A New Tragically Hip Biography is Coming

ECW Press is one of the best Canadian publishing houses when it comes to books on our musical history. Their next major project is a new biography on the Tragically Hip.

The Never-Ending Present, set for release next album, is written by Michael Barclay. They were also responsible for the very fine Have Not Been the Same: The CanRock Renaissance 1985-1995, which was also published by ECW.

CORRECTION TO A PREVIOUS VERSION OF THIS POST: Gord Downie didn’t write the forward for this book; he wrote the forward for Have Not Been the Same. And Michael Barclay is writing the book solo. Duh. My error.
