The book will be called Sinner’s Creed and is scheduled for an October 2 release. It will deal with Stapp’s musical career and his success as lead singer of Creed, but also with darker subjects, such as his battle with alcoholism, and depression. The book is co-written with David Ritz, who has worked on biographies for Janet Jackson and Marvin Gaye.
Earlier in the year Stapp spoke about the book to Billboard.com, saying: “It’s going to be constantly interrelated with the realities of God’s grace and love and miracles, and how they happen in the weirdest ways and how they happen to all of us... It’s definitely a cathartic process for me, and I really hope that those who read it can walk away knowing more about my life... but also the grace of God. If we can accomplish that, that would be a blessing.”
Stapp reunited with Creed in 2009, and is currently on tour with the band. The tour, which is billed as 2 Nights Live, sees the band performing their first two albums, My Own Prison and Human Clay, in full.
