Former Sonic Youth vocalist/guitarist Thurston Moore will release his memoir, Sonic Life, on Oct. 24 through Doubleday Books in the U.S. and Faber & Faber in the U.K. Sonic Life follows the 2015 release of Moore’s former wife and Sonic Youth bandmate Kim Gordon’s own memoir, Girl in a Band, which spared no detail about how Moore’s infidelity led to the demise of their marriage and the hugely influential Sonic Youth itself.
Writing on Facebook, Moore, 64, said, “Sonic Life tells the story of my childhood and teenage years as I fell in love with music (for the most part unbridled rock ’n’ roll) and how it drove me to New York City, where I would co-found Sonic Youth. It’s an adventure that would take me around the globe throughout the 1980s, 90s, and onward, engaging with the magic music of visionaries, artists, and wild angels turning the world on its ear.”
