“Time waits for no man, and with a blink of an eye 30-plus years have passed," he continues. "My time with the band still feels like only yesterday, A musical journey I am proud to have been part of, the highs are imprinted in my soul. Live life, believe, know your ledge, make it happen.”

The group are described in the book’s bio as “Rave pioneers whose sound also encompassed hip hop, punk and rock”, with the images from Leeroy’s personal archives capturing “the wild energy, ecstasy and abandon from the moment they dropped their first hit 'Charly' through the three albums which became the ubiquitous soundtrack to the decade.”

The announcement comes in a year which marks five years since the passing of late frontman Keith Flint in March 2019.
