JESSE Hughes and Marq Torien have collaborated on the new soundtrack for the movie Super Troopers 2, the Bulletboys singer has revealed.
“He invited me to come and sing with Eagles of Death Metal on their new body of work,” Marq Torien tells the latest episode of the White Line Fever podcast.
“We just got finished working doing the soundtrack for the now movie, Super Troopers 2. We re-did a song called ‘Blinded By The Light’. and it sounds unreal.
“When you guys hear that, it’s going to be coming out really, really soon … I’m just ecstatic.”
“Blinded By The Light” was first released by Manfred Man in 1976; Torien seems to have performed backing vocals.
Despite regularly courting controversy since his band Eagles Of Death Metal were caught up in the Bataclan attack in 2015, 45-year-old Hughes is described by 56-year-old Torien as a hero.
“I have loved Jesse and EODM since the very beginning, since the start fo their band,” says Torien.
“Jesse, to me, with what he went through at the Bataclan is a hero. I’m very close with him now.
“I always wanted to meet him because he saved people’s lives, you know? No-one has ever been through what he’s been through as a rock’n’roller, as a punk rock musician.”
