Hey everyone, so it is time to "let the cat out of the bag." Over the last few months I have been putting a book together called I'm Outta Here!: A Collection Of Interviews And Anecdotes From The Punk Scene (2014-2018). It is a collection of about 40 interviews of punk artists that I have conducted over the years of my involvement in the punk scene. Along with these interviews will be never before published anecdotes and stories, professionally shot photographs and more. Many of the interviews will be from different outlets (not just Punknews) as well as some that have never been published in written form before. Some of the musicians that will be featured in the book include members of The Ramones, Rage Against The Machine, Swingin’ Utters, Off With Their Heads, X, Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, Good Riddance, The Flatliners, Masked Intruder, The Interrupters, The Dwarves, The Lawrence Arms, and many more. I'm Outta Here! will be self-published and have a limited first edition that should be out in November 2018. Preorders for the book are available now right here!
Big thanks to Aubin Paul for the opportunity to use Punknews as a platform for this. Without the ol' Org, Aubin, Adam White, John Gentile, the rest of the staff, and the readers, this would not have been possible. I truly appreciate it.
