    Andrew W.K. will release his first new album in over a decade on March 2nd, 2018. The full press release can be found below.

    New York, NY (September 18, 2017) – Party God Andrew W.K. is thrilled to announce his first new full length album in over a decade. The LP showcases Andrew’s signature style of blasting triumphant rock music, with an ever more epic expanses of energizing emotional ecstasy. “I’m going for the sound of pure, unadulterated power; every emotion, every thought, every experience, every sensation, every fear, every joy, every clarity, every confusion, every up, every down… all extruded and concentrated into one thick syrup of super life-force feeling, and then psychically amplified by the celebratory spirit of glorious partying,” explans Andrew. The new release is out March 2, 2018 via Sony Music worldwide. Album title and cover art to follow.
    This week, Andrew W.K. officially begins his first full-band concert outing in five years with “The Party Never Dies Tour”. Starting tonight in Minneapolis, Andrew brings his party-centric positivity across America, with additional shows added due to high demand in San Francisco and Boston as well as a new Chicago headlining show (following the success of their stage-closing Riot Fest performance just last night). The previously announced UK tour dates are now moving from November to April, 2018. All tickets bought for the November tour will still be honored at the new dates, or can be refunded at the point of purchase. A full list of all dates can be found below.

    A one-man music machine possessed by a single-minded, monomaniacal focus on euphoric joy, Andrew lives to spread a singular message: That to party is to exist, and to exist is to party. Andrew continues to passionately deliver his extremely high-energy brand of uplifting entertainment, with a unrelenting commitment to continuing the mission he first embarked upon in 2001, with the release of his debut single and signature tune “Party Hard”, and has never swerved from since. Despite taking on a dizzying array of additional roles that took him into virgin territory for a rock ‘n’ roll musician (ie: advice columnist for the Village Voice and Vice, host of a Cartoon Network kid’s game show, lecturer at Yale, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and the UK’s Oxford University), Andrew has always remained true to his positive-partying cause. It’s safe to say, Andrew’s hard partying spirit is showing no signs of softening.

    I'll give it a listen, why not. Should be fun if little else.

    Everything after The Wolf felt disjointed and he tried to get a bit more serious on top of it. Hopefully this is a fun album with a good producer.

    Does he know that’s almost seven months from now because this seems like a stupid thing to announce. Someone buy this dude a calendar amiright

    Was at the show last night and it was amazing. Talked with him after and you can tell it's a struggle to please everyone who loves the first album while staying true to himself. He said he isn't trying to replace the first record but it's a "companion" to it...can't wait!

    In many years of going to Warped Tour (starting in 2002 or 2003), I can say that Andrew W.K. was one of the best performers I've ever seen. He opened up the show one year, and it was awesome. Great performance, great energy. Just a fantastic way to get the show going. I may check this out.

    How old would you say he looks up close? I mean, I Get Wet was 16 years ago so it's hard to figure out...also how long was the show?

    I guess to me he looked maybe mid to late 30’s. He was born in 1979. So seems about right...And if I remember correctly the show was around two hours.
