Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe, fresh off fighting an appeal over his manslaughter charges, has announced the release of a new memoir that will detail the events of the Czech trial. The trial was held due to the death of a fan at the groove metal band’s tour stop in Prague. Blythe pushed the fan offstage when he had climbed up, leading to the young fan of 19 suffering brain damage, falling into a coma, and dying weeks later from the injuries sustained. The book, so far untitled, intends to describe the events of that concert as well as Blythe’s arrest, trial, and the aftermath of the whole ordeal. Read a statement from Blythe himself after the jump. You can purchase a CD or concert tickets here.
“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. 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.”
