Surviving Beastie Boys Michael “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz have signed a deal with Random House imprint Spiegel and Grau to release a Beastie Boys memoir. Via Exclaim:
According to the New York Times, the Beasties’ book will break from convention and instead feature “a pastiche of voices, images, irreverent humor and pop-culture reference points.”
Though the title won’t be announced until later this week, the book is due for release in fall 2015. Hip-hop writer Sacha Jenkins will be authoring the collection, but it will contain contributions from other writers, as well as strong visuals.
This weekend will mark the one year anniversary of the death of third Beastie Adam “MCA” Yauch. Yauch died on May 4, 2012, following a long battle with cancer.
