Frank Turner has signed a deal with publisher Headline to write a memoir of his life on tour. Starting with his final gig with hardcore band Million Dead, the book will track Turner’s solo career and his touring escapades, including playing at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012.

Says Turner: “It took some persuading for me to think about writing a book of any kind, but in the end I realised that I have spent a pretty unusual amount of time touring hard in the last few years, and I have a fair few stories to tell, and maybe even a tiny smidgen of wisdom to impart to people starting out on the same path. Plus I come from a family of yarn-spinners, and I can run my mouth, so it makes sense”.

The book is scheduled to come out next spring.
