Andrew W.K. to Sing for Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg on World Tour


Party rocker Andrew W.K. will join Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg as the lead vocalist for their upcoming world tour. The run will kick off on May 3 at Andrew's venue Santos Party House in NYC. Check out a full list of dates below, and click here for tickets.

Says Marky Ramone, “I first met Andrew through a mutual friend and he told me about his party philosophy, which has also always been my exact take on life. We went into the rehearsal studio and it just clicked. We had so much fun that we wanted to invite everyone to the party. I’ve said before and I will say it again, these songs are too good not to be played live!!!”

According to Andrew W.K., “When Marky Ramone asks you to be his singer, you don’t even think about it. It’s an automatic, YES. I was intimidated by the magnitude of the opportunity – freaked out and overwhelmed – but I was also completely determined and focused – it’s something I had to do. Even just the first rehearsal felt like an odyssey, but that’s how you can tell the experience is changing your life. I’ve never had a more rewarding, humbling, or challenging invitation than this, and I’m serving the gods via this incredible sound Marky and his band created. There’s never been better rock ‘n’ roll music made than this, and I will give everything I have to do it justice.”
