“This is the first time that the Whigs' backstory and history have been told in their entirety. Nothing in the book is speculation, myth or guesswork. Save for my musical commentary, everything is factual and told from first-hand sources,” Gendron told Paste:Local. “Whether the issue is the recording of the record, inspiration behind songs, [Greg] Dulli's mental state, Elektra's promotional efforts, members' chemical abuses, press coverage, Steve Earle's departure from the band or anything in between, it's all covered, and done so via research and talks with the people who were there.”

Tonight's book release and signing at Hideout will go from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Free pizza will be offered!
