Dez Fafara of Coal Chamber/DevilDriver fame is preparing to publish his autobiography—or at least the first volume of it—on September 15th via Rare Bird Books. Penned by Fafara himself and writer Joel McIver, that book has been titled ‘Loco: Chaos, Calamity, And Coal Chamber‘.

An official product listing said of the upcoming book:

Loco is the first volume of autobiography from Dez Fafara. The California-born and raised everyman is now the singer and leader of the band DevilDriver, artist manager, multiple brand owner, and motivational guru.

In the period of time covered in Loco, though, Dez was just Bradley Fafara, a Hollywood club kid who escaped a lifetime wasted (in both senses) on the beach to become one of the 1990’s most vivid rock stars.

With his band Coal Chamber, Dez pioneered a whole new sound and visual, touring the world, battling innumerable obstacles and ultimately breaking free to go solo with DevilDriver, the focus of Volume Two of Fafara‘s two-book autobiography plan.

Titled after Coal Chamber’s 1997 hit, Loco describes the arc of a man who was ripped off, let down, and beaten up, but who never quit—and who ultimately achieved his own form of redemption. Includes 50+ black-and-white and full-color images.’

Coal Chamber will return to the stage this month for their first show since 2015. The group will hit the stage this weekend for the first-ever ‘Sick New World‘ fest in Las Vegas, NV. That event will be held at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds on May 13th. The band will follow it up with the below run alongside Mudvayne, GWAR, Nonpoint & Butcher Babies:
