Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe has confirmed that he is writing a book about his arrest, incarceration, trial, and acquittal for manslaughter in the Czech Republic last year. The book will be published in North America by Da Capo Press and has been licensed to Random House in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
“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.”
Blythe’s as-yet untitled book will published in spring 2014.
