It’s been a big year for Creed. The band has a relatively big tour earlier this year, and now frontman Scott Stapp is releasing a tell-all memoir. Titled Sinner’s Creed, the singer touches on topics including childhood abuse; struggles with booze, drugs, sex and depression.
“The book describes my childhood, my internal battle with drugs and depression and how I lost control of my life,” said Stapp in a statement. “My memoir reveals never before released details about my life and the challenges I’ve faced before coming to grips and finding sobriety.”
Stapp wrote the book with David Ritz, a Rolling Stone writer who’s also penned books on R&B legends like Janet Jackson and Marvin Gaye. The memoir also reportedly discusses why Stapp avoided one-on-one interviews until recently, and tracks the singer’s recovery, sobriety and return to the stage, “a turnaround he credits to his renewed faith in God.”
The book will be released on October 2.
