Andrew W.K. recently released You're Not Alone and he's ready to get started on a September run of tour dates in further support of the album! After demolishing South By Southwest back in the spring, he began a full spring tour and he's now ready to carry that momentum forward into the fall.
In addition to the new tour and his latest music, here are a couple of facts that you may not have known about Andrew. For one, he has formed his own political party called The Party Party, as well as gone on a fifty state 'Power of Partying' speaking tour. He's also been named 'Person of the Year' by the American Association of Suicidology as a result of the positive message of his music and his vitality for life.
You're Not Alone is Andrew's first studio record in over a decade. It has received a very positive reception from both fans and critics. Andrew released a new video for "Music Is Worth Living For" back in the spring, which you can view below. The video takes him and his band into a dark, supernatural atmosphere.
Describing the video, Andrew said, "Music Is Worth Living For', finds me and my band in the throes of a colossal vision quest. Determined to party harder than ever, we steel ourselves against alien elements and battle a formless but formidable storm. Multiplying myself, I attempt to transcend the whirling void by engaging in a series of flailing spiritual maneuvers, vainly wrestling with the emptiness of my own soul. Alas, I discover I had already been consumed by my own triumphantly pathetic creation. And at this moment of devastatingly poignant clarity, I realize I'm back where I started, trapped inside the hardest party of all: Being alive."
