Can’t-Wait Wednesday: We Sold Our Souls by Grady Hendrix

I haven’t read any of Grady Hendrix’s fiction yet, but I love Paperbacks From Hell and his essays.  His fiction is definitely on my radar.  When I saw the premise for his newest book I had to jump on it.  (And the publisher was kind enough to provide me with a review copy that I will be cracking open in the next few days.)

Can’t Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings.

In this hard-rocking, spine-tingling supernatural thriller, the washed-up guitarist of a ‘90s heavy metal band embarks on an epic road-trip across America and deep into the web of a sinister conspiracy.

Grady Hendrix, horror writer and author of Paperbacks from Hell and My Best Friend’s Exorcism, is back with his most electrifying novel yet. In the 1990s, heavy metal band Dürt Würk was poised for breakout success—but then lead singer Terry Hunt embarked on a solo career and rocketed to stardom as Koffin, leaving his fellow bandmates to rot in obscurity. 

Two decades later, former guitarist Kris Pulaski works as the night manager of a Best Western—she’s tired, broke, and unhappy. Everything changes when a shocking act of violence turns her life upside down, and she begins to suspect that Terry  sabotaged more than just the band. 

Kris hits the road, hoping to reunite with the rest of her bandmates and confront the man who ruined her life. It’s a journey that will take her from the Pennsylvania rust belt to a celebrity rehab center to a music festival from hell. A furious power ballad about never giving up, even in the face of overwhelming odds, We Sold Our Souls is an epic journey into the heart of a conspiracy-crazed, pill-popping, paranoid country that seems to have lost its very soul…where only a lone girl with a guitar can save us all.

Preorder We Sold Our Souls here.  We Sold Our Souls comes out on September 18.

    This book sounds awesome. Doubly so if it revolves around the metal music scene. I think I’m going to have to read it.
