Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about Acid for the Children, Flea describes the book as an origin story. "It ends where the Red Hot Chili Peppers begins," he says, adding, "It's my great hope that it could be a book that could live beyond being a celebrity book or a rock star book and just stand on its own as a piece of literature."

Originally scheduled for a September release, Acid for the Children will now arrive November 27. It features a foreword by Patti Smith.
