMIS (OUR FRIENDS), CHRONICLING THE BAND’S RESILIENCE IN THE WAKE OF THE PARIS TERROR ATTACK, TO DEBUT  EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO IN FEB. 2017; COLIN HANKS DIRECTS

NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2016 – The HBO Documentary Films presentation EAGLES OF DEATH METAL: NOS AMIS (OUR FRIENDS) follows the American rock band as they recount their experiences before and after the tragic terrorist attack at their concert in Paris that claimed 89 lives on Nov. 13, 2015. Directed by Colin Hanks and produced by Live Nation Productions and Company Name, the film spotlights the group’s deep bonds with each other and with their fans, which inspired them to return to Paris to perform once again in Feb. 2016.EAGLES OF DEATH METAL: NOS AMIS (OUR FRIENDS) marks the first film produced and financed by Live Nation Productions and will debut domestically in Feb. 2017, exclusively on HBO.

Colin Hanks’ relationship with the band pre-dates the film by seven years, when he became close to them while working on his first documentary, “All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records.” Hanks felt compelled to document the band and their fans to try and make something positive from something truly unfathomable.

The film begins with the 2015 Paris attack at the Bataclan Theatre and delves into the deep bond between charismatic singer Jesse Hughes and band co-founder Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), which began in childhood and became an important source of inspiration for the band. NOS AMIS also features Bono and The Edge of U2, who invited Eagles of Death Metal to return to Paris and perform with them in solidarity shortly after the attack.

Several months later, on Feb. 16, 2016, dressed in one of his infamous capes, Jesse Hughes and Eagles of Death Metal took the stage in Paris once again. The film shows the band and their fans reunited in an attempt to heal and celebrate the spirit that has always brought them together as a community.

HBO Documentary Films presents EAGLES OF DEATH METAL: NOS AMIS (OUR FRIENDS); directed by Colin Hanks; produced by Sean Stuart through Company Name; produced by Heather Parry; executive produced by Michael Rapino through Live Nation Productions; edited by Darrin Roberts; cinematography by Boyd Hobbs; original music by Alain Johannes.
