The band is "considering options that are useful, peaceful and uniting."

With a fan-led campaign underway to get the Eagles of Death Metal's cover of Duran Duran's "Save a Prayer" to the top of the U.K. music charts, the British new wave band has announced it will donate all proceeds received from the version.

Following the deadly attack at Paris' Bataclan theater during the Eagles of Death Metal concert on Friday, Duran Duran singer Simon Le Bon made the pledge Monday (Nov. 16) on Twitter, saying the band would be "considering options that are useful, peaceful & uniting."

The "Eagles of Death Metal for No.1" campaign kicked on Saturday on Facebook with the stated intent "to show our solidarity against terrorism and support for peace." As of press time, it had more than 11,000 members. The U.K. singles chart closes at one minute before midnight on Nov. 19.
