NOFX Write Band Autobiography with Foreword from Billie Joe Armstrong
Published Oct 27, 2015Legendary pop-punk crew NOFX have been giving us a great deal of insight into their career as of late. Not only did they release a second season of their self-made Backstage Passport series, but they've now written a band autobiography.
The book is called NOFX: Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories, and is billed as a "tell-all autobiography" written by the current members of the band, with help from two former members. The book also features a foreword from Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong.
Promising "comedy, tragedy, and completely inexplicable success," the book will tell the story of the long-running punk band.
Here's an excerpt from the book's write-up:
Alongside hilarious anecdotes about pranks and drunkenness and teenage failures—featuring the trademark NOFX sense of humor—the book also shares the ugliness and horror the band members experienced on the road to becoming DIY millionaires. Fans and non-fans alike will be shocked by stories of murder, suicide, addiction, counterfeiting, riots, bondage, terminal illness, the Yakuza, and pee… lots and lots of pee.
NOFX: Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories will arrive on April 12, 2016, via De Capo Press.
