(TeamRock Radio) French music festivals Rock en Seine and Cabaret Vert have pulled Eagles Of Death Metal from their August events following renewed allegations from Jesse Hughes over the Paris Bataclan attacks.

In March, Hughes said he felt something was amiss with security at the venue before extremist gunmen forced their way into the concert hall - allegations which the Bataclan branded "grave and defamatory." He later apologised for his "absurd" remarks, saying that they were the result of trauma.

But the frontman now says that he thinks the terrorists were in the venue early and also claims he witnessed Muslims "celebrating in the streets" when he escaped during the massacre.

Hughes tells TakiMag: "There's no denying the terrorists were already inside, and they had to get in somehow. During the shooting I went outside and the backstage door was propped open. How did that happen?

"I saw Muslims celebrating in the street during the attack. I saw it with my own eyes. In real time. How did they know what was going on? There must have been coordination."

But Hughes' comments have sparked anger with both Rock en Seine and Cabaret Vert, who issued a joint statement saying: "As we are in total disagreement with Jesse Hughes' recent allegations given in an interview with an American media outlet, both Cabaret Vert and Rock en Seine festivals have decided to cancel the band's performance."
