Creed singer Scott Stapp has been very open about his past issues with drugs, alcohol and depression, but now he's decided to tell his story in a more literary form.

The vocalist has revealed that his new memoir, 'Sinner's Creed,' will arrive in stores Oct. 2. It will be available through Tyndale House Publishers.

Billboard reports that Stapp worked closely with Rolling Stone writer David Ritz to share his struggles with fame, sex, alcohol, drugs and depression. In recent years, Stapp has cleaned up his act, reunited with his former bandmates and become a family man.

The singer says, "The book describes my childhood, my internal battles with drugs and depression and how I lost control of my life. My memoir reveals never before released details about my life and the challenges I've faced before coming to grips and finding sobriety."

The book will be available in both hardback and e-book editions. Pre-orders are under way here.

Creed are currently out on tour through Sept. 8.
