The incredible memoir from Lamb of God frontman, Randy Blythe. 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."

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A metal legend... his jailing and trial are truly disturbing, his writing of it is astonishingly good, and the whole is humane and uplifting" * Sunday Sport *
"What elevates it above many banged-up-abroad books is Blythe's skill as a storyteller... he gives an in-depth glimpse into the mind of an alcoholic and the life of a touring rock band... Smarter and a hell of a lot darker than your average rock memoir" * Classic Rock *
"Immersive, heart-wrenching" * Metal Hammer *
"Essential, tragic chronicle of metal mayhem" * Record Collector *
"...this tome is far more than just the story of his trial. You get the measure of Randy and his character through his trials and tribulations. You will come away with new perspective on the man. And a wish never to have to take a shower in a Czech prison" * Kerrang! *
