The memoir, called Sinner's Creed, is set for an October 2 release. "The book describes my childhood, my internal battle with drugs and depression and how I lost control of my life," Stapp wrote in a statement. This book has been in the works for a while: When we first heard about it back in March 2011, the working title was Exposed and Released: The Confessions of Scott Stapp. ("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," he said at the time.)
Creed will be done with their current set of tour dates by October, so beyond Sinner's Creed fans will be wondering if they'll be getting any new Creed music soon. Last year, Stapp talked about the possibility of another solo album, but there hasn't been any more information about that lately. In the meantime, Stapp will be looking back at his past, not necessarily concentrating on his and his band's future.
