Echo & the Bunnymen hero Will Sergeant has announced he'll be taking a big look back with a new memoir.

The guitarist has just announced Bunnyman: A Memoir, which will arrive on July 15 via Constable/Little Brown.

By the sounds of things, the book will dig deep into Sergeant past, stretching all the way back to his schoolboy days in Liverpool.

"Growing up in Liverpool in the 1960s and '70s, when skinheads, football violence and fear of just about everything was the natural order of things, a young Will Sergeant found the emerging punk scene provided a shimmer of hope amongst a crumbling city still reeling from the destruction of the Second World War," the book's description reads.

"From school-day horrors and mud flinging fun to nights at Liverpool's punk club, Eric's, Sergeant was fuelled by and thrived on music. It was this devotion that led to the birth of the Bunnymen, to the days when he and Ian McCulloch would muck around with reel-to-reel recordings of song ideas in the back parlour of his parents' council estate house, and to finding a community – friends, enemies and many in between – with those who would become post-punk royalty from the likes of Dead or Alive, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and the Teardrop Explodes to name a few."
