We cannot even begin to imagine what they're going through right now.

The world was shocked last Friday when terrorist attacks on Paris left 129 people dead, including 89 people at the Bataclan concert venue.

Now, five days later, the band that was performing when terrorists opened fire on the audience is speaking out.

Eagles of Death Metal managed to escape the building before they were taken hostage, but unfortunately not all of their crew members made it out alive.

Bandmates Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme took to Facebook Wednesday morning to address their sorrow over the loss of their merchandise manager Nick Alexander, as well as the other slain industry personnel, saying:

"While the band is now home safe, we are horrified and still trying to come to terms with what happened in France. Our thoughts and hearts are first and foremost with our brother Nick Alexander, our record company comrades Thomas Ayad, Marie Mosser, and Manu Perez, and all the friends and fans whose lives were taken in Paris, as well as their friends, families, and loved ones.

Although bonded in grief with the victims, the fans, the families, the citizens of Paris, and all those affected by terrorism, we are proud to stand together, with our new family, now united by a common goal of love and compassion.

We would like to thank the French police, the FBI, the U.S. and French State Departments, and especially all those at ground zero with us who helped each other as best they could during this unimaginable ordeal, proving once again that love overshadows evil.

All EODM shows are on hold until further notice.

Vive la musique, vive la liberté, vive la France, and vive EODM."

We're glad to see them finding the positive in such an unbelievably terrible situation.

Our thoughts continue to be with everyone affected by the deadly attacks at this time.
