A new High On Fire record isn't the only thing vocalist and guitarist Matt Pike has been working on lately. Pike has teamed up with Rare Bird for an illustrated retrospective of Pike's lyrics, titled Head On A Pike: The Illustrated Lyrics of Matt Pike.
“Matt Pike’s lyrics are just as important and powerful as his riffs, and his words deserve to be celebrated alongside the fantastic imagery that the artists have put together in this book,” said Tyson Cornell, Publisher, Rare Bird. “‘Head On A Pike’ is a natural for any Sleep, High on Fire or Matt Pike fan, but the work is also relevant to greater conversations around lyrical poetry, formal and free verse and tattoo inspirations for years to come.”
Head On A Pike features brand-new artistic interpretations of Pike's lyrics from famous artists like Arik Roper, David V. D'Andrea, Santos, Brian Mercer, Skinner, Jondix, Stash, Tim Lehi, Jordan Barlow, and Derrick Snodgrass
Head On A Pike: The Illustrated Lyrics of Matt Pike is due out November 9 and the trade edition will retail for $20. Signed hardcovers and signed limited edition bundles are available through Rare Bird at rarebirdlit.com.
