France Natives SINNER SINNERS Team Up with EAGLES OF DEATH METAL to Support the Play It Forward Campaign in Support of Paris, France
Joining Artists Such as FLORENCE + THE MACHINE (Featuring the MACCABEES), KINGS OF LEON, IMAGINE DRAGONS, MY MORNING JACKET, JIMMY EAT WORLD, and More - Releasing Cover Versions of EAGLES OF DEATH METAL'S "I Love You All the Time"
In the weeks that followed the terrible, senseless terrorist attacks on Paris on November 13, 2015 - during which many innocent lives were taken at an Eagles Of Death Metal show at Le Bataclan - EDOM reached out to their musical family, asking them to extend the same outpouring of support and kindness that everyone from the members of U2 to the French authorities had shown the band, and join their Play It Forward campaign.
The campaign asks artists the world over to cover "I Love You All The Time" from EDOM's current album Zipper Down. For every cover sold, the band pledges to donate 100% of its publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation, the non-profit organization founded in 2013 by EODM co-founder Joshua Homme to provide assistance to musicians and their families in times of need, as well as musical education and gear for the next generation. Participating artists were also asked to donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity.
So far, artists such as Florence + The Machine (featuring the Maccabees), Ed Harcourt, Imagine Dragons, Jimmy Eat World, Alain Johannes, Kings Of Leon, Mini Mansions, My Morning Jacket, The New Pacific, R00ms, Savages, and Dean Ween Group have joined the cause and recorded covers, in addition to France-natives SINNER SINNERS.
Comprised of married couple Steve and Sam Thill, SINNER SINNERS jumped at the chance to join their longtime friends in EODM in this opportunity to give back to their brethren.
On December 2nd, SINNER SINNERS, Nic Jodoin, and Jesse Hughes joined the rest of the band (Michael Amster on drums, Macy Mullen on lead guitars, Mike McCrary on bass, Ben Palmer on guitar, and Celine Royer and Tuesday Cross on vocals) at Valentine Recordings, to record their cover, attempting to pay the best homage they could by doing so as lightly, happily and positively as possible, as an ode to life and art. It was the first time they performed music since the attacks.
Jeremy Thomas, a French videographer also based in LA wanted to be involved in the project and made a music video including images from the band's recording session. SINNER SINNERS asked their friends in Paris to ask their friends to send the band videos of Paris, shows, streets, things they like to add to the music video and show a little bit of happiness and the Parisians being Parisians. They received amateur and professional videos, filmed before or after November 13th. All good memories, all enjoyable moments, all from the heart. SINNER SINNERS added those to the video as this moment is not just ours but everyone's.
