Randy Blythe Signs Book Deal
Randy Blythe has been signed by a publisher to write a memoir of his experience being arrested and tried last year for the death of a fan at a Lamb of God show in the Czech Republic two years before.

Blythe was eventually found innocent, but his ordeal was a dramatic affair which played out in the press for months. During this time, Blythe surprised many with his sensitive open letters and thoughts on freedom which revealed a deeply intellectual side to the frontman.

"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," said Blythe in a press release. "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 will write the memoir himself without the help of a ghost writer, and it will be released on DeCapo Press in Spring 2014.

Would you read a memoir about such a dark and sensitive topic?
