Subtitled, "the mind-blowing guide to all things music by the world's funniest band", the blurb promises the book "will tell you everything you need to know to be a music genius - with bizarre tales, absurd history and unbelievable facts."

Referring to the Taskmaster star who fronts the group, it adds: "Band leader Alex Horne has also added some special tasks throughout the book, so readers will be making their own music in no time at all - without even leaving the house!"

The book, featuring illustrations from Rob Flowers, will be published by Puffin in July 2024. It is available to pre-order now.

It was announced in November that they will tour live format The Horne Section's Hit Show between March and November 2024, and - as previously revealed by British Comedy Guide - the band are also working on a second series of their Channel 4 sitcom, The Horne Section TV Show.
