The band posted a message on their Facebook page as a tribute to Marie Mosser, 24, and Thomas Ayad, 32, who were killed at the Bataclan concert that was attacked during an Eagles of Death Metal concert. Members Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans expressed their shock and sadness at their deaths.

The post read: ?We want to pass on our deepest condolences to the families and friends of Thomas and Marie who were a huge part of The Vamps team in France and who tragically passed away Friday night in Paris. They will be sorely missed by us and all that knew them. Brad, James, Connor and Tristan.?

According to Mirror Online, Marie worked for Mercury Records, Universal Music Group, and helped look after the British band alongside Thomas Ayad, 32, a producer for Mercury Music Group.

Guitarist James also tweeted his thoughts on the attacks that have claimed the lives of 129 people.

Universal Music also took to Twitter with their own tribute saying: “Universal Music family is now in mourning. Thank you all for your messages. Thoughts victims & their families. RIP.”

The lead single of the album was released in October and the music video features Brooklyn Beckham, the son of David and Victoria Beckham.

?We?re all songwriters and musicians who have played our instruments for eight years or more,? says singer Brad Simpson. ?We take a lot of pride in that,? adds bassist Connor Ball. ?I think the ultimate goal for us as musicians is that when people listen to our music they realize that it?s all us. Not only that, but we would love people to be happy when they listen to our music and to be able to connect with it in any way they can.?
