The Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess is to release his own memoir.

The book - called 'Telling Stories', a nod to the band's 1997 album 'Tellin' Stories' - was penned by the singer himself and is due out on April 26.

According to publishers Penguin, Burgess' memoir "describes the mad life of a rock star: the dynamics of the band, the creativity and the self-destruction, the sex and the drugs but also the rock 'n roll" along with his influences and his encounters with Bob Dylan, New Order, The Rolling Stones and Oasis.

The release will coincide with the band's plans to tour the album, which features some of their biggest hits, including 'North Country Boy', 'One To Another' and 'How High'. During the LP's recording, keyboard player Rob Collins also died in a car crash.

The Charlatans will play:

Manchester O2 Apollo (June 1)
London HMV Hammersmith Apollo (8)
Glasgow Barrowland (9)
