Eagles of Death Metal call on other artists to help Paris victims by covering one of their songs



franceflagEagles of Death Metal have launched a unique campaign to help the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks.

The band will be donating proceeds from their song “I Love You All the Time” to the victims and has asked other artists to cover the song in order to help raise proceeds for the cause.

“We are calling upon our friends to donate their time, talent and good will in a show of solidarity to help the victims of these atrocious acts in Paris and those affected by terrorism worldwide,” said EODM drummer and co-founder Josh Homme, per RollingStone.com. “We are asking for you to cover our song ‘I Love You All the Time.’ For every cover sold, we pledge to donate 100 percent of the publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation. We ask that you also donate the money generated from sales of the song to the charity. In the same spirit, we would encourage you to offer one of your songs up to be covered by another artist, and follow suit – donate the publishing monies to charity – the ‘Play it Forward Initiative.'”
