Wayward: Fetching Tales from a Year on the Road

Posted by - 02:26 PM on 03/20/12
Tom Gates, former manager of Brand New and The Format, and currently of Good Old War -- has released his new book, Wayward: Fetching Tales from a Year on the Road. I haven't read it yet (but will soon) - however, long-time readers will remember one of the (fantastic) pieces he wrote about the break-up of The Format. I'm looking forward to reading it.
Book DescriptionWayward is a gripping, observant and hilarious collection of travel pieces written by Tom Gates, who here re-invents himself as accomplished writer after fifteen years of working with some of the biggest names in the music business. His travel stories have had millions of views online and are collected within for the first time. The content of Wayward was written during a yearlong trip around the world, during which the author lived in twelve countries over twelve months

Update: It's also available on iBooks.

It's on iBooks as well (bought it there earlier).

I believe a physical copy will be released in the future (if Facebook is to be believed).

I'm going to have to read that book. That piece about The Format was what made me check them out in the first place.
