NEW YORK (AP/CBS 8) — Members of the band Eagles of Death Metal say they're home safe after the Paris attacks and "are horrified and still trying to come to terms with what happened in France."

The U.S. band was set to perform at the Bataclan last week when the deadly attacks occurred.

They said in a statement Wednesday that their "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."

The band released a new album last month. They were on a European tour when the attacks occurred. They said all shows are on hold until further notice.

The band also thanked "the French police, the FBI, the U.S. and French State Departments."

They released this statement Wednesday on their Facebook page:

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.
