Here you can see Andrew W.K. holding up a flier that I had printed out and passed around to people at the venue. He was kind enough to pick one up off the stage and speak about AndrewWKMusic for a moment. There’s still 27 different concerts to take place on the world tour. Would you be so kind to print and pass out the same flier at your concert? Throw a couple on stage, there’s a chance Andrew will take notice and look at it. Get the word out.  :)

I printed 20 pages (4 x 20 = 80) and that seemed to be plenty to go around. Or save ink:

Thank you!

My special show review is coming soon….

CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS Reissues ANDREW W.K’s ‘I Get Wet’ Album to Celebrate the 10-Year Anniversary of Its Release.

A decade ago, pop-metal party icon, ANDREW W.K., released his renowned debut album, I Get Wet. In honor of the album’s 10-year anniversary, ANDREW W.K. has joined forces with CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS for a special re-issue edition to be released on July 17, 2012.

With Andrew being a huge metal fan himself and a huge fan of Century Media in particular, both parties were more than ecstatic when the opportunity arose to pair up for this special release. Andrew explains, “Even after all these years, I clearly remember the first day I heard the band Mayhem’s album, “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas”. Its dark psychedelic sensations made me realize I had found a new destiny – and had found the greatest music ever made. When I turned that seminal Mayhem album over and looked at the fine-print on the back cover, I saw a bold and clear stamp bearing the name CENTURY MEDIA. Another wave of destiny washed over me and a new dream was born: that I, Andrew W.K., would somehow be part of this great label’s story of musical power and glory. This fantastic company was not only willing to be an active player in the most crucial and illuminating of the arts (aka music), but also was willing to submit themselves to the same higher calling which motivated their most dedicated and influential artists. It gives me great pride and pleasure to confirm that CENTURY MEDIA is the destined home for our special edition of ‘I GET WET’. It also gives me proof that dreams not only come true, but that they make dreams into real power. Never in a million zillion years would I have imagined that the black wizards would use their cosmic keys to create a time for my humble musical dreams. The moon may be frozen, but its cold light is brighter than ever. Let my album’s release and all our collective efforts help shine an even brighter light on all of humanity, and to further prove that the manifestation is not just underway; it is complete.”

Century Media Records Director of Marketing, Matt Polen, adds, “When we heard Andrew W.K. was looking for a partner for this release, we jumped at the chance team up. I think I speak for the whole company when I say it’s a dream for us to work with him.”

 

I Get Wet features hit songs that helped make ANDREW W.K. the household name that he is today. The album includes party anthems, “Party Hard”, “Party Til You Puke” and “She Is Beautiful”. This special reissue will include not only the full-length original album, but also a second disc featuring a generous helping of neverbefore- heard live recordings, early demo versions, alternate mixes and other previously unreleased material. There will also be a limited number of autographed deluxe editions each containing a very special “SOMETHING” directly from Andrew’s private collection – including everything from a lock of his hair to a world tour airplane ticket stub. In addition to the special CD release, I Get Wet will also be reissued as a special double gate-fold vinyl LP.

ANDREW W.K. is currently headlining his highly successful 2012 world tour. And in honor of the 10-year anniversary of the I Get Wet album, his full band is performing the entire track-listing live, from front to back, at every show.

In between dates of the “I Get Wet” tour, Andrew also found time to make a lasting impression at the 2012 South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas. On top of hosting and leading a number of panels, his band played a several official SXSW showcases and day parties, including a headlining slot at the extravagant Century Media Records / CVLT Nation / Stumptown Coffee Rosters day party. Sufficed to say, everyone partied very hard and definitely all got wet.

A bonus disc?! I cannot wait! I know a lot of people were frustrated by how many different versions of Close Calls With Brick Walls there were. However, I felt that the last release (the US version) that came with a “bonus disc” was easily well worth the price point it was placed at. Basically I was buying “Mother of Mankind” and this time around I’ll be buying the bonus disc for 14.99 -or whatever the amount is. Having a re-release is just the cherry on top.

OK PEOPLE! Lets get this party started!!! Andrew W.K.’s 2012 world tour has already been kicked off March 3rd in Portland, Oregon. What are we waiting for? This is our time and this is the place for fans to come together and share/archive photos, bootleg sound recordings, videos, experiences, and show reviews. Discuss all these things in this forum thread. Upload your media content here. Check out all the upcoming dates here. Buy the official T Shirt here.

I will be traveling over 600 miles from Idaho to Colorado for a single night of AWK FUN. I’m planning to video  my experience in a mini documentary.  You can plan on that being uploaded and posted to this website shortly after March 20th. Also, be excited for a full bootlegged video of that show.

I snagged this set list photo from @ZanzWorld on twitter. Whoa! A 20 song set list! This exceeds my expectations. I AM PERSONALLY SO EXCITED FOR THIS! I think it’s really cool that they’re playing the entire I Get Wet album in order. It’s even more incredible we get four songs from The Wolf, two songs from Close Calls With Brick Walls and one song from the new EP! Personally I’m most excited for “Totally Stupid”.

Party Hard
