Zakk Wylde's popular 'Bringing Metal to the Children: The Complete Berzerker's Guide to World Domination' book is being released in paperback on April 9, and to celebrate, Wylde is hitting the road for a new book tour.

The rocker reveals he'll be "doom trooping" throughout the West Coast in late April and early May in support of the book. Wylde will take part in a special book reading, a Q&A session for those in attendance, and he'll provide an acoustic performance at the stops, as well.

The trek gets under way April 22 at the El Rey Theatre in Chico, Calif., and it runs through May 1 at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, Calif. Tickets go on sale this Friday. Check here for ticketing information.

The book shares what it's really like out on the road and is written from Wylde's unique perspective. Pre-order the paperback edition here.
