The undisputed king of partying, Andrew W.K. is set to appear in Norwich on his first full band tour of the UK in five years.

The California born, Michigan raised, New York-based musician will bring his ‘The Party Never Dies Tour’ to the Waterfront on April 18, following release of his new album, You’re Not Alone.

Andrew W.K. breakthrough came with 2001’s I Get Wet, which featured fist-pumping hit singles Party Hard, We Want Fun and She Is Beautiful, and tracks like It’s Time To Party and Party ‘Til You Puke.

You’re Not Alone, set for release on March 2, is his first studio album of entirely new rock songs in nearly 12 and a belated follow-up to 2009’s 55 Cadillac and Gundam Rock.

Declaring the party is reborn, the album seems set to deliver everything one would want and expect of an Andrew W.K. record — high octane, full throttle rock ’n’ roll powered by buoyant, infectious, and triumphant melodies.

The album’s striking newly unveiled cover art has been created by the legendary Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, masters of fantasy art who have worked closely with Andrew over a six month period, crafting the painting based on his unique vision.

Andrew W.K.’s musical success has led to TV, hosting shows like MTV2’s Your Friend, Andrew W.K., Kerrang! TV’s Andrew W.K.’s Party Hard 100, and the Cartoon Network’s Destroy Build Destroy, a spell as a motivational speaker and a dabble with politics with his Party Party.
