Randy Blythe, the vocalist for Virginia metal band Lamb Of God, has announced that he will be spending the next few weeks penning a memoir that will put emphasis on the past year of his life. This includes his arrest, incarceration, trial, and acquittal for manslaughter in the Czech Republic last year, which Blythe will discuss, detailing every aspect in his own words, from his own point of view. There will be no ghost writers nor any co-authors.
The rights to the book have been sold to De Capo Press and the book has an expected Spring 2014 release date.
“While I’ve dreamed of being a published author almost since I began to read, I never imagined my first book would center around such a sad topic. Sometimes though, life unexpectedly provides you a story that needs to be told,” states Blythe. “I believe this one does (for several different reasons, not just for the benefit of myself), so I will tell it with the respect and dignity all involved deserve. This will be a good read, I promise you, and I hope some good comes of it.”
“I knew that Randy was a master vocalist and lyricist but it turns out he is a vivid and visceral prose writer as well,” adds Da Capo Press Executive Editor Ben Schafer. “Regarding his arrest and trial in the Czech Republic, Randy handled a frightening and heartbreaking situation with courage, grace, and humility, and we at Da Capo Press are honored to have the opportunity to have a part in telling his story.”
Blythe has proven himself to be a master of words, as evidenced by his description of meeting the parents of 19-year old Daniel Nosek, who died after sustaining injuries at a 2010 Lamb Of God concert in Prague. That post can be read here.
