About Andrew W.K.

Not just a party animal but a party guerrilla, Andrew W.K. burst onto the scene in the early 2000s with a hybrid of rock, metal, and pop that celebrated and amplified the most brazen and bombastic attributes of all three styles. His 2002 debut, I Get Wet, established the super-sized pop-metal sound and party-positive ethos that soon became his hallmark and which he displayed on-stage night after night in a frenzy of unrelenting, sweat-soaked energy. Over the coming years, W.K. evolved himself into a sort of multidisciplinary role as musical party ambassador, motivational speaker, advice columnist, and television personality. He also branched out into production, working with a range of artists from Lee "Scratch" Perry to Baby Dee, while delivering eclectic albums of his own like 2009's solo piano set 55 Cadillac and the Japanese anime cover project Gundam Rock. Much of the 2010s were devoted to speaking engagements, lecture appearances, and operating his New York nightclub, though W.K. later returned to rock music with 2018's You're Not Alone and 2021's God Is Partying.
