EAGLES OF DEATH METAL Announce 'A Boots Electric Christmas' EP

September 28, 2021

On November 19, UMe and EAGLES OF DEATH METAL's Jesse "Boots Electric" Hughes join forces to gift us all with "Eagles Of Death Metal Presents A Boots Electric Christmas", a six-track EP sure to bring much-needed holiday cheer to the ears and hearts of every little girl and boy. The EP will be available on CD and all digital formats.

Hughes puts his signature aural alter-ego "Boots Electric" stamp on a half-dozen electrified interpretations of perennial holiday classics that include "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", "O Holy Night", "Little Drummer Boy" and "Little Town Of Bethlehem". The sonic highlight rounding out the EP is an extraordinary and quite stirring, a cappella rendition of "O Holy Night" featuring Hughes and EODM bandmate Joshua Homme on vocals.

Hughes said of this new, winter-wonderful holiday EP: "Just a few songs to warm your heart during Christmas time. I hope you like them. May Christmas bring peace to you all. Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, I love you, and God bless you all."

Pre-order "Eagles of Death Metal Presents A Boots Electric Christmas" now and immediately receive "O Holy Night", followed by "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" on October 29.

EAGLES OF DEATH METAL has also announced the second leg of its 24th-anniversary tour, which will take place across Europe next March and April. The previously announced first leg of the tour kicks off in Brighton, U.K. on November 22, 2021, with special guest BONES UK.

Concertgoers will also be able to purchase bottles of Eagles Of Death Metal: Shrieking In Tongues, EODM's own brand of cherry-cola and habanero-flavored BBQ hot sauce as made by Dean Of The Dead Hot Sauce. Shrieking In Tongues will be available for purchase onsite at each European venue as a tour-merch exclusive.
