Mike D and Ad-Rock will also talk about their album, Licensed to Ill, among many other things. The Beastie Boys are "interested in challenging the form and making the book a multidimensional experience", [Julie] Grau said in an interview.

That's why the book's release date was pushed back, and now, it looks like the memoir will officially see an October 30 release.

The 592-page book will be available in hardback and e-book format. "Well, it's nearly done and it's coming out soon", the Boys said in a tweet.

Kinda nice, right? It's got a little something for everyone.

With their playoffs qualification hopes hanging by a thread, seventh-placed RCB will need nothing less than a win on Thursday. With a poor start to the campaign, RCB led by Virat Kohli is still at No. 7th position with just 10 points in 12 games.

Beastie Boys is an American hip-hop band from New York City formed in 1979.

Band members Mike D and Ad-Rock have been working on their memoir since 2013, but it was only this year that they announced it to their fans. Instead, Beastie Boys Book supports the usual narrative with rare photographs, original illustrations, a cookbook from chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys' New York, mixtape playlists and more - no wonder it's nearly 600 pages. Here is their story, told for the first time in the words of the band.

Almost five years ago, it was announced that Beastie Boys' Mike D and Ad-Rock were working on a memoir about the group.

So there you have it. Beastie Boys Book isn't just a memoir from one of the '80s and '90s most iconic acts. You can pre-order the forthcoming release here.
