HBO will air a documentary about the American rock band caught up in the November 2015 Paris attacks.

Produced by Live Nation Productions and Company Name, Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends) is being directed by Colin Hanks and will premiere on the U.S. cable net next February.

The doc follows Eagles of Death Metal as they recount their experiences before and after gunman killed 89 people during their concert at the Bataclan theater on Nov. 13, 2015. The group eventually returned to the French capital to perform in solidarity with fans in February 2016.

Hanks became close to the band, which was co-founded by singer Jesse Hughes and Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, while working on his first doc, All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records.

The film also features U2′s Bono and The Edge, who invited Eagles of Death Metal to return to Paris and perform with them shortly after the attack.

Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends) marks the first film produced and financed by concert promoter Live Nation’s production arm.

Sean Stuart of Company Name and Heather Parry are producing. Michael Rapino is exec producing for Live Nation Productions.
