In a statement, DFA 1979’s Sebastian Grainger discussed the band’s admiration for EODM frontman Jesse Hughes:

“It began back in 2005 on tour with Queens Of The Stone Age when EODM founding member, Joshua Homme, mentioned that he had a friend back home with a better mustache than ours (our band doesn’t share ONE mustache, we had one each). That friend back home was Jesse Hughes. Jesse is what I would consider a real rock-and-roll creature. He was born in a jean jacket.

“In fact, he was wearing a jean jacket when our fates collided for a second time: Christmas shopping at a Best Buy in the Atwater Village area of L.A., December 24th, 2012. I saw him from across the parking lot wearing a Canadian tuxedo (Google Image search!) and aviator sunglasses. I thought to myself: There’s only one other rock-and-roller on earth baddass enough to face a shopping tsunami at a major electronics big-box on Christmas Eve, Jesse from EODM. I creepily admired him from afar while I shopped for a Bluetooth speaker. The only difference between him and I at that moment is that he looked like the lead singer in a rock-and-roll band and I looked like Val Kilmer in Weird Science.

“The next stop on the Wheel-Of-Fortune-Of-Life brought us together in a dusty barbecue shack in the Mojave desert. I was hunched over a pile of charred bones, my face and hands so sticky with sauce I looked like a hyena feasting on the African savanna. I looked up from the carnage and who did I see? Two tremendous Eagles: Dave Catching and Joshua Homme. Eagles Of Death Metal are like peyote; You don’t find them, they find you. I did them the service of washing up the gore before walking over and saying “Hello, it’s me”.

“If all of this seems like a crazy reason to go on tour together, I think you’re crazy.

“Canada, get ready for real rock-and-roll and wear your tuxedos.”
