Eagles of Death Metal – ‘I Want You So Hard’

“Man, I have been itching to get back out there and play some live rock ‘n’ roll again to the best fans in the world,” Hughes said in a statement alongside the tour’s announcement. “John Steinbeck once said, ‘People don’t take trips, trips take people’… This is an open invite to come take a trip with me and the band.”

Eagles of Death Metal last toured Australia in 2016, in support of fourth studio album Zipper Down. In 2019, Hughes released a covers album featuring renditions of songs by KISS, Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, The Ramones, George Michael, Queens of the Stone Age and more. According to today’s press release, the band are currently gearing up to release their fifth studio album later this year.
