Aug. 12 — Audiences around the world will soon get to read Ronnie James Dio’s new autobiography.
According to information in a press release distributed Thursday, the book, Rainbow in the Dark, will start publishing in multiple languages starting Aug. 27 in Germany. Additionally, publications in Finnish, Bulgarian, Portugese (in Brazil), Japanese, Swedish, Italian, and Polish are coming, as well as in Hungarian in the first quarter of 2022, the document states.
Rainbow in the Dark originally published last month through Permuted Press in the United States and Canada, and through Constable in the United Kingdom. The autobiography collects Ronnie James Dio’s own notes that he wrote throughout his life for its story. The story starts in Dio’s childhood and runs up through his namesake band’s premiere at Madison Square Garden in 1987.
Co-written by music journalist Mick Wall and RJD’s wife Wendy, the book premiered at #12 on Publisher’s Weekly‘s Hard cover/Non-Fiction Best Sellers list last week.
