Dave Grohl has announced The Storyteller, a new memoir that will arrive October 5 via Dey Street Books. The book was inspired in part by the writing he did for his Dave’s True Stories Instagram account, which he created last year during COVID-19 lockdown, ending his longstanding absence from social media. Listen to an audio trailer for the book below.

“There is a common thread that runs throughout everything that I do: storytelling. Whether in song, documentary film or on the page, I have always felt compelled to share moments from my life. This inclination is a huge part of what excites me creatively but also as a human being,” Grohl said in a press release.

Speaking on his decision to share stories on Instagram, he said, “I soon found that the reward I felt every time I posted a story was the same as the feeling I get when playing a song to an audience, so I kept on writing. The response from readers was a soul-filling as any applause in an arena. So, I took stock of all the experiences I’ve had in my life-incredible, difficult, funny and emotional-and decided it was time to finally put them into words.”

Grohl’s most recent LP with Foo Fighters, Medicine at Midnight, was released earlier this year. The band has been nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year.
