Dark Days: My Tribulation And Trials, the forthcoming memoir from Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe will officially hit stores this summer in the United States. The book was originally slated for a June 2014 release, but was obviously pushed back. Publisher Da Capo Press has now set a July 14 release for the memoir and the item is now available for pre-order. Here's the synopsis:

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."
