It was announced that Andrew W.K. will be joining Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg as the lead singer for their 2013 world tour. The punk drumming icon and his band will be fronted by the king of partying for a high-octane performance of more than THIRTY of Marky’s classic fan-favorite songs!
The historic pairing will kick-off their world tour in New York City on May 3rd, 2013 at Andrew’s very own venue, Santos Party House, in downtown Manhattan. Following that show is a wealth of national and international dates. For full dates and more info click below...
Speaking on how he chose Andrew W.K. as his singer, Ramone said, “I first met Andrew through a mutual friend and he told me about his party philosophy, which has also always been my exact take on life. We went into the rehearsal studio and it just clicked. We had so much fun that we wanted to invite everyone to the party. I’ve said before and I will say it again, these songs are too good not to be played live!!!”
W.K. echoed Ramone’s sentiment, saying, “When Marky Ramone asks you to be his singer, you don’t even think about it. It’s an automatic, YES. I was intimidated by the magnitude of the opportunity – freaked out and overwhelmed – but I was also completely determined and focused – it’s something I had to do. Even just the first rehearsal felt like an odyssey, but that’s how you can tell the experience is changing your life."
Andrew W.K. has been a constant figure in national media ever since his 2000 debut, and in recent years he’s been spreading his message of positive partying and high-energy entertainment with even greater intensity. An example of his lasting influence is the recent 10th Anniversary Deluxe release of his landmark debut album, I Get Wet, the world tour of which sold out dates across the U.S., Europe, Australia and Japan. Andrew continues to surprise, confound, and engage his audience with an expanding array of energetic and enthusiastic entertainment.
