It's safe to say, nobody has partied harder, longer or more fervently than the undisputed King of Partying himself, Andrew W.K.

A one-man music machine possessed of a single-minded, monomaniacal focus to spread a singular message: 'That to party is to exist, and to exist is to party', Andrew continues to passionately deliver his extremely high-energy brand of uplifting entertainment.

It's a mission he embarked upon in 2001, with the release of his debut single and signature tune 'Party Hard', and hasn't swerved from since, while also adopting a dizzying array of roles that took him into virgin territory for a rock 'n' roll musician.

These include being a columnist for the Village Voice and Vice; the host of a Cartoon Network game show; and a lecturer at Yale, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and Oxford University.

More recently, he has revealed the name and artwork for brand new album 'You're Not Alone' which is due for release on March 2 via Music For Nations.

The artwork was done by the legendary Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, two masters of fantasy art work, who Andrew worked with closely over a six month period, crafting the painting based on his unique vision.
