Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley‘s memoir, titled “Walking Disaster: My Life Through Heaven And Hell,” will be released on October 8.

Announcing the news via his Instagram page, Whibley wrote, “I am extremely honored and excited to announce that I have a memoir called ‘WALKING DISASTER, My Life Through Heaven and Hell’, which will be published by gallerybooks and released on October 8th”.

The Canadian musician also shared the cover of the book, featuring a photo of him holding his guitar.

According to publisher Gallery Books, the memoir follows Whibley’s rise from a punk kid in Canada to an international star.

“Walking Disaster is Deryck’s story, but it is also the untold story of Sum 41. Deryck takes you backstage, into the recording booth, and through the highest highs and lowest lows of the band whose story is inextricably woven with his own,” reads an official synopsis posted by the publisher.

“From winning at the MTV Video Music Awards, being nominated for a Grammy, his high-profile relationships and friendships, contending with invasive paparazzi, and suffering from health issues that brought him to the brink, Deryck offers a forthright and unforgettable memoir,” it adds.

The singer, rhythm guitarist, keyboardist and songwriter remains the only constant member of the rock band since he co-founded it in 1994.
