Bad Brains vocalist HR recently announced a NYC show after being nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Pitchfork points out that there's also a biography on him coming out. It's called Finding Joseph I: An Oral History of H.R. from Bad Brains, and it's due out January 17 via Lesser Gods. It was written by by Howie Abrams and James Lathos, and features interviews with HR and other Bad Brains members, plus members of Black Flag, Cro-Mags, Guns N' Roses, Deftones, The Roots, Ian MacKaye (who also commented on Bad Brains' Rock Hall nom), and more.

Co-author James Lathos is also directing a documentary called Finding Joseph I, which will premiere at the Doc'n Roll Film Fest in London on November 10. Watch the trailer:
