The California rock band that narrowly escaped an attack on the Bataclan concert hall in Paris last November is going back on tour, with two dates set for Quebec.

Members of the Eagles of Death Metal survived a massacre after gunmen stormed and killed 89 people at the theatre on Nov. 13.  

The band is slated to play in Paris in February — just three months after the attacks took the lives of 130 people and forced France into a state of emergency.

A series of Canadian tour dates were announced Monday on social media including concerts in Montreal and Quebec City set for the month of May.

The Eagles of Death Metal will play alongside Death From Above 1979 at Montreal's Corona Theatre on May 5 and l'Impérial Bell in Quebec City on May 8.

The Los Angeles band played its first concert after the massacre in December in Paris, sharing the stage with U2.
