Amazon is now taking pre-orders for Lamb of God frontmanRandy Blythe's memoir. The book, titled "Dark Days: My Tribulations and Trials," is released through Da Capo Press and is coming out on June 24th 2014. The Blurb for the book that features on the site reads as follows: "In 2010, a nineteen-year-old super-fan rushed the stage during a Lamb of God concert in Prague. To protect himself, singer Randy Blythe pushed the fan away. Unbeknownst to Blythe, the young man hit his head on the floor when he fell and later died from the injury. Blythe was promptly incarcerated on charges carrying a prison term of five to ten years. Thirty-seven days later, he was released on bail to await trial. Although legal experts told him not to return to the Czech Republic to face the charges, Blythe explained that he 'could not run away from this problem while the grieving family of a dead young man searched hopelessly for answers that [he] might help provide.' "After a five-day trial, he was acquitted on March 5, 2013. "In 'Dark Days,' Blythe tells the story of his incarceration and the wild life that led up to it. As he explains, 'Most substance abuse books end with the author getting sober. My book starts there.'"

    I'm not a huge fan of LoG, but massive props to Blythe for being a man and returning to Prague to face trial.

    I'm not a huge Lamb of God fan, but I have a tremendous amount of respect for Randy. I found the case very interesting and I will probably give his memoir a read.

    Randy Blythe called me out on Instagram because I told him to stop bitching. I better be in the special thanks section.
