Randy Blythe endured a lot over the last year, and now the singer is ready to share his experiences with you. The Lamb of God frontman has announced that he inked a deal with Da Capo Press to release a memoir that details the events surrounding his recent manslaughter trial.

“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,” says Blythe in a statement. “Sometimes though, life unexpectedly provides you a story that needs to be told…so I will tell it with the respect and dignity all involved deserve.”

Back in March, a Czech court acquitted Blythe of manslaughter in connection with an incident that took place during the band’s 2010 concert at Club Abaton in Prague.  Blythe was accused of roughing up a fan named Daniel Nosek , who leaped onto the stage during the show.  Czech Republic authorities alleged that the incident caused injuries that led to Nosek's death 14 days later.

Blythe's as-yet-untitled memoir is expected to hit stores sometime in the spring of 2014.
