Eagles of Death Metal

Eagles of Death Metal

Eagles of Death Metal is an American garage rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1998. The group's chief contributors include Queens Of The Stone Age main man Josh Homme (who handles drums, rather than his usual guitar/vocal duties), and Jesse Hughes (vocals, guitar). Despite their misleading name, the group's sound was more akin to classic garage rock, with some elements of the Rolling Stones added in for good measure. However, the group was originally put on the back burner while Homme got Queens of the Stone Age off the ground. When QOTSA quickly became one of the world's most talked about hard rock bands, Homme sought to re-launch the Eagles of Death Metal as more than just a one-off project. Reconvening in 2003, the duo recorded three day's worth of material (almost all of the songs being taped on the very first take). The group's highly anticipated debut full-length, Peace, Love & Death Metal finally surfaced in March of 2004. The group's first European tour followed shortly thereafter, opening for the Distillers. Hughes and Homme reconvened in fall 2005 to make the second Eagles of Death Metal album; joined by Jack Black, Brody Dalle, Mark Lanegan and QOTSA's Joey Castillo, they recorded Death by Sexy in eight days. After a brief U.K. tour late that year, the Eagles of Death Metal toured with the Strokes in spring 2006, leading up to Death by Sexy's release. 2008's Heart On was more polished but still scuzzy.
