ANDREW W.K. ANNOUNCES "THE PARTY NEVER DIES TOUR"

ON TOUR NOW! NEW MUSIC COMING THIS YEAR VIA SONY MUSIC WORLDWIDE

Andrew W.K. returns to the stage with his full band for the first time in five years to deliver the total live concert experience on "The Party Never Dies Tour." Pre-sale tickets are available Wednesday, June 14 at 10am local time via Andrew's website with public on-sale this Friday, June 16.

Andrew announced the dates yesterday privately to his fans via Facebook Messenger and is finishing up new music for release later this year via Sony Music worldwide. As he readies the eventual release of a brand new rock album, his first in nearly a decade, it’s safe to say, nobody has partied harder, longer or more fervently than the undisputed King of Partying himself, Andrew W.K..

A one-man music machine possessed of a single-minded, monomaniacal focus 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. It's a mission he embarked upon in 2001, with the release of his debut single and signature tune “Party Hard,” and has never swerved from since, while also adopting a dizzying array of roles that took him into virgin territory for a rock ’n’ roll musician. These include being a columnist for the Village Voice and Vice, the host of a Cartoon Network game show, and a lecturer at Yale, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and the UK’s Oxford University. It's safe to say, Andrew's hard partying spirit is showing no signs of softening.

A full list of tour dates can be found below and Andrew will be announcing details surrounding his new album release soon.
