WATCH: Eagles of Death Metal give first interview after Paris attacks

( - Members of the American rock band that was playing the Paris concert hall targeted by ISIS terrorists earlier this month have given their full account of the attack for the first time and vowed that they "can't wait" to return to the scarred venue.

In an interview with Vice News released Wednesday, Eagles of Death Metal co-founders Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme, as well as supporting players and members of the band's support crew, described the moments after the attack at the Bataclan Theatre and their response to the shattering experience. Of the 130 people killed in the attacks that night, 89 died at the concert.

The attack began at approximately 9:40 p.m., around an hour into the sold out show. Sound engineer Shawn London described hearing explosions and seeing members of the crowd fall to the floor.

"Injuries. Death. And then, also, running," London said. "There was nowhere to go." He added that one of the gunmen looked at him, aimed and fired, but missed.
