Andrew W.K.

After playing with dozens of experimental, metal, punk, and noise bands in his native Michigan, Andrew W.K. moved to New York City in 1998 and quickly built a reputation for his sweaty and ultra-intense live performances. With the release of his 2001 debut album, I Get Wet, this bloody nose cypher suddenly became the new millennium’s most unexpected and perplexing star. Part hard-rock-hero, part piano-smashing-sorcerer, part positive-party-guru, Andrew W.K. created a deceptively simple and addicting concoction of cinematic rock and keyboard driven sing-along melodies. Now, after more than 20 years of entertaining an ever expanding audience, Andrew W.K. remains an unswervingly consistent presence, tirelessly providing his fellow partiers a dizzying array of experiences, often with unsettling and unknowable undertones. Using a laser-like focus and an unflinching determination, Andrew W.K. continues his never-ending quest to party harder than before, and to bring you with him into the abyss… and beyond.
