Eagles of Death Metal mastered their forthcoming third album, “Heart On,” at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Founding members Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes and Joshua “Baby Duck” Homme were on hand at sessions with mastering engineer Brian “Big Bass” Gardner.
Contrary to popular opinion, Eagles of Death Metal is not actually a death metal band. Joshua Homme describes the music as “bluegrass slide guitar mixed with stripper drum beats and Canned Heat vocals.” The band was formed in 1998 and achieved surprising early success partially due to the use of their music in numerous television commercials, including those for Nissan, Budweiser, Pontiac, and Wendy’s.
Eagles of Death Metal returned in 2006 with their sophomore album, “Death by Sexy,” and a resurgence of their early acclaim. Homme remarked that their new album is titled “Heart On” because the material was written while the band was touring relentlessly throughout the America heartland. The Rekords Rekords/Downtown album is slated for release October 28, 2008.
