This is his first studio album that is filled with entirely new rock songs in nearly twelve years. It is full throttle rock ’n’ roll powered by buoyant, infectious, and triumphant melodies. His music is always extreme: relentlessly upbeat and celebratory.
The songs in this album are made to be reflections on freedom, hedonism and responsibility, a path to self-actualisation and explores nuance and contradiction.
Andrew W.K. wants the album “to be confirmation of everything you are, rejection of all you are not, and at times, a blurring of the difference between the two”.
The album reveals itself through double meanings, mirrored outlooks ringing equally true, even at their most severely discordant. Doubt becomes certainty, confusion becomes clarity, and the fear of life becomes the courage to live it completely.
Andrew W.K. has lived a life explaining that to reach a state of grace and acceptance, one must embrace both the shadow and the light, the pain and the joy, all that is known and unknown, the stability as well as the chaos of life, and its speed and torpor.
He believes that trusting and following the inner voice, music consciousness and using it as a guide. The album hopes to harness the power of partying, and to celebrate the puzzles and pressures of life.
The name of this album represents through good times and bad, ups and downs, highs and lows. The biggest hope for the album is for music fans to listen and realise one fundamental thing: You’re not alone.
Andrew W.K. will tour the UK in April 2018.
