“Our anti-hero is floating in a tiny lifeboat made of heroin, graveyard shifts & rock music. His companions are two fabulous women; a bombshell who robs banks & a beautifully pale rock violinist who can barely dodge suicide. ICWD is much funnier & more satisfying than any other junkie rock’n’roll tragedy.” – John Doe (X)

“Bland is a brutally funny and bravely honest writer. A perfect guide through the bloodshot streets and desperate bedrooms of the underground wilderness.” – Dave Alvin (Blasters)

“In Case We Die is beautiful and brutal. The prose are visceral, eloquent and moving. Addiction, love and music in the seedy underworld of rainy Seattle in the 1990’s …  so vivid I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t back there again. Danny Bland is a modern Charles Bukowski.” – Mike McCready (Pearl Jam)

“In Case We Die is a poetic and elegant journey … straight to the gutter.” – Wayne Kramer (MC5)

“Beautiful, literary redemption.” – Exene Cervenka (X)

“A great piece of work — full of filth and heart.” – Steve Earle

“A suitably Peckinpah finale. Bravo. It has been like a traveling dream state and sometimes familiar look into the abyss.” – Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs)

“I am a believer in what Bland has to say. He writes with eloquence, candor, darkness, and humor….the good stuff!” – Duff McKagan (Guns ‘N’ Roses)

Danny Bland is one of the most interesting people I’ve ever known. Beneath a crusty, punk rock exterior lies one of the biggest hearts I’ve ever seen. This book? It’s the literary version of Danny Bland.” – Damien Echols (West Memphis Three)
