Skunk Anansie‘s Skin has announced that her autobiography will be released later this year.

It Takes Blood & Guts is set for release on September 24, telling the story of how Skunk Anansie forged their career at sweat-drenched London gigs, before eventually headlining Glastonbury in 1999.

An official synopsis teases: “The book will tell her story from a difficult childhood growing up in Brixton, fighting poverty and prejudice, through the bands early days, huge success and timeless performances, her work as a social and cultural activist, championing LGBTQ+ rights, advocating women and young people in the arts and music industry, a fashion icon, model and muse and her legacy as one of the most influential women in British rock.”

Skunk Anansie made history when they headlined Glastonbury in 1999, with Skin becoming the first black woman to take top billing at the legendary festival.
