Vinnie Stigma, the guitarist from Agnostic Front, has written a children’s book, “I Thought You Were My Friend,” that he hopes to publish soon. Stigma believes that this book will help educate the youth on things they need to know in life (such as how to jump start a car, so they won’t be “so freakin’ dumb”). The story is about five rabbits from Coney Island who find themselves on the streets of New York at night, trying to get back home. The pop-up, scratch-and-sniff book is intended for children, but is aimed to be enjoyed by adults as well. For the curious mind, you can read more about what Stigma has to say about his book.

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
