LAMB OF GOD Frontman Randy Blythe Launches Blog For “Dark Days Book”Sunday, 9th February 2014
LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe has launched a blog for this forthcoming book, Dark Days: My Tribulation And Trials, at this location. Da Capo Press will release LAMB OF GOD vocalist Randy Blythe’s memoir, Dark Days: My Tribulation And Trials, later this year. Random House has purchased the foreign rights to the book and will act as publisher in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
The memoir, which puts emphasis on the past year of Randy’s life, is an incredible, harrowing, heartbreaking, and redemptive story told in Blythe’s already well-recognized writing style.
The rights to Blythe’s book were sold to Da Capo executive editor Ben Schafer by Marc Gerald at The Agency Group.
“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,” said Blythe. “Sometimes though, life unexpectedly provides you a story that needs to be told. 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.”
Added Schafer: “I knew that Randy was a master vocalist and lyricist but it turns out he is a vivid and visceral prose writer as well.
“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.”
