Published Feb 26, 2015There has been a rather protracted wait for Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe's memoir, which had initially been pegged for release last June. Now, Da Capo Press has set a new date for the book, which will finally arrive on shelves on July 14.
As previously reported, the tome is called Dark Days: My Tribulation and Trials. It's 288 pages long and will initially be released in a hardcover edition and digitally for Kindle. Random House will publish it internationally.
The book will focus on Blythe's 2013 trial in Prague, when he faced charges of manslaughter after pushing a 19-year-old fan off the stage in 2010. He spent 37 days in prison before being released on bail and was eventually found not guilty.
A synopsis describes the book like this: "In Dark Days, Blythe tells the story of his incarceration and the wild life that led up to it. As he explains, 'Most substance abuse books end with the author getting sober. My book starts there.'"
The book can be pre-ordered on Amazon. Not that the image above is apparently not the final version of the cover.
Meanwhile, Blythe had said that he would taking a break from Lamb of God, but the metal band have lots of tour dates lined up for 2015. This includes the "Summer's Last Stand" trek with Slipknot, Bullet for My Valentine and Motionless in White.
