THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

"Mark Lanegan-primitive, brutal, and apocalyptic. What's not to love?" NICK CAVE


"A stoned cold classic" IAN RANKIN

'Mark Lanegan writes like he sings, from the pained heart of a damaged soul with brutal honesty' BOBBY GILLESPIE

"Powerfully written and brutally, frighteningly honest" LUCINDA WILLIAMS

A ROUGH TRADE AND MOJO BOOK OF THE YEAR


From the back of the van to the front of the bar, from the hotel room to the emergency room, Mark Lanegan takes us back to the sinister, needle-ridden streets of Seattle, to an alternative music scene that was simultaneously bursting with creativity and saturated with drugs. He tracks the tumultuous rise and fall of Screaming Trees, from a brawling, acid-rock bar band to world-famous festival favourites with an enduring legacy, and tells of his own personal struggles with addiction, culminating in homelessness, petty crime, and the tragic deaths of his closest friends.

Gritty, gripping and unflinchingly raw, SING BACKWARDS AND WEEP is about a man who learned how to drag himself from the wreckage, dust off the ashes, and keep living and creating.

'The most brutally honest rock memoir imaginable' DAILY TELEGRAPH
